Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are discussing a shock piece of gossip that’s emerged this weekend, that suggests the Blues want to offload one of their fan favourites in January.
The Daily Mirror says that Chelsea are set to offload Diego Costa in the New Year, with the Blues targeting two new faces to bolster their forward line in January.
Chelsea want to bring two strikers into their squad in January and, as such, Diego Costa will be offloaded to make room and free-up funds.
Jose Mourinho is said to have tried to offload the controversial Spanish forward over the summer but could not find a suitable replacement. This season, Costa has struggled to replicate the form from his inaugural Premier League season and Chelsea’s campaign has suffered in a result.
Despite being extremely controversial, and struggling for form, Costa remains a firm favourite with the Blues supporters and many at the bar will feel extremely aggrieved if the former Atletico Madrid man leaves West London.
Chelsea fans, is offloading Diego Costa a good idea? Let us know in the comments below!
