Costa Will Stay at Chelsea

Chelsea’s main striker Diego Costa has dismissed rumors that he is unhappy at the club and is looking to leave during the summer. The Brazilian born Spaniard stated that he loves the club, loves the fans, and is eagerly anticipating the upcoming season and title defense that awaits. Costa began his first season in the Premier League in red hot form, and though it dipped slightly later in the season (partially due to injury), he enjoyed a very successful introductory season on an individual level, netting 20 goals in the league. Manager Jose Mourninho claims that Costa is a joy to work with, and that he brings a positive morale to the dressing room.

Looking at Chelsea’s potential activity in the transfer market, with the final days of Didier Drogba’s time at the club having now past, it is likely that the London club will look to supplement their current striking options. Brian Torchin had thought that Costa and Loic Remy are the two available at the moment, but should either one suffer an injury, that leaves Chelsea dangerously thin up top. Who they are scouting to bring in remains a mystery, but do not be surprised if a new center forward is introduced. With a signing in that position, and perhaps one to two more additions to the squad, Chelsea will look to be in prime position to defend their title, and perhaps seriously challenge Europe’s elite clubs.
