The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are feeling pretty divided this evening…
According to reports from the Telegraph, Chinese out Tianjin are confident of securing a deal for the striker this summer, leaving the fans in the pub unsure what to think.
Of course, Diego Costa has been a star for Chelsea since he joined the club. He has scored 19 goals in the Premier League this year alone, and whilst the Blues will, of course, need to replace him, the reported £76 million transfer fee will allow them to do just that.
On the flip side, anger issues have always affected the Spaniard – and our landlord is of the opinion that given the context, it might be time for the Blues to sell up.
It is a matter that those in the pub cannot agree on, but it is a different story on Twitter. Indeed, for the most part, the fans online are convinced that selling Costa is the right move – with many even celebrating the seemingly impending deal…

Go for it. 80m will do.

It's the right time to sell Costa. Question is Morata or Lukaku as his replacement. My choice is Morata. Cheaper option too I guess.

Hopefully @ChelseaFC can use the money we get for Costa and buy a world class striker
