Jose interested in signing Diego Costa?


Chelsea might be in the market again if the rumors are to be believed and are linked with the Atletico Madrid forward Diego Costa.

According to Daily Star, Costa is Jose’s number one priority after Costa has scored 19 goals in 19 La Liga appearances. Costa however might not be moving before the summer with Atletico in hunt for the league title at the moment. But Chelsea look like they want to have the deal sealed well before the summer window opens.

Costa has a £32m buy-out clause in his contract and has been in stunning form this season. But the Blues appear to have an advantage with the player represented by Mourinho’s agent Jorge Mendes. – Oliver Kay

Earlier this week, Jose had made it clear that he wants to persist with the strikers he has at his disposal for the rest of the season but the 3 strikers have only scored 8 goals between them this season and this is something that Jose won’t be really pleased about.

Jose will be looking to atleast match the striking options available to the title rivals in City, United, Liverpool or Arsenal who have relied heavily on the strikers to get them out of jail on numerous ocassions this season.

Costa is critical to Atletico and they will make sure they do everything to keep their man. According to Opta: Diego Costa has scored the 1st goal of the game a league-high (6); Alexis Sanchez & Neymar (4) have grabbed it most often for Barca.

How this story pans out will be interesting to see, but Costa at 32 million will be very good value for money that’s for sure.

    Awesome how deadly would costa be for us.If we can get him signed down now next season we will have lukaku, costa and torres and possibly 1 more. That trio would give opposition coaches the biggest of headaches

    Costa=Agero; Matic=Yaya Toure but Jose is z difference! Jose >> Pelegreni! Z blue wl win z title at z end. Go and buy him at any price! Lack of a killer strikers that kill z game timely cost us out of trophies. Plz Jose look z fans disappointment regarding our misfit strikers. If we have striker like Costa z blue can lead with 10 more points by this time and 20 points from Man Unted. I don’t wann to look unhappy face of z ‘happy one’ in this season. Good Luck to blue!!

    This is one of the few attackers that the economy and we all hope that if Mr. “Happy” is determined to bring a new striker to the club in the summer possible that this is one of the first target and I’m personally a favorite among them! When it comes to the player it is the player who is outstanding and the management of the club, the owner should not allow our competitors overtake his transfer

    Its a good move if chelsea can push thru with the move to get diego Costa

  6. Lightning says

    All of his antics would give JT and Cole a run for their money. He’s too unsportsmanlike. He’s really a person who has a trade-off, a goal machine who whose behavior and personality can put the volatile nature of Balotelli to shame.
