Chelsea plotting to off-load Costa to China in big money move?


  • The Chinese Super League has already attracted a number of top class European stars in January and the summer transfer window is also expected to see a number of big names head to Asia.

    The likes of Ramires, Alex Teixeira, Jackson Martinez, Lavezzi, and Paulinho are already plying their trade in the Super League and a number of big names are linked with a potential move there this summer.

    One of the many Premier League clubs that will be busy this summer, Chelsea are set to lose star striker Diego Costa after it was revealed that the 27-year old wants to move away from the club.

    Antonio Conte was revealed as the new manager to take over the Stamford Bridge outlet this summer but this has not stopped Costa who wants a way out of the club.

    Spanish giants Atletico Madrid who sold Costa to Chelsea are keen on signing him back after the end of the season but the potential asking fee that the English franchise might demand is understood to be scaring them away.

    French outfit Paris Saint-Germain has also been linked with the striker but it is now revealed that a club from the Chinese Super League is ready to meet Chelsea’s valuation of the 27-year old.

    Costa earns £185,000-a-week and it is understood that the Asian franchise is ready to double the wages of the striker who will cost them over £70 million according to the Telegraph

    Costa’s agent has already developed his business in the Chinese Super League and it will not be long before the Asian outfit can get their hands on the Chelsea striker.

    However, Atletico Madrid will remain the first choice for Diego Costa who would love to be a part of the Champions League every season.

    However, the future of the player is still unsure and the incoming manager Antonio Conte is set to schedule talks with want-away players before he moves to the clubs this summer.

    The outcome of the conversation between Conte and Costa might reveal where the 27-year old will play but if he does move to China in a £70 million deal, Conte will surely get his hands on his top transfer targets.

    Do you think Chelsea should push Costa to China this summer?
