Chinese Super League team Tianjin Quanjian have distanced themselves from reports linking them with signing Antonio Conte’s key player Diego Costa.

Tianjin Quanjian have been linked with a big-money move for the Spaniard forward, who has two more years left on his current deal.

The 28-year-old forward has found the net for 20 times for Chelsea this term winning a second Premier League title since his £32million from Atletico Madrid back in 2014.

He has also been linked with a return to La Liga. He admitted previously frustrations over his life at London.

A statement on Tianjin’s official website said: “During the past six months the club has not communicated with Diego Costa or his agent regarding his transfer to Tianjin Quanjian.”

Spaniard has been linked with a £76m move but Chinese club added that they are not ready to spend big this summer.
