Chelsea Reject £90m Costa Offer From China


Chelsea reportedly rejected a world record offer for Diego Costa which caused the striker’s January dispute with club bosses.

Chinese Super League side Tianjin Quanjin allegedly offered €107million (£90.3million) for Costa’s services last month.

Reports in France from SFR Sport claim that Costa was offered a salary of over £85million in return for a three-year contract.

Spanish talisman Costa was dropped by Chelsea for the trip to Leicester after reports that a mega-money offer was on the table.

Blues bosses, however, insisted that it was down to a minor injury.

Tianjin owner Shu Yuhui confirmed in January that talks had been held between himself and Jorge Mendes, Costa’s agent.
