What's annoying is that we'd be weakening ourselves whilst strenthening two clubs at the same time. Atelti get a world class striker for way less than he's worth, United eventually get Griezmann, and we're arguably settling for a downgrade depending on who we sign as our new #9.

Everything anybody needs to know about Costa ^^

Using this to once again post the footballing brain that is His Highness Didi Hamann's pronouncements back in August : "Costa is overrated. He had a couple of good years for Atlético Madrid, but his

If we sell Diego Costa for £22m or similar and buy Lukaku for £89m or similar Chelsea are a joke

There were suggestions in Spain on Wednesday night that Costa was only “hours” away from being confirmed as an Atlético player, although those are understood to be optimistic with no fee has, as yet, having been agreed by the clubs.

The 28-year-old’s insistence he would only leave London to return to Madrid has damaged Chelsea’s hopes of raising the £76m first mentioned when interest was expressed by Chinese Super League clubs back in January. Their asking price is likely to be nearer £40m this time around and, should Atlético offer that much, a deal will be concluded swiftly. If, however, the Spanish club propose an initial fee closer to £22m plus add-ons, an arrangement that has been mooted, then negotiations could prove significantly more protracted and force Costa to return to Surrey to begin fitness work under Conte with his club-mates.

22 million. What an utter, utter joke. Chelsea are making a fool out of themselves. AGAIN.

Chinese club has backed off, since his comment that he will only play for Chelsea or Atletico.

As long as we go all out and splurge on multiple forwards everyone will quickly forget about Diego and whatever low fee we get for him. Just sort it out quickly, ffs.

To think we could have sold him to the chinese for god knows how much.

Atletico are really taking the piss offering such a low amount, and we will be taking the piss if we accept it.

But that would have been in the middle of a season where we were leading the league without another striker in the team (Conte didn't play Bats at all). Don't think we'd have liked that one bit, especiall if we had messed up the league.

I think it is more because the new rule in China. The need to pay something like double to sign player from overseas.

We don't hold any of the aces in this transfer. Said player wants out, and if you believe reports the manager wants him out, the team wanting him know this and are offering minuscule cash.

I'm fucking tired of this whole shit Costa affair TBH.
