Chelsea to launch staggering £40m Diego Costa bid

Published 2 Comments

Chelsea will make a £40million bid for Atletico Madrid forward Diego Costa in order to tempt the superstar to Stamford Bridge.

The Blues are said to be stepping up their interest in the highly-rated forward as Jose Mourinho is desperately trying to bring a world-class striker to west London.

And Mourinho has reportedly identified Costa as the best candidate to fill the void left by the legendary Didier Drogba.

The likes of Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba have all been handed the chance to step up to the plate - but have been unable to do the business on a regular basis.

Costa, on the other hand, has scored 23 goals in 27 games for current side Atletico Madrid.

The Daily Mail suggests representatives of Chelsea will be at the Vicente Calderon later tonight to again cast their eyes over Costa.

Chelsea may have to reluctantly use goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois or former Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres as a bargaining tool to bring the 25-year-old to the Premier League.
