Chelsea have agreed in principle a £32m deal for Atletico Madrid forward Diego Costa, reports the Sun.
It’s public knowledge that the Blues have been targeting a top notch striker, and it appears that they’ve managed to secure a deal for their first choice option.
Costa, 25, has been sensational for Atletico in both La Liga and the Champions League, notching 36 in all competitions.
A report by Goal claims the forward will sign a five year, £150,000 per week contract, which will triple his current wages at Estadio Vicente Calderon.
Chelsea crashed out of the Champions League on Wednesday evening, partly thanks to a Costa penalty – meaning Jose Mourinho’s boys need Manchester City or Liverpool to slip up if they are to finish the season with any silverware.
Costa though stayed in London to thrash out a deal, and is now expected to lead the line at Stamford Bridge ahead of next season.
Their misfiring strike force is one of the reasons for this, and the seemingly imminent arrival of Costa will no doubt leave fans excited for next season.
