Diego Costa has been offered more than double his current wages at Chelsea to dump Chelsea and join the bandwagon to China.

So many people have said their opinion about Costa, and a lot of pundits have attacked Diego Costa over his rumoured interest in the China deal.

However, Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler isn’t one of those. The former Premier League star has taken a dig at people criticising Costa, while admitting that he’d also be tempted to jump ships for that kind of money. Interestingly, he believes almost everyone would do the same.

“If it’s true he’s being offered £800,000 a week, I wouldn’t condemn him at all,” Fowler told the Mirror. “He’s 28, he’s won the league with Chelsea and has been a big part in why they will probably do it again this season.

“He has no loyalty to England, no ties. He came here to earn good money at Stamford Bridge and win medals, and he’s done that. He’s already travelled half way round the world to make a living, so going to China is a natural step towards the end of his career.

“Who can say with their hand on heart they wouldn’t be interested in such mind-blowing sums? But for other reasons too.”
