Pato hinted Costa is heading to China in the summer £80m for 28 year old would be stupid to turn down

Its the most known "secret" in football right now. He would have been gone right after Oscar if we let him. His heart is in China right now.

The noises from Lukaku and now the noises from Costa sound like this may just end up the case where the pieces come together. Of course anything can happen, but I just see Lukaku as the perfect man to move his game forward under Conte, be the loan striker that we need(if that's the plan) and produce great things here. The amounts spoke about for Lukaku are huge, 40-60M upwards depending on where you read but the market is mental we all know that, but the other way the money is huge in China, we get that amount for Costa then we have to pay the asking price for Lukaku if we truly want him.

Or Conte goes for Fernando Llorente because he happens to know him from Juventus... 4 years ago.

Only 4 strikers have scored more open-play goals than Llorente this season (Lukaku, Kane, Costa, Ibra.) Not bad company. Hindsight makes the outrage of being interested in him laughable. He's been a top player from day 1; Sevilla is actually the only place he couldn't show that, just like Cuadrado only failed here, and succeeded everywhere else. From Athletic Bilbao to Juve to Swansea, his goals-per-game ratio has actually become even better each time. Getting more clinical with age.

There is no player who'd be better for us coming off the bench, if he'd be happy with that.

Its sad, but I'm beginning to think he's going. He already attempted to leave in the summer but we didn't let him now China has the money, something fishy happened in january with the China rumors, it seems inevitable. 

I hope we get mbappe to replace him. But I'll not be against getting lukaku back. He already loves the club, maybe his passion will improve his performance.

He is 32.

His head is not with Chelsea anymore. Until those "China rumours" he was as sharpest as I have ever seen him :) But since than he is arguing too much and not focusing on football ... sell him to China and bring Belotti/Lukaku :)

If we can replace him with Sanchez that would be good. 

Since he wants to leave China we can get some good money and use that to get Sanchez. 

Sanchez would be for the RW. Not good enough to be our #9. Skill set wise anyway

And Ibra's 35. Is he too old to be coming off our bench?

Yep, kind of slow from the bench to the pitch, it takes a bewildering amount of effort thats why Ibra starts directly games, but I think its unfair to compare with Ibra, a one of a kind.

Where are those Diego defenders now? Idiots.

Knew he was suspect, that's why he scored only 4 goals in 2017. He's not a Chelsea man anymore. Time to go, Costa. Chelsea will live on without you.

I would take him for a role on the bench I remember teddy Sheringham use do a great job for utd coming off the bench when he was in his 30+ Llorente could do the same job as Sheringham
