Euro giants make lethal Chelsea star priority target, boss issues stunning ultimatum

Costa 1

Love him or loathe him, the name Diego Costa has been bandied about the Transfer Tavern in raucous debate ever since he arrived in England two summers ago.

Whether it be the Chelsea fans waxing lyrical about his exploits in front of goal, or the opposition supporters lamenting his antics, there is little doubt the Spaniard gets the people going.

So, imagine the delight among some and the despair among others following reports in the Daily Star that the 27-year old could soon be on his way out of Stamford Bridge.

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has reportedly demanded the club sign their former star if they want to get him to stay at the club, in the wake of their Champions League final defeat to city rivals Real Madrid.

The forward left Los Rojiblancos in 2014 in order to move to West London, though his second season has been marred by inconsistency after a stunning opening campaign.

While Antonio Conte is believed to be keen on keeping him the Blues, the high profile chase of Romelu Lukaku could increase competition in the central striking berth.

Can you really see Costa at Chelsea next season?
