Lukaku in fresh Chelsea link amid Costa transfer rumours

Lukaku in fresh Chelsea link amid Costa transfer rumours”

Costa's form has noticeably dipped in 2017 since he was linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge, adding to the speculation that the Brazil-born forward is unsettled.

Shu Yuhui, the billionaire owner of Tianjin, has now claimed that a deal for Costa is in the pipeline and has vowed that the club will challenge the likes of Real Madrid and Bayern Munich for the world's best players in the transfer window.

However, Tianjin have not lost their interest, and billionaire owner Shu Yuhui insists a deal is still in the pipeline to bring the Spanish worldwide to the club. "And we have already made contacts with several players", he told Sina Sports. "It's safe to say that we have the same transfer targets as those illustrious clubs".

Costa is on a comparatively measly £150,000-a-week at Chelsea and that contract runs out in the summer of 2019.

"We are in competition with Bayern Munich and Real Madrid for transfers, so let's wait until June and then we will see".

According to Simon Johnson of the Evening Standard, while Chelsea and Conte "will consider" Abraham for a first-team role next season, the 19-year-old is much more likely to be sent out on loan to either a Premier League or a top Championship side.

Reports in the United Kingdom have indicated that Tianjin - who signed Costa's ex-Chelsea team-mate Alexandre Pato for £15million from Villarreal in January - want to make Costa the highest-paid player in the world with a contract worth £650,000 a week.

Tianjin, coached by Italy's World Cup-winning former captain Fabio Cannavaro, won promotion to China's top flight in October.
