Chelsea Striker Diego Costa On Barcelona Radar
It has been reported that Chelsea striker Diego Costa is a target for Barcelona.
The Independent claims that Barcelona will attempt to capitalise on the player’s relationship breakdown with the Stamford Bridge hierarchy and swoop for him in the summer.
The all-action forward is seen as a possible long-term replacement for former Liverpool hero Luis Suarez who turns 30 on January 24.
And word from the Nou Camp has reached Costa’s people that a deal could be done.
Atletico Madrid are also waiting in the wings to welcome their old hero home and they will have cash on the hip if they successfully winkle £100million out of Manchester United for France star Antoine Griezmann.
On New Year’s Day, Costa said: “I had the possibility to go to Atletico, because of a few things, the family, the life I have there but not because of Chelsea, because, here, there’s a lot of love with the supporters, with the people, so I’m here very happy.”
