According to reports, Chelsea have started negotiations with Atletico over Diego Costa, have cooled their interest in Romelu Lukaku and have made an approach for Robert Lewandowski.

Let me start by saying that this is all I have to say about the Diego Costa situation. It's clear he has been told by the manager that he is not part of his plans and will never play for Chelsea again. If we can get a deal done for £50m then that's excellent news no matter where he goes.

As for Romelu Lukaku? Well this week was supposed to be the week that he re-signed for Chelsea but news of an approach for Lewandowski has put any deal into doubt with Alvaro Morata also pushing for a move to work with Conte.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Lukaku deal is still completed this week or even next as it seems that everything has been agreed in principle. We just need to get the deal signed on the dotted line to put an end to months of speculation. You would have to imagine that the Belgian striker would demand assurances that he would come here as number one however.

So what of our link to Robert Lewandowski? At first I thought it was rubbish and just an attempt by his agent to try and get more money out of the German club. Then I read that he is unsettled and has fallen out with the club because he felt that they did nothing to help him become the Bundesliga top scorer at the end of the season. He feels betrayed and is looking to leave with one eye on the Premier League with London being of particular interest.

I still cannot see anything happening here despite the fact that he is one of the best strikers and finishers in the game today. A potential move would cost Chelsea an absolute fortune and I doubt if they would want to spend money on Lukaku as well as the Polish striker?

As I say, I'll expect the Lukaku and Costa deals to be completed. It would be nice to get Lewandowski but I cannot see it!

What do you think of all this?

  1. Before Lukaku goes anywhere there is a certain matter of an agreement to be reached with the club that he is contracted to. This is not Football manager where you just pick the players you want and they magically appear at the training ground.

  2. Costa just has to go no matter what - but I doubt we'll get anywhere near £50m thanks, in the main, to his recent behavior.

    Lukaku is simply a legend in his own mind and not someone I'd want at our club.

    Lewandowski I'd love to see here but I just can't see it happening. I tend to agree with your initial thoughts and put the rumours down to normal agent protocol.

    I'd like to see us negotiate with Athletico regarding a January exchange deal involving Costa and Griezman with maybe an interim loan arrangement but I suspect that is way above Emanalos imagination and ability.

  3. Once again the Rumour Mill works it magic and gets us all/going,,,and again I,m repeating myself [[ must be an age thing ]] I,m happy with whoever we get,AS long as it,s what Antonio wants,and they are not ;;you know who,s ;; targets..Lewandowski I agree with what,s already been said ie he wants a pay/rise,,,he would be great though,,,can,t wait to see the back of DC.
