Spain international striker Diego Costa has agreed a pre-contract to move to the Chinese Super League, according to reports in the Spanish media.

Cadena Ser show El Larguero report the 28-year-old was spotted having dinner last Friday in London with agent Jorge Mendes and four others, who they claim to be representatives from Tianjin Quanjian.

The deal will reportedly see the former Atletico Madrid striker earn €30m per year and he will link up with former Villarreal striker Alexandre Pato, alongside Belgium international Axel Witsel.

The report concludes Chelsea are aware of the completion of the deal and intend to use a large portion of the €90m from the sale on Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.
