Costa has Chelsea agreement – report

Diego Costa has reached a ‘verbal agreement’ with Chelsea and may move to the Premier League in the summer, reports claim.

Agent Francois Gallardo, who is not affiliated with the Atletico Madrid striker, has insisted that the capital club are resigned to the fact that the forward will leave in the summer.

“Atetico know it is impossible to hold on to Costa,” he told La Sexta.

And the broadcaster, as well as British newspaper Metro, believe that Stamford Bridge will be the Brazilian attacker’s destination of choice, with Jose Mourinho's men willing to table his €32m release clause.
