There has been some reports which have claimed Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho wants to sign up Diego Costa from Atletico Madrid.
Speculation that Chelsea had all but sealed a move for Costa in the summer got a further boost yesterday when the Brazilian-born striker smiled and waved as Blues fans chanted ‘We’ll see you next year’ after the first leg of the clubs’ Champions League semi-final.
However, reports on the Daily Express website claim that a deal is not done and Mourinho may not get the man he wants.
And after British journalist Henry Winter mentioned the chants on Twitter, the Spanish correspondent for Italian daily Gazzetta dell Sport Filippo Ricci felt compelled to downplay Costa’s response.
He said: “He’s a polite guy. Doesn’t understand a word of the chant…”
