Chelsea fans feel like they are one step closer to getting their main man here in the Football Transfer Tavern after the latest claim from The Guardian.
The publication report that Diego Costa has passed a medical at the West London club ahead of his proposed move to Chelsea from La Liga victors Atletico Madrid.
Costa has long been a target for the Blues and their manager Jose Mourinho and we think that they have done well to swoop for the coveted player and get a deal in the bag – not to mention concluding his future before the World Cup starts this summer.
The deal will be worth around £32 million and that money is something that Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone is keen to reinvest into his side.
For once the Argentine tactician will be given money to spend and the La Liga club are keen to make sure they build on the success of the season just gone, continuing to not sell their star players each season, fading into obscurity in the process.
Chelsea fans. Do you think that Costa is the answer to all your troubles up top? Let us know your thoughts below.
