The Blues striker insists he’s happy at Stamford Bridge despite links to big money in China
Diego Costa is adamant he is happy at Chelsea and that there is only one club he would leave for.
The Stamford Bridge striker, who scored in their 2-1 FA Cup final defeat on Saturday, has been linked with big money deals with the the Chinese Super League.
Tianjin Quanjian have been forced to deny their links to mega bucks offers to the Blues for their highly valued marksman.
And the Brazilian-born Spanish international has insisted there is only one way he would leave west London.
“I will only leave Chelsea for Atletico,” he reportedly told Spanish journalists after the FA Cup final on Saturday.
“If not, I will stay here. I’m not interested in other clubs.”
The comment could be encouraging to Costa’s former club Atletico, who could see an offer too good to refuse to come in for Antoine Griezmann.
Should they lose their star man, who has an £85m buyout clause, they will be in the market for another big name.
The club has form in welcoming back a former star from Chelsea, with former trainee Fernando Torres going on loan there while at the Blues before returning for good in August 2015.
