Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa will reportedly join Chelsea for £32million this summer.

Speculations have been rife over the past few months, but the Sun suggests that Blues boss Jose Mourinho "has finally got his man."

The 25-year-old Brazil-born Spanish international, who has, so far, scored 27 goals in Spain's top-flight, only three behind top-scorer Cristiano Ronaldo, is enjoying a tremendous season with the Rojiblancos, with the Champions League and La Liga trophy still up for grabs.

He netted a penalty when his club recently defeated the west Londoners to book a finals date with Real Madrid in Lisbon.

Whether there is truth to the headline or otherwise, one thing's for sure, Mourinho will be signing a world-class striker like Costa, as he is now experiencing what it's like to not have a hitman who could deliver the goods, day in and day out.
