Diego Costa has taken to social media to apparently pledge his allegiance to Chelsea after he was reportedly left out of the squad for Saturday’s clash with Leicester City.

BBC Sport reported on Saturday that the Spanish striker had been dropped after a dispute with a coach over his fitness levels.

The story surfaced on Friday night amid claims that the striker has been offered a move to China that would be worth £30m a year.

Chelsea are currently gearing up for their crunch Premier League clash against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday night.

However, amid the reports about his situation, Costa uploaded the picture above onto his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “Come on Chelsea!!!💙”
