Chelsea confident closing £35M Diego Costa deal before World Cup

Chelsea aim to wrap up a deal for Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa before the World Cup. The Daily Mail says Chelsea are confident of announcing the £35million signing of Diego Costa before the World Cup starts.

Jose Mourinho's move for the Spain international is virtually complete, but has been held up by the striker's hamstring injury.

Personal terms with Costa have already been agreed, but his hamstring complaint has delayed the player's Stamford Bridge medical.

But he has returned to training ahead of Spain's attempts to retain the World Cup in Brazil and Chelsea will now press ahead with plans to complete the mega deal.
