Chelsea in advanced talks with €45m-rated Premier League star
Blues desperate to sign Juventus attacker Douglas Costa and ready to compete with Man United for the footballer. Chelsea have problems in the front-line and new high-class winger is necessary. Brazil international is the perfect option in this situation as he has an excellent campaign and proved his greatness one more time. Maurizio will do everything to add him during the summer transfer window. Red Devils also keen to sign him and there will be a real battle for the player. His price could increase and become much more.
Costa joined the Old Lady from Bayern Munich last summer with a €40m deal. He became an unchanged figure for the club and played many matches amazingly since joining. In this season, Douglas already made 24 appearances, scored one goal and made 2 assists in all competition. This is a good result and he can do much more during this campaign. Brazilian forward is contracted with the Bianconeri until 2022 and his release clause is around €50m.
He is a regular member of the national team and also helped them to reach the quarterfinals in the 2018 Mundial but after losing 2-1 against Belgium they kicked out from the tournament. Chelsea set to pay big money for the footballer as Willian and Pedro already up to 30 and their replacement is necessary. Eden Hazard also linked with Real Madrid and Sarri wants to sign his back-up during the summer transfer window. London club already added Borussia Dortmund winger Christian Pulisic this January but he will join the Blues this summer.
