- Diego Costa has agreed personal terms with Chinese club Tianjin Quanjian
- The Spanish international will leave Chelsea at the end of the ongoing season
- Chelsea have lined up a mega deal for Everton striker Romelu Lukaku to replace him
Chelsea striker Diego Costa is on the verge of leaving Stamford Bridge at the end of the ongoing Premier League season after agreeing £25 million-a-year move to join Chinese Super League side Tianjin Quanjian.
NAIJ.com understands that the Spaniard met with personnel from the Chinese club over a meal and has since agreed a monster pay-packet to join Fabio Cannovaro and Axel Witzel in the Far East.
Recall that Diego Costa and Chelsea boss Antonio Conte had a bust up at the club's training over a move to the Chinese Super League.
But the former Juventus manager has brilliantly steered both player and club back on track and Costa’s goals have helped fire Chelsea to the brink of Premier League glory.
And now the 28-year-old Spanish international looks set to join the financial revolution in China where there have been several top ten-highest salary marks set.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing Everton striker Romelu Lukaku as a replacement for Diego Costa.
