Diego Costa snaps at Chelsea transfer talk

Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa has seemingly rubbished reports linking him with a move to Chelsea.

As reported by Spanish newspaper Marca, the Spain international played down speculation that had claimed his transfer to Chelsea was a 'done deal'.

Jose Mourinho had allegedly wrapped up an agreement to bring Costa to Stamford Bridge for a fee in the region of €39m. But when asked about a move to Chelsea, Costa said: "People say silly things."

That would suggest that Chelsea are not as close as reported to sealing a move for Costa, who is widely regarded to be their top summer transfer target.

Costa still has two massive games with Atletico Madrid before the end of the season, with the Madrid-based team in contention for the La Liga title and a first ever Champions League.

Costa will be fit to face Barcelona in what amounts to a title decider at the Nou Camp this Saturday. As the La Liga title is decided on head-to-head records rather than goal difference, the victor this weekend will win the trophy.

A week later, Atletico take on city rivals Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Portugal.

It remains to be seen whether Chelsea wrap up a deal for Costa before the World Cup, but it seems like the Spanish forward is focussing on his football as he heads towards a potentially historic seven days for Atletico Madrid.
