Chelsea are to be offered €90m (£72.1m) to sell to the this summer. Two clubs from the Asian league have signalled their intention to invest a continental record transfer fee to the unsettled Brazil-born striker’s representatives.

If Costa leaves the Premier League for Chinese football he can expect to more than double the £4m after-tax salary he is paid in England. According to club sources, the striker has been pushing for a move away from Chelsea for much of the current campaign and has been in direct contact with former club Atletico Madrid about an alternative switch back to Spanish football.
