Chelsea finally sign Diego Costa in £32million transfer

They have been chasing him for
months, and now Chelsea have
apparently got their man after
finally agreeing to sign Diego Costa
from Atletico Madrid.
Costa, who scored against in the
Blues in the Champions League this
week, is Jose Mourinho’s number one
transfer target – and it appears he’s
landed him early.
According to reports in Spain,
Chelsea have wrapped up the
transfer after agreeing to meet the
striker’s £32million buyout clause.
Costa has also accepted personal
terms on a five-year contract, with
the move set to be formally
announced at the end of the season.
The 25-year-old told reporters
yesterday that he was aware of offers
from other clubs, before going coy
when asked if he was west London-
Costa will reportedly pocket about
£200,000-a-week at Stamford Bridge,
while Chelsea will hope to offset
some of that expenditure by clearing
out forwards such as Fernando
Torres and Samuel Eto’o, both of
whom are high earners.
