Reason why Diego Costa could stay at Chelsea

Chelsea are reportedly not ready to be bullied into selling Diego Costa on the cheap this summer, with the Blues standing firm on a £60million transfer fee for the striker.

Even the most hardened transfer gossip gurus have yet to link Costa with a move to the Turkish side - with a move to the player's former club Atletico Madrid more likely to happen.

Costa's time at Chelsea has been a roller coaster of a ride, filled with unprecedented highs and disappointing lows.

Journalist Fırat Günayer claimed that the Eagles were interested in nabbing the Spanish global, who was dumped by Coach Antonio Conte via Whatsapp at the end of last season.

Chelsea have switched their focus from sealing a Stamford Bridge return for Romelu Lukaku, to weighing up other possible options to fill the void in the striker role.

Will he? Won't he?

Even if they sign Costa this summer, he can not play for them until January because they can not register players due to a Federation Internationale de Football Association ban.

Costa is set to rejoin Atletico Madrid - and then be loaned out until January - but the value of his deal has been drastically reduced after the public row and Chelsea's position in the market has been weakened.

The Premier League champions start pre-season on Monday and the deal could happen as fast as this week as Chelsea gaffer Antonio Conte would like Costa to be gone by then.

Atletico sold Costa to Chelsea three years ago for £32m.
