Life’s largely been pretty sweet for the Chelsea fans propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern, who have watched their side return to the top of English football under the masterful stewardship of Antonio Conte.
While the campaign started off somewhat mixed, the Italian has guided the Blues back to the summit with relative ease it seems as those in SW6 sail towards another league crown. Crucial to that has been the form of Diego Costa who, despite a January link with a move away, has been at his very best this term.
So, reports from the Sun have had our west London locals dancing on the pool tables. They claim the Spanish marksman is set to agree a new deal at Stamford Bridge, one that could reportedly see him earn up to £57m over the course of the five-year agreement.
It’s said the former Atletico Madrid ace will earn a whopping £220k-per-week, as well as bonuses potentially taking it up to £65m, making him the club’s highest-paid player. Expensive he may be, though many of the Chelsea fans in the bar believe he’s worth it.
