Diego Costa ramped up his rivalry with manager Antonio Conte yesterday by posting an Instagram video of himself partying in an Atletico Madrid shirt while his Chelsea teammates were sweating it out on their Far East tour.

What's more, when Cesc Fabregas posted "Jajaja" ("Hahaha" if you aren't cultured linguists like us) Costa replied, "Give Conte a hug".

To be fair, the Italian manager started it.

At the end of last season, after a solid campaign from the 28 year-old Spanish striker, Conte sent him a brutal text message revealing that Costa was out of it plans.

Rumours persisted last season that Costa was looking to leave the club for a big money move to China, and this likely irritated his manager.

However, Costa has made it clear that he would now prefer to move to former club Atletico. It is yet to be seen how the Spanish club's transfer ban will effect the move (they were stopped from signing Arsenal new boy Lacazette), and he'll eat into their transfer budget, too.

For the time being, let's just all enjoy Costa's 'Single at last! Look at how much fun I'm having!' Instagram activity while it lasts.
