Slowly but surely, Diego Costa is edging his way toward Chelsea with today’s update being the confirmation that the Blues have officially met the Spazilian striker’s €40million (approx. £32million) buy-out clause at Atletico Madrid.

A statement on the official Chelsea site reads thus:

“COSTA AGREEMENT REACHED: Chelsea…can confirm an agreement has been reached with Atletico Madrid for the transfer of Diego Costa, with Chelsea meeting the buy-out clause for the Spanish international.”

Maybe we’re just tainted cynics, but does anyone else have the sneaking feeling that Costa is going to be an immense let-down at Stamford Bridge?

He’s got “one-season wonder” written all over him.

    Between him and Torres, opposing defenders may be excused from training before facing Chelsea

    Don’t see how he’s any better than what we have already. Many more options available that would be a better fit. Mandzukic, to name but one.
