Chelsea fans are looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as according to Metro, Diego Costa looks set to stay at the club.
The forward has been linked with a move away from Chelsea for the last couple of months, after Filipe Luis also returned to Spain – and after such a poor start to the season, the links between Atletico Madrid and Diego Costa are still going strong.
Costa could well face retrospective action from the FA over his behaviour against Arsenal, and as our punters here in the Transfer Tavern note, that could push him further towards the exit door.
We think for now the player will stay, and he himself admitted there had been no offer from Atleti to return, so at least for the moment, Chelsea fans can breathe easy again!
Chelsea fans…… How vital is Costa for you? Would it be a case of just replacing him? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
