Diego Costa will join Chelsea as their highest paid

Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa will go to Chelsea in the summer as the club's highest paid player. The Telegraph says Diego Costa's move from Atletico to Chelsea is close to agreement, with the Blues ready to make him the club's joint highest-paid player on £185,000-a-week.

Diego Costa has no problem with the expectation this season's goals have placed on his shoulders and believes it brings out the best in him.

"I believe it's very different if you're playing for a big team as opposed to a small team," he said. "In big teams you get more chances and the confidence the team, and the coach, has in me gives me a lot as well. People watch you, look at you and tell you that they need you. That kind of responsibility is good for me, it makes me feel comfortable."
