Diego Costa has admitted that he could end up at Chelsea this summer, confirming what is an open secret – that he is set to move to Stamford Bridge.

The Atletico Madrid striker has already passed a medical with Chelsea, who have activated his buy-out clause of €38m at the Spanish champions.

Chelsea have expressed their unhappiness at the speed with which Atletico Madrid are processing the deal, with the Blues hoping to have confirmation before the World Cup.

And now Costa has for the first time admitted that he is likely to be playing his football at Stamford Bridge next season.


"Will I go to Chelsea? Yes, it could happen", Costa explained to Spanish broadcaster COPE.

The striker powered Atletico Madrid to the title in the recently concluded season and also helped Los Rojiblancos to reach the Champions League final.

Now he is set to answer Jose Mourinho's striking SOS.
