We think there could be a particularly interesting beginning to the summer in terms of transfer business.
Although the window is barely open top clubs all over the world will want to get the job done before the World Cup.
Once it starts players will be more difficult to negotiate with and values can rise overnight with one decent performance in front of the world’s cameras.
Chelsea will be no different and recent reports suggested they are in negotiations with Atletico Madrid over the much muted transfer of Diego Costa.
You have to say that he’s been one of the best players and strikers in the world this season. He has lead the line brilliantly for Atletico this season at home and in Europe.
He’s strong and competitive and gets physical with opponents when he needs be. He’s also got super feet and general game intelligence. Add to that is finishing ability which ranks amongst the best strikers playing the game today and you have got a really special football talent on your hands.
We think that Chelsea could well have this one in the bag before the World Cup.
Chelsea fans – is this the best guy to put the ball in the net for The Blues next season?
