Filipe Luís reflects on his failure to adapt to the Premier League at Chelsea

In the summer of 2014, Chelsea made several marquee signings to bolster the squad up to title-winning standard after falling just short of the Premier League crown in the preceding season. One such acquisitions was Brazilian left back Filipe Luís, who had impressed for then La Liga winners Atlético Madrid, alongside striker Diego Costa and goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, both of whom were brought in (or in the case of Courtois, brought back) from Los Colchoneroes as well in the same transfer window. While Diego quickly paid back his transfer fee and Courtois turned out to be just as good as...
Chelsea sold Bertrand Traore with buy-back option, will do same with Nathan Ake — reports

Chelsea sold Bertrand Traore with buy-back option, will do same with Nathan Ake — reports

Antonio Conte spoke of the need to be “very cold” in our analysis and transfer business this summer, and we’re likely just getting started. On Monday, young Bertrand Traore was shipped off to Lyon, while similar moves almost certainly await Nathan Ake, Nemanja Matic, and Diego Costa as well. With three squad’s worth of players in the first-team and the loan army combined last season, there will be plenty of further opportunities to trim the fat, book some profits, and get the team set up for sustained success. Nemanja Matic is Manchester United's third-choice target as summer...

Atlético Madrid must not buy Diego Costa if he wants to play before January

BVB set Aubameyang price, Liverpool, Chelsea rumors ensue

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been one of the most successful and most highly coveted strikers in football over the past many years, but despite constant rumors he’s stayed put at Borussia Dortmund since 2013. Until now. The striker, who’s older than you think at 28 — Diego Costa is only 8 months older — is looking to leaving Dortmund this summer, and after a move to Paris fell through earlier, is now basically being shopped to Premier League sides. Liverpool are said to be the most likely destination, though Klopp wasn’t always the biggest fan of PEA while they were both at...

It's a shame it has to end with 'Textgate' for one of the Premier League's best ever at Chelsea

The infamous text message sent by Antonio Conte has signaled the end for Diego Costa's mixed Chelsea career Diego Costa has won two Premier League trophies in three years at Chelsea. He played an integral part in both triumphs. In his debut year, he scored twenty goals as Chelsea strolled to the title. In the campaign just passed, Costa repeated his feat of twenty league goals with similar success. Yet, despite his contributions, the Spanish international has failed to settle in England, and his relationships with both of his non-interim managers has been sketchy at best. His fall-out with...
