Besiktas fans break social media records urging Chelsea star Diego Costa to sign

Besiktas fans are urging Chelsea striker Diego Costa to make the move to Turkey.

The Mirror says Costa has become the subject of a bizarre social media trend in the past three days, with a simple Instagram post featuring him and his friend Petros Araujo attracting a record amount of comments - almost all of which are urging him to join Besiktas.

The snap with Petros - a Brazilian midfielder who joined Sao Paulo from Real Betis last month - has attracted an incredible 1.7 million comments as of Saturday morning, with the vast majority of them simply featuring the words "Come to Besiktas."

By way of comparison, the most commented on Instagram post of 2016 - an August snap from actress and singer Selena Gomez - attracted 1.1 million comments.
