Diego Costa leaving
Chelsea have stated that they have no interest in selling Costa this month but with the English transfer window open for another two weeks and the Chinese one not ending until February 28th, the speculation will certainly continue for a good while yet – not good news for the Blues punters who were hoping for a straightforward run to the Premier League title.
Whatever the dispute or fallout is – maybe it’s time to get the bouncers involved – it appears to be bigger than then Blues are letting on and they simply can’t afford to have the Spaniard unhappy, or on strike, if they are to see off the challenge of the teams behind them in the standings – the fans standing at the bar will be nervously sipping on their drinks.
Yes, they beat Leicester easily on Saturday but there will be matches when they need the clinical finishing of Costa – who has arguably been one of the main reasons they are where they are in the table this term – but being without him for a considerable amount of time would be detrimental to their hopes of winning the trophy.
