Suning are also keen to offer £ 80m to Chelsea to close the deal and Costa’s agent Jorge Mendes is told be already in China to discuss the offer.

Former Chelsea midfielder Ramires tried to attack the referee after he was shown a red card during a Chinese Super League clash with his new side Jiangsu Suning yesterday night.

The 29-year-old Brazilian international was sent off after the final whistle and he didn’t accept the decision, trying to fight with the referee. Teammates and coaches had to keep Ramires away from the referee to avoid a brawl.

Ramires is probably going to face a severe ban from the Chinese Football Association following his violent behaviour shown on the pitch.

Chelsea reportedly turned down a £57.5 million bid from Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning for midfielder Oscar. 

The Blues sold fellow Brazilian Ramires to Suning earlier in January for £25 million, which at the time broke the Chinese transfer record. However, that record was then broken twice again in the same month.

Should the bid for Oscar have been accepted, he would have broken the record for a fourth time inside a month.

Oscar, along with several other key Chelsea players, have been linked with moves away from Stamford Bridge in recent months, although the failure of this bid seems to suggest that Guus Hiddink is keen to hold on to his key players.
