Atletico Madrid would be willing to let Diego Costa join Chelsea in the summer in a swap deal involving goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois
The Brazilian-born Spanish international striker is the number one summer target for Blues boss Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese boss has made signing a World Class forward his summer priority and has also been linked with Radamel Falcao at Monaco.
However, Costa remains the number one choice and the Blues prepared to go all out for the Atletico forward.
Atletico remain hopeful of keeping hold of their 28-goal striker as they challenge the big two in La Liga. However, a source close to Atletico told FDN that the club’s hierarchy would be prepared to listen to a Blues offer if they were to incentivise it with the option of taking Courtois on a permanent deal.
The Belgian stopper has spent the last three seasons in Spain on loan from Stamford Bridge and has established himself as one of the top keepers in world football. (SportsDirectNews)
