Chelsea have finally got their man according to BBC Sport, who seem to think that the Blues have officially signed Diego Costa from Atletico Madrid.
The forward has been the number one transfer target for Jose Mourinho all summer, and the Chelsea boss has made it very clear just how much the Blues needed a forward after their experience last season – when they could not score for toffee.
Costa has joined from the La Liga champions for around £32 million on a five year contract and claimed he was thrilled to be joining the west London club.
He noted: ‘I am very happy to sign for Chelsea,
‘Everybody knows it is a big club in a very competitive league, and I am very excited to get started in England.’
Chelsea fans will probably be just as excited to land the ‘killer’ forward who could well have made all the difference last season in their title challenge – scoring 36 goals in 52 games during the most successful season in both his and Atleti’s history – and there is no doubt that Costa will be looking to hit the ground running at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea fans. Will this be just another in a long line of overpriced, failed forwards? Let us know your thoughts below or tweet us @LaFootyettes.
