Diego Costa is set to sign for Liverpool today in a sensational cut price deal, despite making few friends on Merseyside so far this season it appears that the Chelsea striker just had to play for a team and set of fans as warm as those in Liverpool.
After failing to impress at Stamford Bridge due to his lack of goals, meek attitude to training and shying away from confrontation his time in London seems over. Chelsea are believed to be looking to cash in and get as much of their investment back as possible.
At the moment it seems likely that the fee will be £10m plus a further £5m if Costa develops a scouse accent during his time at Anfield. This standard clause represents a loss to the London club who have been distraught with Costa and desperately miss former blue Fernando Torres.
Costa will likely receive a wage of around £72.40 p/w in line with the rest of the Liverpool squad over the age of 25.
The move may have taken a few by surprise but Costa has come out and said how much he admires Liverpool Football Club and wants to play at a club that challenges for the Premier League title around once per decade.
Costa will be excited to link up with best friend Martin Skrtel and analysts believe that a move to the North will toughen him up both on and off the pitch. An unnamed reporter said
“This move makes sense for everyone and his national team coach will be delighted, now he will have to fight to survive on and off the pitch, this should see this wallflower come out of his shell for a team that can totes win the league.”
This move may be a shock to Chelsea fans, but it appears that the Brazilian is on his way to Anfield
