Chelsea transfers: Blues’ interest in Diego Costa no surprise – Simeone
Chelsea transfers: Diego Simeone would not be surprised if the Blues try and sign Diego Costa this summer
Diego Simeone admits that he would not be surprised if Chelsea try and sign Diego Costa from Atletico Madrid this summer.
The Blues have been heavily linked with a big-money swoop for the 25-year-old striker, with some reports claiming that the west London club have already all but sealed a £50m deal for the forward.
And Simeone did little to cool the speculation about Costa’s future on the eve of his side’s Champions League semi-final first leg against Jose Mourinho’s men.
Simeone said: “It would not surprise me at all if a club that is economically powerful, as Chelsea are, would try to sign Costa.
“Why? Because he is different, a very good player.”
Costa has scored 26 goals and made three assists in 31 La Liga games for Atletico Madrid this season.
