Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho may be in line for another sensational announcement according to the Daily Mail and our punters in the Football Transfer Tavern cannot wait.
The publication have claimed that the Blues boss could be in line to land his number one summer transfer target in the coming days and potentially before the end of the week.
Diego Costa is the player in question and it seems that Atletico Madrid are finally willing to cash in on the player, who Jose Mourinho considers vital to any title challenge next season.
Chelsea finished last season trophyless and as one our punters moves over to the pool table, they make the point that Mourinho knows that will not be an option next season, with at last one major trophy required.
We had thought that the deal for Costa had stalled due to the La Liga winners wanting to hold out for more money.
However, given Diego Simeone’s side have turned their attentions to Manchester City’s Alvaro Negredo, Atleti are willing to accept the £32 million Chelsea have offered.
Chelsea fans. Is Costa the answer to your prayers or are you worried he might just be a little bit like Fernando Torres, Mateja Kezman and Andriy Shevchenko? Let us know your thoughts below.
