First Dimitri Payet has refused to play for West Ham and has demanded a transfer away from the Hammers, according to manager Slaven Bilic, and now Diego Costa has not traveled with Chelsea for their game at Leicester City on Saturday.

Costa, 27, has reportedly had his head turned by a huge contract offer from the Chinese Super League with his agent Jorge Mendes in China discussing the move. Couple that with a report which claims that Costa had a bust up with a member of Chelsea’s medical staff in the week and that is not good news for Blues boss Antonio Conte.

Can Chelsea really afford to sell Costa, the top scorer in the PL with 14 goals this season? If they do then their title chances will take a big hit and the rest of the title contenders will be handed a big boost.
