Chelsea Balls: Diego Costa Signs For £128m Plus, Say The Experts
DIEGO COSTA will play for Chelsea next season. Says the Sun in the “exclusive”:
A top Stamford Bridge source confirmed last night: “Diego Costa will be a Chelsea player next season. It’s a done deal.”
He’s joined for £32m?
Or as Goal.com says:
DONE DEAL: Diego Costa agrees to £35m Chelsea move
Costa set for £30million Chelsea move
A site called FootballTalk adds:
Chelsea Agree €91m Deal Following Meeting In London On Thursday
Anyhow, all news sources can all agree that the Blues have the Atletico Madrid man.
Sporting director Jose Luis Caminero told Movistar:
“We have renewed almost everyone, including Diego Costa (on a deal through to 2018). So our mind is set on keeping that block (of players) and slowly bringing some more players in that can go with this project. So we want all our great players, Diego Costa included, to continue here. And next season, at the moment, is planned with him.”
And the Mail:
Diego Costa is not a done deal. Chelsea thought they were close and willing to match a buy-out clause of around £31million but Atletico Madrid are digging in on the back of their success and trying to tempt the player into an improved deal with a bigger clause.
Such are the facts.
