Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern would have been rocked by the news that top goalscorer, and star striker Diego Costa was rumoured to be keen on a move to China earlier this month.
With those stories seemingly dying down and the Spaniard returning to the Blues’ starting line-up and getting a goal in the 2-0 win against Hull City at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, it appears as though the attacker will stay with the Premier League title hopefuls until the end of the season – something that will be relief to the Blues supporters standing at the bar.
However, reports on Monday suggest that the west London outfit would be ready to sell the 28-year-old to a Chinese Super League club, or elsewhere, should they receive a world-record £130m bid – even the landlord has to raise his eyebrows to that fee!
Whether that was to happen this month or in the summer, it would give manager Antonio Conte some big funds to strengthen his side.
