Despite not being able to sign Chelsea forward Diego Costa this January, Tianjin Quanjian owner Shu Yuhui has admitted that money wouldn’t be a stumbling block to sign Diego Costa.

According to The Sun, Shu Yuhui said in a press conference on Monday: “Theoretically speaking, there is no limit on transfer budget in the summer. We can target whoever we want.

“But on several occasions, our targets are reluctant to join us.

“We made an attempt for Pato last year but he is not willing to come because our club was still in second division then. After we get promoted, he came.

“We also approached Diego Costa and other stars. It remains to be seen who will join us in June but I can assure you that the new players will be on the same level as Costa.”
