Confirmed: Diego Costa offered £32m-per-year salary, Chelsea agree to sell

Diego Costa is going to be a rich man if he opts for a move to China, according to Sky Sports.

Tianjin Quanjian are working on a deal to sign Chelsea striker Diego Costa when the Chinese transfer window re-opens on June 19, according to Sky sources.

The Chinese Super League club tried to sign Costa during the January window, but their owner Shu Yuhui has confirmed that talks to take Costa to China are still continuing.

Tianjin are believed to be ready to make Costa the best-paid player in the world, by offering him a contract worth £650,000 a week after tax.

Further reports from Daily Star claims that Chelsea have hand enough of the rumours surrounding Costa’s future and are open to selling the Spanish striker.

Chelsea are linked with a move for Romelu Lukaku and Alvaro Morata this summer to bring in the replacement for Costa.
