It is a busy day for Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern and the Daily Mail have made it that little bit busier.
The publication have claimed that the Blues are willing to offer returning forward Romelu Lukaku as part of the deal for Diego Costa.
The news surrounding the now imminent £32 million deal for Atletico Madrid forward Costa broke on Monday night and we think that the deal Chelsea have in mind is simply shocking.
The Blues are willing to allow Romelu Lukaku to join the Spanish club in order to get their man and hopefully knock some money off the price as well – not that the news has gone down well in the tavern with Blues fans at all.
Our punters get their pints and some free snacks from the bar whilst they have a good gossip with our landlord.
The big man seems to be under the impression that this will not be the end of Chelsea’s summer spending and the door at Stamford Bridge could well be revolving for a long while yet!
Do you think that Chelsea should send Lukaku to Spain in order to land Costa or is this another big mistake? Let us know your thoughts below.
