Don't Panic: Diego Costa hasn't asked to leave Chelsea

New, comments

The Spanish media has been pushing for Diego Costa's return to Atletico Madrid all summer long, but recently they stepped up their game and claimed that the Chelsea striker has handed-in a transfer request.  Reports in Madrid were followed by reports in Barcelona (e.g. Sport) were followed by Twitter panic.

But don't panic!  It's our turn to play Leicester Mercury to foreign sources who're claiming contrary to commonly held beliefs.

Much to Leicester's chagrin, N'Golo Kante ended up choosing Chelsea and proved the foreign sources correct over the local ones.  Hopefully the reverse will be true in this case.
