Diego Costa’s move to Fenerbahce was definetly called off this morning, ChelseaNews24 exclusive sources revealed us.

The Spanish striker was really close to move to the Turkish side on loan for the next four months, but his demands on the wages were considered too high after an agreement for £ 4m + 2m on add ons was found yesterday.

Chelsea gave him the green light after accepting a free loan until December 2017, with an option for a permanent moved fixed at £ 45m.

But the Brazilian-born striker changed his mind, since he already promised himself to Atletico Madrid from January 2018: Fenerbahce agreed to include a clause in the deal to set him free for his return to the Colchoneros, but then Costa increased his wages request to Fenerbahce with a shocking £ 7m deal for just four months.

Now the Turkish Super League side has just a little more than 24 hours to find another top striker on the market, with ex Blues Samuel Eto’o among the favourites to sign for them, and Chelsea will have to deal with an AWOL player for other four months, until the Atletico Madrid transfer ban will end and he will be free to move to Atletico.

Diego Costa was left out of squad by Antonio Conte after the pair fell out in the end of the past season: the Brazilian-born striker is AWOL despite being included in the Blues Premier League squad, and always claimed his only wish is to return to Atletico Madrid.

But the Spanish side have to respect FIFA transfer market ban until the end of 2017 and Diego can join them back only in January 2018.

Next year all major national teams will have to challenge in Russia 2018 World Cup and the Spanish forward needs to play during the season to be selected in the Spain squad.

This is the reason why Fenerbahce presented an offer to Diego last Monday: ChelseaNews24 exclusive sources in Costa’s entourage revealed the Turkish side proposed a £ 7m deal to the player that accepted the offer and free loan to Chelsea, who wanted a fee. 

The two clubs agreed a £ 5m fee for a season-long loan, but then the Spanish forward changed his mind, claiming he just wanted to be loaned to the Turkish only for the next three months, asking a £ 4+2m add ons in wages for until the end of 2017, so to join Atletico in January 2018: in this case the loan would be free of charge.

Always according to our exclusive sources Costa rejected a £ 24m per year contract Tianjin Quanjin last January, when the winter transfer window was opened and Chelsea could still replaced him, and then accepted a £ 26m on February from the same side, but the Blues had no chance to substitute him anymore so they didn’t let him go: it was in this period that his relationship with Conte started to fall out.

The deal can be closed today or tomorrow, as the transfer market window in Turkey is still open until tomorrow night.

After Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain snubbed Chelsea, Blues boss Antonio Conte wants the club to break the Kenedy loan agreement with Newcastle.

The Brazilian winger was set to move to the Benitez’s side on this deadline day, but after failing to sign the Arsenal player ( who is now set to join Liverpool) Conte believes Kenedy must stay at Stamford Bridge.

The Italian manager was keen to add another left-back to his squad to challenged and give rest to Marcos Alonso – who moved to West London last year – but Chelsea missed the signings of Alex Sandro, Danilo and Oxlade-Chamberlain during this transfer window, that is why Kenedy is set to stay.

Chelsea loanee Tammy Abraham was one of the protagonists in Swansea win at Crystal Palace today.

The 19-year-old scored his first Premier League goal in the 2-0 success of the Swans at Selhurst Park, a volley on a Leroy Fer’s cross on 44 minutes.

Ayew scored the second goal for the Welsh side in the beginning of the second half.

It’s the third defeat in three Premier League games for Crystal Palace, with manager Frank de Boer on the brink after getting 0 points for his side in this start of the season.

After his foolishness on social networks compromised his China tour with Chelsea and, probably, also his future at the West London club, Brazilian young winger Kenedy is set for a loan move to Newcastle.

It seems that the loan will not be authorised by Antonio Conte just yet, as the boss is concerned about losing yet another member of his squad, which is already paper-thin.

The Kenedy deal will probably be completed once Chelsea will secure another couple of players in this transfer window.

Liverpool legend Phil Thomson urges the Reds to complete a sensational deal: to sign Chelsea star Diego Costa on loan for six months after he will sign again for Atletico Madrid, until the Spanish side’s ban on the market will end and they will be able to play the Brazilian born striker in January 2018:

Thomson told the Irish Examiner:

Dare I say it: Diego Costa signs for Atletico Madrid and then gets loaned out to Liverpool?

“It would be quite a dream, wouldn’t it? I’d take him for six months.”

“Going back three or four years when Liverpool were in for Costa, I think we offered £20m.

“It was £25m and the deal never got done. I was amazed. If we’d have had Suarez and Diego Costa, God, they’d have frightened everybody.

“You love these players. Every other supporter moans at them but you know as a Chelsea fan how much Costa will fight for you, do the battling for you. Good skills too. Good technique.

“Is Morata going to be (as effective) when you get into battles in the Premier League?

“It didn’t matter whether you were playing against Hull City or Manchester United, you knew what you’d get off Costa.”
