ESPN have today reported that Diego Costa is ‘unsettled & frustrated’ at Chelsea.
The news outlet haven’t revealed who their source is, however they’ve written the following on their website:
Diego Costa is considering a summer move away from Chelsea, with his former club Atletico Madrid ready to offer him a deal, sources have told ESPN FC.
A source close to the player has told ESPN FC that he has struggled to settle in London and is frustrated by Chelsea being linked with new strikers in the summer.
Is the source some ITK on Twitter, or someone who actually knows what they are talking about?
You’d like to think ESPN indeed have good information, however it’s hard to know.
The comment about ‘new strikers’ is particularly interesting.
Costa is currently the only option in attack at Stamford Bridge, and 1) you’d have thought Costa would appreciate another top forward coming in and playing alongside, while 2) didn’t Costa realise Chelsea would try signing a new forward this summer?
