It appears Diego Costa will grace the Premier League this season, after Atletico Madrid accepted a £32m bid from Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea.
The highly rated striker will give Jose Mourinho the world class striker he has craved so badly this season.
The timing is a little strange with Atletico due to play in the Champions League final a week after their title decider against Barcelona.
Diego Costa was trending on Twitter and we collated some of the best tweets for you lucky readers.

Costa to CFC: - They'll love him - Everyone else will hate - So then they'll love him more - So then everyone else will hate him more

Diego Costa will give Suárez a run for his money as the most hated in the Premier League. Heh.

Costa’s attitude and commitment to his team’s cause is faultless. He'll cover every blade of grass ten times over, bullying defenders.

Diego Costa's move being made public while his club is on the verge of most historic week in its history. Ridiculous.

£32M is Costa's buyout clause which means NO inclusion of Thibaut Courtois in the deal, in trying to stay calm. (And failing.)

Not even bothered about Costa's transfer. Chelsea destroys strikers. He'll score 9 goals next season playing Mourinho's defensive football.

The media/FA are going to hate us even more with Diego Costa… I cannot wait.

£32m for Costa is a bargain on form of last two years. But, as with Falcao, one slight caveat: that explosion kind of came from nowhere.
