Talks said to be ongoing over Chelsea transfer deal before window slams shut

After a miserable start to the campaign, the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern were absolutely delighted to see Antonio Conte’s side beat Spurs at Wembley. 

With so much negativity surrounding the Premier League champions prior to Sunday’s game at the national stadium, beating a big rival in a crunch game has allayed fears of a crisis in west London.

Still, there is one figure looming large over the Bridge. Indeed, Diego Costa appears to be on full-blown strike against the Blues and really seems to want a return to Atletico Madrid.

Though the La Liga side are reportedly keen, everyone seems to be at an impasse right now. So, comments from Kaveh Solhekol on Twitter at least hint at some progress at that front.

He’s revealed that talks are ongoing between the two clubs over a potential deal, with Costa’s camp reportedly keen to end the drama surrounding his situation.

As you can imagine, so are the Chelsea fans propping up our bar.

Landlord’s Verdict:

Chelsea won’t be a truly harmonious environment with Costa still at odds with those behind the scenes,

While wanting big money for him is perfectly within reason, surely there comes a point that they cut their losses and get rid of a man who threatens to ruin their season.
