Diego Costa avoids Chelsea fine

Chelsea striker Diego Costa has not been fined for a 'bust-up' with Antonio Conte, after reports in 'The Sun' claimed that the player had been hit with a £185,000 fine.

The British tabloid newspaper reported that Costa had been fined for a bust-up with manager Antonio Conte, amid reports of a potential move to China.

The Brazil-born Spain international was left out of Chelsea's squad to face Leicester on Saturday, but the club claimed that the striker was suffering from a back injury.

A source from Chelsea Football Club has since denied reports that Costa was made to pay a £185,000 fine for his part in the alleged bust-up.

"We don't fine players when they injure their backs," the figure told 'Sky Sports News'.

The 28-year-old has reportedly made up with Conte and will be in contention to face Hull on Sunday.
