A dream rather than a rumour I think. Chelsea wouldn't let him go to us

On-loan though, where he couldn't play against them - he'd make us significantly stronger against their rivals. I personally don't think there's any chance whatsoever but if you don't ask you'll never know.

Absolutely not. The type of players Koeman has brought in are all high character guys. Many of them are captains for either their clubs or their countries or both. Costa is an incredible player when his head's in it but he's one of the worst characters on a pitch in world football, we all know this. Let's not sell our souls as fans so we can have one season of this manbaby representing Everton. For every class goal there would be an incident that would make us ashamed he was wearing the shirt.

Everton boss Ronald Koeman refuses to rule out deal for Chelsea outcast Diego Costa

That was almost a week ago, which is why it's been being discussed in the thread you've just posted it in :lol:.

I have been in Liverpool for a week, suffering , and now even you are picking on me, I will go back in my shed and eat worms now my precious. :dry:

 

I think I posted about the possibility of this a while ago in here but not able to find it. May have been in another forum, but felt sure I had at least made a mention of it in here.

Koeman wants him. After today's pre match conference, I've no doubt that we'll be looking into this as an option.

 

Doubt it will come off. But he's on the list.

Agreed. Could be a smart side bet for someone.

Koeman may be courting him publicly but there is no way he'll come here- I don't want him if it's just until January either- why should we keep him fit for Athletico only for us to be left in the lurch.

Because his goals could get us an extra 10 points or more by then and it buys us time to get a permanent signing in

This would be one of my concerns.

 

Not so much keeping him fit for someone else, so to speak, but how long would we really have him for fully fit?

 

Say if...and it's a massive IF, he came on 31st August, with him having isolated himself in Brazil and only really training with his pals, how long before he's 'training fit', never mind fully effective match fit?

 

I'm not sure an until January deal is good for us.

I'm actually beginning to believe this may happen. He simply can't stay at Chelsea - it's gone too far. He only wants to go to Atletico and the fact that he can't play until January doesn't seem to be an issue - should be straightforward but Chelsea and Atletico/Costa don't seem to be able to agree anything at this point... do Atletico actually want him? If this doesn't happen then we're one of a few realistic options. He's already ruled out China with the World Cup coming up.

 

It'd have to be a loan deal as Costa wouldn't choose to join us but he'd have to give his all for his own benefit of going to the World Cup next summer which is what his main goal will be. He'll only get into that Spain squad if he's at the top of his gain - that will benefit whoever he ends up playing for.

1982 makes a really good point do Atletico want him now, he may only have eyes for one club but they maybe thinking we don't want to risk that he comes back here and throws his dummy out the pram when something doesn't go his way.

Who ever takes him now would be advised to build certain clauses in his contract, to cover them selves.

I'm all for this move.

 

If Costa scores the goal that fire us into the top 4 then it's mission accomplished. We will have Champions League football and the picking of any of the strikers in Europe the following summer.

 

If not then his loan comes to an end and it only really cost us his wages.

This would be absolutely pointless. He's going to take ages to get fit, so if he'll be gone in January anyway then why bother?

Yep and leaves us double fucked in January having to pay even more for his replacement as any club selling to us would know we were desperate to replace him.

This might be a dumb question, but are Atletico going to pay him that?

No idea what their wage structure looks like, plus maybe he'd be happy to take a paycut there seeing as thats the only club he wants to go to. Maybe?

It's gone too far for something not to happen now I'd say.

Probably but it's always good to show that interest/ maybe lay some of the foundations behind the scenes if it doesn't happen with them. He's better than we'd realistically get otherwise.

He's already said he's quite happy to sit out the rest of his contract (two years) if he doesn't get the move he wants, which is obviously Atletico.

 

I just don't really see this happening or if it does it even being favourable to us.

He also said he wouldn't go to China with the World Cup looming as it's not a high enough level.

 

I just can't see him sitting out in limbo if Atletico doesn't happen - stranger things have happened though.
