Chelsea set to make Diego Costa the club's highest earner

Diego Costa Chelsea

Diego Costa is set to agree a new mega-deal to remain at Chelsea and end speculation over his future at the club, according to reports.

Media reports on Tuesday suggested that a deal had been struck to keep the Spain worldwide at Stamford Bridge, but Sky sources understand that they are premature.

Costa, 28, seemed to be heading towards a Stamford Bridge exit after he became unsettled by Chinese club Tianjin Quanjin's £30m-a-year offer, but the Blues rejected any chance of a departure.

The lucrative deal is expected to last five years, meaning Costa could earn up to £65million by the time he's 33.

The attacker has been in stunning form this season, scoring 15 goals and providing five assists in the Premier League.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said that everything between him and Costa is fine now after their bust up earlier this year saying "he is very happy to stay with us". "Yes", Chelsea boss Anotnio Conte told the BBC. "Diego is a really important player", he continued.

Chelsea have opened talks with Diego Costa over a new contract. Yes, I think so.

Premier League leaders Chelsea are reportedly moving forward in negotiations over a fresh contract with Diego Costa.

The Spain worldwide, 28, has been heavily linked with a move to China but now looks likely to stick around at Stamford Bridge to become the club's highest-paid player.
