Diego Costa: Heading for Chelsea

The Brazilian-born Spanish international is set to seal a move to Stamford Bridge, after Chelsea agreed to meet his buy-out of over £30million.

Costa is understood to have already passed his medical, and Sky Sports understands that a deal could be concluded by Tuesday - before the World Cup finals kick off.

Costa has now admitted that he is heading for West London, and spoke after Spain's 2-0 friendly win over El Salvador.

Asked if he was heading to Chelsea, he told Cadena Cope: "Well, it looks like that."

Costa has overcome injury concerns to make the World Cup squad and insists he is fully fit.

"The injury was there and there was a doubt, but I am in good shape now," he said.

Costa is heading to his homeland, having switched international allegiance to Spain, having played in two friendlies for Brazil - and he admits he is unsure of what the reaction will be.

"It will all depend on how people have interpreted things, but I am very happy and I will see when we get there what the reception will be," he added. "But either way I am happy to be at a World Cup with Spain."

Sounds thoroughly underwhelmed to me. Don't blame him.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
