Chelsea striker Diego Costa is willing to stay at Chelsea after the summer and reject the lure of moving to China.
According to The Sun, Costa wants Chelsea to double his pay to £300,000 a week. The Spanish international currently earns £150,000-a-week.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is reportedly not willing to be bullied into meeting Costa’s demands and will also not be forced to let the 28-year-old striker leave in the summer.
Abramovich is reportedly willing to improve on the previous offer of £200,000-a-week but will only go as far as offering Costa £225,000-a-week on a five-year contract.
If Costa signs the new contract, he would be tied to Chelsea until he is 33 years old.
Every Chelsea fan would be hoping Costa signs a new Chelsea contract as we don’t want to lose him.
