Rare Dusan Vlahovic choice has given Chelsea and Marina Granovskaia an offer they can’t refuse

This Chelsea supporter was handed a massive boost on Friday afternoon when Fabrizio Romano revealed that Diego Costa has reached an agreement with Atletico Mineiro to terminate his contract and part ways with immediate effect.

Costa, who signed with the Brazillian club back in August, will now be available on a free transfer this month.

The 33-year-old helped Mineiro win their first league title in 50 years, meaning Costa has won five league titles across three countries in his career.

As a Costa aficionado and with all the noise surrounding Dusan Vlahovic this window, Marina Granovskaia can jump on a chance to bring back the last Chelsea player to score 20 goals in a league season.

Sure he left the club with his relationship in flames and went AWOL to force his move away, and wore an Atletico Madrid shirt whilst being contracted to Chelsea, but time heals all wounds, and who else can bring the unmatched chaos of Costa.

The snarling, fearsome brutality that has been lost since he walked out. Only Antonio Rudiger has come close to replicating antics on the pitch Diego would be proud of.

Costa can also continue his incredible record of scoring on league debuts for new clubs, for Mineiro in the Brasileirao in 2021, Atletico Madrid in La Liga in 2018 and Chelsea in the Premier League in 2014 via Squawka.

Players like Timo Werner, who have been poor in front of goal, will be aided by Diego breathing down his necks.

Who else at Chelsea can provide the midweek antics at Cobham like Costa?

Driving a buggy around Cobham to annoy the groundsman, starting new fashion trends by wearing a training cone on his head or spar with physio Billy McCulloch. Diego brings a level of versatility very few can apart from his exceptional finishing.

A former title-winning forward coming back to bolster experience within the squad is not impossible at Chelsea when referring to Didier Drogba’s return in 2014 for one season. Ironically that was to assist Costa’s first year in English football after signing from Atletico Madrid.

On a more serious note, it is on Romelu Lukaku and the rest of Chelsea’s attack to reach a level of attacking efficiency Costa once reached at Stamford Bridge, which led directly to Premier League glory.

I personally would love to see Costa return to the Premier League. Still, wherever he moves next, it will be worth a watch, given how much of an enigma he is.
