Mourinho provides update on likely January signing.
Jose Mourinho may have strongly hinted that Chelsea are chasing a deal to sign Shakhtar Donetsk star Douglas Costa after his latest quotes on the player, according to Goal.com.
The Brazilian winger has emerged as a top target for the Blues in the last few days, with Juan Cuadrado another player on the club’s radar as they look to offload Andre Schurrle and Mohamed Salah in that part of the pitch.
Costa himself has said it would be a dream to play for Chelsea, and Mourinho has responded positively to these quotes.
“I am always happy when a player tells us that he would like to play for my club,” he said.
“I am always happy so the reaction for Douglas Costa is the reaction of being happy with his comments and every Douglas Costa in the world that would like to play for Chelsea … these kind of feelings are always welcome.”
