Jose Mourinho is confident that this summer in his roster he will have Atletico Madrid great striker Diego Costa, some Brittish and Spanish media reported.
With a poor perfomance from his striker, Torres, Ba and Eto’o Mourinho looks to bring some new faces in his attack. First on the list is Atletico Madrid powerful striker, Diego Costa.
Chelsea will pay around 50 million pounds for Diego Costa, scorer of 26 goals in 31 Liga games, and he will be earning 185,000 pounds a week, which will make him the highest paid player at Chelsea.
Even the Atletico coach Diego Simeone said today that he doesn’t have nothing against Costa’s departure to Chelsea, and he confirmed that the Blues are main contenders for the 25-year-old striker. For AS, Simeone said : ” “It’s normal that Chelsea are interested in him. They are an economic power, Samuel Eto’o is getting older and Costa can do his work, but right now he’s ours.”
In exchange for Diego Costa, Atletico will probably get Thibaut Courtois on a loan and for the next season, and the Belgian will be able to play against his Chelsea in the Champions League semi-final match.
