Rumor: Have Blues reached 'verbal agreement' for Costa?

Is a verbal agreement been reached between Chelsea and Atletico? Only time will tell about this move happening but, Jose is need of a top striker this summer!

According to several sources, Chelsea have reached a ‘verbal agreement’ with Atletico Madrid for the transfer of Diego Costa. The Brazilian born Spanish international might become a Chelsea player this upcoming summer as the Blues agree to pay his 32m pound release clause.

CHELSEA have reached a ‘verbal agreement’ over the purchase of Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa that will see them beat Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United to the player in the summer.-Express

Exuberant agent Francois Gallardo, who has a reputation for making controversial claims about transfers, insists Atletico eventually succumbed after accepting that they would not be able to hold onto the Brazilian-born Spanish international.

He told La Sexta: “Atletico knows it is impossible to hold onto him.”

Gallardo is just the latest source to claim that Costa to Chelsea will happen in the summer, while Atletico coach Diego Simeone has admitted no player is indispensable.

Let us know what you think about this move if it does go through.

    That would be wonderful if costa can join Chelsea,we will win things.
    Costa,ballotelli,torres and eto’o next season will instil fear in the hearts of city and co in the top 4.
    Someone tell Oscar to be more of a team player please and give the ball to eto’o more.We need zouma,shar and shaw in our team.terry,cole and lampard can stay one more season as back up from the bench as senior legends to motivate the new chelsea look while ivanovic,ramires,matic,mikel,torres and luiz will teach the new boys our history.go blues.

    Costa suits our style down to the ground anyone else doesn’t really suit how we play. He’s strong/ good in air/ reasonably two footed etc. I would also like to see us go for Bony as well due to his ability to turn and shoot accurately from reasonable distance. In the perfect world I would like to have this front personnel next season Costa-Bony-Lukaku-Torres.
    However, the majority of clubs and seasons Mourinho as a general rule will only have 3 strikers so therefore like we have recently experienced football is harsh sometimes and you have to be harsh to progress. So therefore (sentimental feelings aside) Wouldn’t mind seeing Torres go in the other direction for Costa. So therefore next seaon Costa-Bony-Lukaku.
    In reality it will probs be Costa-Lukaku-Torres.

    If Blue buy Coast, Torres and Eto next season for sure wl change like Ibrahimovich’s change following Cavani arrival. Blue wl have feared killer strikers. Z best of Torres wl come!
