Chelsea very close to signing Costa?

This has gone on for weeks and now it seems Chelsea are now ever closer to seal the deal of Costa in the summer. Latest rumour suggest that third parties representing the Premier League leaders have held meetings with representatives of the Atletico Madrid striker and further contact is expected in the next weeks. Costa has emerged as Chelsea’s top centre-forward target following a stellar campaign for Champions League quarter-finalists and La Liga title challengers Atletico. 25-year-old has scored 31 times in 41 matches this season and his 23-goal league haul is second only to Cristiano Ronaldo (26). The fee is reported to be around 36 million (14 million less than Torres).


Arsenal were also reported to be interested in signing Costa but they have dropped their interest, leaving Chelsea the favorites to sign him. As for our 3 strikers, Ba’s representatives have already begun speaking to interested parties, while current first choice Eto’o, 33, is out of contract in the summer. Torres could go back to his old club (If you hadn’t read it, click here). Downside to this deal is that Atletico madrid present has stated that “I do not think Diego Costa is going to leave Atletico next year. We do not want any player to be bargaining chip,” he said earlier this month. So basically, anything could happen in the summer. Our 3 strikers could leave and Costa would be signed or Torres and Ba could leave, Costa will be signed and Eto’o will be given a contract.

    mandzukic costa and lukaku…eto as 4th choice…we can win quadruple

    Costa + Torres + Lukaku will be a great strikeforce next season as Eto’o will probably return to Spain and Ba doesn’t see enough gametime. I think Torres should stay because he has been very important, even though he is not scoring so much anymore.

    Torres needs to leave. He needs a fresh start, and CFC needs a fresh start too. If we can convince Etoó to stay – I would be for it. Costa, Etoó and Lukaku would be very good.

    I think we need to sell Torres – to cash in on him at least a little bit (i don’t think we can get more then 10-15 million euros for him) and to free up his wages. He literally earns an amount Costa would get.
    I wouldn’t mind keeping Torres, he is not good, but always fights, so i respect him. But his wages are just too much. It is an other question, though, who is prepared to pay him. 🙂
