Transfer: Chelsea in Talks With Tianjin Quanjian Over Diego Costa

Tianjin Quanjian are hoping to sign Diego Costa from Chelsea, when the Chinese transfer window re-opens on June 19, according to Sky sources.

The Chinese Super League club tried to sign striker during January window, but a move did not materialise.

However, their owner, Shu Yuhui has confirmed that talks to take Costa to China are still continuing.

Tianjin are reportedly ready to make Costa the best-paid player in the world, with a contract worth £650,000 a week after tax.

Costa’s £150,000-a-week Chelsea contract runs out in the summer of 2019.

The 28-year-old has suffered a dip in 2017, scoring only three goals, but still have 17 Premier League goals this season.

Tianjin are seventh in the Chinese Super League table after five games.
