There is some brilliant news for Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro claim that Diego Costa has talked up his move to the Blues.
The Atletico Madrid forward has been heavily linked with a transfer to Jose Mourinho’s side this summer and in between a difficult time for him in Brazil, the now Spanish international forward took some time out to claim that he is looking forward to life in the Premier League.
Costa spoke after the Spanish thrashing at the hands of the Netherlands and noted: “Things are going in a direction and, if they keep going as they are going, it is the team I will play for in the next season.
“I’ve wanted to play in the Premier League for a while. Chelsea are one of the greatest clubs of the world so there are many factors that make you take a decision like this.”
The Brazilian turned naturalised Spanish international netted 36 goals last season for Diego Simeone’s Los Colchoneros outfit and was a vital part of the club winning the La Liga title and indeed getting to the Champions League Final to boot.
