The loud thundering screams in West London were overshadowed by the high volume jeers at the red of Manchester as United trumped Chelsea to the signing of Romelu Lukaku. Certainly, no one at Chelsea was expecting it and it has all left us shell-shocked. However, this only gives credence to the fact that Lukaku’s unfinished business with Chelsea played out in a spiteful way that makes it all but finished. If there was ever any sort of affinity he had with the Chelsea supporters, at the moment it all seems dead and gone.

In reality, Chelsea and Conte can actually offer themselves and the fans a glimmer of hope by bringing back one of our own into the fold. He is of one of football’s demoniac, enigmatic character and finest strikers – DIEGO COSTA. The pantomime villain is an enemy of himself and his exuberance has actually irritated Conte who decided to cut short the striker’s time at the club. Apparently, a replacement is all Conte wants in place of the Spanish striker which is proving to be a herculean task.

But the popular saying: “the devil you know is better than the angel you don’t know’ should be a compass to direct Chelsea. With exorbitant prices in excess of £70m being tagged on strikers of great quality, it will only be wise if Chelsea keep Costa at the club. He’s tried, tested and though not fully trusted, but can do a good job when he’s on fire.

A truce between Conte and Costa can set the ball rolling at Chelsea as this might just make sense that buying another expensive misfit that will only flatter to deceive.

Let’s keep our hopes alive. Cheers!

    I think Conte has to think twice about it, okay he could buy another striker to strengthen the squad but i suggest he retains Costa because his ability is unquestionable despite his problems which could be solved.Sometimes you buy best players but it happens they fail to deliver as expected, we all know what happened to Andrei Shenchenko and Fernando Torres. Next season we will participate in UCL as well so having only one dependable striker while competing in several competition is dangerous once he gets injuries or becomes off form.

  2. Sure, what you say but at time it is better to search elsewhere for that trust. Mistrust is worse than any trials and tests.
    Costa in deep is a topnotch striker but he lacks one thing which is vital in the world today where football is an unstable business-ETHICS. He lacks that team spirit, he is too willing to abnegate that in search for his endeavours , forgetting to be an achiever you must to be in a vision of others.
    In today football players want achievements and not loyalty. Achievement is a cohesion, a collective and individual efforts. Else they will seek it somewhere else and the manager by then will be long gone. Would you risk the obkective of 25 lads for the interests of 1, NO!
    Costa’s head has never been to EPL. He’s the child that never grows after being kicked out of the parents home. He will bemoan it till death. He’ll crave of all the niceties he used to get there, he will always wish to return there. That’s Costa for you.
    Let us allow him to go now than in January when we are deep in our mission when doors open for his former home to recruit and again like with the China deal, derail our objective.
    We have the might to acquire the likes of Sanchez, Belotti, Morata or Abumeyang. We have Mitchy we can entrust with the task. We can still change the game and play with no lead striker. Who knows it might be another change in English football as the 3-5/4-3/2 system has taken English by surprise.
