Eric Cantona believes that Diego Costa is set to “screw” Chelsea in the summer transfer window.

The Brazilian forward’s future has been a relentless source of speculation in recent weeks amid reports linking him with a possible move away from Chelsea this summer.

Costa himself suggested after the FA Cup final that the only club he would be interested in leaving Chelsea to join would be Atletico Madrid.

The forward’s situation looks set to be one of the main talking points of the summer transfer window as the build up to next season gathers pace.

However, Cantona has offered his own unique explanation for Costa’s behaviour after Chelsea won the Premier League title this season.

Cantona told Eurosport: “Chelsea has won the Premier League and Diego Costa found a very creative way to celebrate.

“He started with a gentle cupping of John Terry’s testicles and then a sweet grind behind his trainer’s derriere.

“This is a clear message for the team’s bosses regarding his possible departure: I take you by the balls, and I am about to screw you as well.”

Chelsea won the Premier League this season but were beaten 2-1 by Arsenal in the FA Cup final on Saturday as they missed out on the chance to win a domestic double under Antonio Conte.
