The Daily Express says Spanish journalist Diego Torres Romano suggested that Abramovich isn't keen on Costa in any case.
Citing talks with a member of influential agent Jorge Mendes' camp, Romano insists that PSG's Cavani remains the Russian's preferred target.
He tweeted: "Last news from Mendes's camp is that Abramovich said he wouldn't sign Costa. The Russian wants Cavani."
