Chelsea transfer roundup: Diego Costa doesn't want move

Published 9 Comments

Chelsea fans might be largely optimistic following Jose Mourinho’s positive activity in the transfer market so far this summer, but they’ll certainly be less than happy with reports claiming that Stamford Bridge-bound striker Diego Costa didn’t actually want to move to west London.

The Daily Star carries a story which suggests the Spain international was forced into a move to the Blues, as a previous agreement sorted out by his agent Jorge Mendes included a penalty clause of several million euros that he would have to pay should the deal not go through. In essence this means that Costa had no choice but to consent to a transfer, despite the fact he wanted to remain with Atletico.

In other Chelsea news Mourinho could be offered the services of Sami Khedira and Isco in return for letting Real Madrid have Ramires. It’s claimed the Portuguese boss doesn’t want to let his Brazilian midfielder go, but could be tempted as Madrid prepare a two-player swap deal.
