Numerous media outlets are claiming that an agreement has been made between Atletico Madrid and Chelsea over the sale of Diego Costa. The reported fee is 32 million.

This should come as no shock to Chelsea fans, as Mourinho suggested the need for a major splash in the summer. Proof of that is potentially signing Diego Costa from Athletico Madrid. As Chelsea are in need of a striker, due to the current strike force failing to make a major impact.With Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto'o, and Demba Ba scoring 19 goals all together. This was one of the main reasons why Chelsea finished 3rd in the Premier League, and possibly why Chelsea did not win any silverware this season.

It should be noted that Diego Costa, a striker, scored 35 goals for Athletico Madrid this season. Helping them to first place in the league, and also to the Champions League Final.
