The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are feeling rather happy today…
Life is pretty easy as a football fan when you’re the reigning Premier League champions, but there is even more good news on the horizon for the Blues it seems.
According to Di Marzio correspondent David Amoyal on Twitter, the Blues are closing in on securing a contract extension for Diego Costa – a move that would surely put his future beyond doubt.

Of course, Costa is a controversial figure, and at times he has divided the Chelsea fans, but everybody recognises his talent, and it is clear that the Blues would struggle to find someone that could get even close to his goalscoring record.
With Chelsea needing to improve their side this summer, the first port of call for Antonio Conte is undoubtedly to ensure that his key players stay at the club, and Costa would certainly fall under that banner. The fans are holding their breath until it is confirmed, but they are cautiously optimistic.
The Chelsea fans on the Chelsea Subreddit have taken a very similar approach, with most supporters completely behind this deal. Costa, for them, is a key player, and they think that his retention could open up space for a number of other major acquisitions.
