Chelsea discussing Diego Costa deal to the value of £40M

Chelsea are growing increasingly confident of landing Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa at the end of this season. The Daily Mail says Chelsea are in pole position to sign Diego Costa in a staggering £40million deal this summer.

Negotiations will be complex and delicate because Atletico want to complete the permanent signing of keeper Thibaut Courtois, who is on loan from Stamford Bridge.

Courtois is part of the succession planning at Chelsea for Petr Cech and Mourinho is unlikely to sanction his sale.

Although an emotional return to Atletico could appeal to Fernando Torres, the Spanish side prefer to sign young players with huge sell-on fees.
