Striker expected to
join Jose
Mourinho's side in
£32million deal
Costa reveals he has 'always
wanted to play in the
Premier League'
He scored 36 goals in all
competitions for Atletico
Madrid last season
25 year old has backed
Spain to bounce back from
Holland defeat
Diego Costa says he is signing for
Chelsea because they 'are one of
the greatest clubs in the world'.
The Atletico Madrid striker has
long been expected to join Jose
Mourinho's side in a £32million
deal and the 25-year-old has
revealed the move is close to being
completed.
'Why would I have chosen to play
for Chelsea? It is a thing that is
about to happen,' Costa told
Goal.com . 'Things are going in a
direction and, if they keep going as
they are going, it is the team I will
play for in the next season.
'I've wanted to play in the Premier
League for a while. Chelsea are
one of the greatest clubs of the
world so there are many factors
that make you take a decision like
this.'
Costa, who is currently at the
World Cup with Spain, scored 36
goals in all competitions last
season to help Atletico win La Liga
and reach the Champions League
final. But he admitted it will take
time for him to adapt to English
football.
He said: 'Every year is a different
story, nothing is easy in life. I will
have to work a lot to fit in with the
style of the Premier League.'
Having chosen to play for Spain
over his native Brazil, Costa was
booed by local fans during Spain's
5-1 defeat to Holland but says the
criticism does not affect him.
