Chelsea made several attempts to re-sign Romelu Lukaku during the summer but failed to agree a fee for the striker with Everton.
Diego Costa’s amazing form for Chelsea this season means Antonio Conte doesn’t regret missing out on signing Lukaku.
“No, absolutely not,” Conte replied when asked by Standard Sports if he regrets not signing Lukaku.
“We have Diego who is playing fantastic football, not only scoring the goals but working a lot and very well for the team.
“I think that I’m seeing a complete player in Diego. It’s fantastic for me, for the team, to have him in the team. Also because he’s scoring a lot. But above all because he’s working a lot for the team. That’s very important.
“When we have our strikers, plus Eden Hazard, Pedro, Willian and Oscar… all working so well for the team, it’s fantastic. I have nothing to regret.
“Lukaku is a very good player, young and improving a lot, but it’s right to talk about my players. I’m very satisfied with my players. I hope Diego continues in this way because his commitment is incredible.”
