Chelsea fans are looking outraged in the Football Transfer Tavern after the Daily Star claimed that Diego Costa feels forced into his proposed transfer from Atletico Madrid.
The Spanish international star has been linked with a move to the Blues almost all summer and it seems the move is almost guaranteed to happen, with Costa being asked if he would be joining Jose Mourinho and replying: “It seems that way.”
Now that seemingly reluctant comment has been taken one step further with the Atleti star claiming he is not happy at being forced to leave the La Liga champions and indeed coach Diego Simeone.
Due to a deal struck with who else but Jorge Mendes, Costa would have to pay a fee should the transfer to Chelsea not come off – and is unwilling to do that, thus will forgo a new deal at Atleti and join Chelsea.
In order to make the forward feel more at home, manager Jose Mourinho is willing to bring Tiago and Filipe Luis to the club – both of whom are apparently closing in on switches to West London.
Chelsea fans. Is this the beginning of another failed forward at the club? Should you be looking to a player who actually wants to join the Blues? Let us know your thoughts below.
