Shakhtar star begging to join Chelsea

Published Add your comment

First he said it would be a dream to play for Chelsea, then he admitted Jose Mourinho was the pivotal factor in his decision to push for a move, now Brazilian forward Douglas Costa is pleading with Shakhtar Donetsk not to scupper his transfer to Stamford Bridge. Reports today carry quotes from the player confirming that he has asked his current club to aid him in his bid for a move to England, with Shakhtar apparently having told him they will do their best. The initial fear was that the Ukrainian giants would demand £30 million for Costa’s signature, despite the fact that the Blues value him at far less than that. That scenario could serve as a boost for Mourinho’s transfer plans. A possible alternative to Costa is of course Juan Cuadrado. Yesterday it was claimed Fiorentina will consent to his cut-price sale if they can get Mohamed Salah in return, but things are likely to develop today.
