But Chelsea are adamant they do not want to sell at least until the end of their season.”The Telegraph, which broke the initial story of Costa being dropped for Saturday’s game at Leicester after a row, has subsequently reported that a number of Chelsea players have urged him to apologise and forget about the apparent interest from China, at least until the summer.
