Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is confident Diego Costa’s transfer to Stamford Bridge will be completed soon.
The Atletico Madrid striker is widely tipped to make the move to London, in a reported £32 million switch.
The striker has already had a medical with the Premier League side and Mourinho is confident Costa will be on the books of the west London club ahead of the new Premier League season.
“Costa is a player who I want to have in my team,” he is quoted as saying on the Sky Sports website.
“I’ve asked my club for him and I have total confidence that we’re going to achieve it and he will end up signing for Chelsea.”
