Diego Costa responds to latest transfer rumors on Instagram

New, comments

The January transfer window had barely slammed shut before the rumor mill was back at it not 48 hours later.

We spent a good week, if not more last month on the whole Diego Costa shenanigans, with a rumored bust-up over a possible back injury leading to stories of massive bids from China. Nothing ever came of that of course, and after a few days out of the squad, Costa was back, scoring the winning goal against Hull City and even almost scoring the winning goal at Anfield, too.

Nevertheless, everything seemed to be back in order, at least until the summer, but recent reports from Spain have claimed that the China option is not only back on the table, but that Costa has even already agreed to it.

Or did he? Here’s Costa responding to the rumors on Instagram, leaving no doubt about what he thinks of them.

falam muita merda!!! They talk too much shit!!!come on Chelsea !!!

Costa used his goal-celebration against Hull City to send a similar message — “they talk too much s-star-star-hit” — while he’s been using his Instagram account to lead a charm-offensive to put to rest any lingering doubt about his commitment to the team.

But while his commitment seems just fine, the rumors persist, and just like with the rumors of his return to Atlético last summer, there’s probably a nugget of truth in there somewhere. For now however, we can rest assured that Costa is all about Chelsea. Next up are Arsenal, against whom Costa has a pretty good history of scoring and causing mayhem.
