Diego Costa & Chelsea
On Tuesday, Chelsea fans were lead to believe that Diego Costa could soon return to the Blues.
Everyone is fully aware of the breakdown between the Spanish international striker and the reigning Premier League champs.
At the start of the summer, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte told Costa via a text message that he’s no longer in his plans.
Diego Costa made it clear he wanted to return to Atletico Madrid, but that deal never came to pass.
Over the past few days, rumours have swirled about that Costa may be on his way back to London.
The 28-year-old has been in Brazil all summer as his contract situation played out.
Yet, on Thursday, rather than rejoining Chelsea, Costa is tipped to move to Besiktas.
Diego Costa to Bestikas
The Diego Costa to Bestikas story is originally sourced from Spanish news outlet OKDiario.
It’s worth stating that OKDiario have a mixed record when it comes to getting transfer rumours correct.
Moreover, the claims Bestikas could land Chelsea’s Costa have been doing the rounds for months without any progress being made.
Yet, Football London are now reporting the following:
According to reports emerging from Spain, the frontman could be set to complete a loan move to Super Lig side Besiktas until January.
Given that the transfer window in Turkey doesn’t officially close until Friday, Spanish outlet OKDiario claim that the Turkish club have already held talks with the Premier League champions over a temporary move for Costa.
Chelsea move Costa’s car
Also on Thursday, the Sun have an update on Diego Costa’s car.
In another sign of the tension between the Spanish international striker and the Blues, Costa’s car has been moved in the Chelsea car park:
Chelsea have delivered a fresh snub to Diego Costa by ordering his top of the range motor to be dumped in a youth team bay at the club’s training ground.
