Diego Costa might be finding it difficult to get a new club since his spat with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, but he has about two million people who want him.

Only Atletico Madrid have shown interest in the 28-year-old and even them can’t sign him to start the new season until January, due to a transfer ban.

However, the Chelsea forward has become the subject of an intense and bizarre interest from Besiktas fans on social media. A trend in the past three days, which started with a simple Instagram post featuring him and his friend Petros Araujo has attracted close to two million comments from Besiktas fans – almost all of which are urging him to join Besiktas.

He shared a snap with Petros – a Brazilian midfielder who joined Sao Paulo from Real Betis last month – and it attracted an incredible 1.7 million comments as of Saturday morning, with the vast majority of them simply featuring the words “Come to Besiktas.”
