Money-spinning: Costa to Become Highest-paid Player

Diego Costa is closing in on a move to China that will see him become the best-paid player in world football.

Tianjin Quanjian believe they have an agreement in principle to complete a stunning £75million deal for the Chelsea forward this summer having failed with an attempted swoop in January.

Tianjin, who are managed by Fabio Cannavaro, were plotting a second bid for Costa. And the Chinese club are now confident of making the money-spinning signing in the coming weeks. 

If, as expected, the switch is ratified, Costa will become the highest-paid player on the planet – earning an eye-watering £620 000 per week after tax. 

Photographs emerged last week of Costa meeting with super-agent Jorge Mendes, at which Tianjin officials were understood to be present. 

Suggestions that Costa has already signed a deal are premature, but provided there are no last-minute hitches the Spain striker seems certain to sign.

Costa’s future at Stamford Bridge has been under a shadow ever since January, when the club turned down Tianjin’s approach. - Online Sources
