Stamford Bridge side set to decimate Diego Simeone’s Vicente Calderon squad.

Chelsea are lining up a move to conduct a thorough Atletico Madrid raid with the Daily Star claiming that Jose Mourinho will look to sign a quartet of Vicente Calderon talents.
This source claims that the Blues have already agreed a £35m deal to bring in Brazilian born Spanish international Diego Costa, who netted 36 goals in all competitions last term, and will follow up that move by offering experienced midfielder Tiago a contract.
The 33 year old is set to leave Atletico Madrid as his current deal have expired and the Portuguese international may well be keen on a return to the Stamford Bridge side he represented in 2005.
Costa will certainly be a huge improvement on Chelsea’s current crop of strikers who all failed to make an impact last season.
Samuel Eto’o has not been offered a new contract so can leave the club this summer whilst Fernando Torres and Demba Ba are unlikely to have suitably impressed Mourinho to stand any chance of anything more than a limited role at Chelsea next term.
