He has had a God awful World Cup and is the most hated man in Brazil but Diego Costa can take comfort from the fact that he is quite popular here in the Football Transfer Tavern after the claim from the Daily Star.
The publication has noted that the Spanish international forward is now willing to admit that a £32 million switch from Atletico Madrid to the Blues is imminent and he will soon be playing for Jose Mourinho and his men.
He claimed: “It is clear that my future at Chelsea is more than Atletico Madrid.”
Costa also made it very clear how much he loves his soon to be former club and his manager, Diego Simeone.
As our Chelsea fans note, they certainly hope Costa is a little bit better for them that he was for La Roja in the World Cup, failing to score or well do anything much at all.
After seeing the likes of Fernando Torres be a total and utter flop, not to mention a rather pricey Andriy Shevchenko before him, Chelsea are desperate not to have any more disasters and for £32 million we don’t blame them!
Chelsea fans. Do you think that Diego Costa can find his goal scoring boots once again when he moves to Chelsea? Let us know your thoughts below.
