In 2014, Diego Costa signed a 5-year contract with Chelsea, and inherited the number 19 shirt, which is the same number he used to wear at his previous team.

Diego scored 21 goals in his first season in England, he won the Premier League title and the League Cup.

Known for his physical strength, talent to score goals and the ability to hold the ball up, Costa was not very well-known before joining the Blues.

Being a football player at an early age, Diego Costa never thought he would turn professional due to the remote location of his home town. He signed for his first European club in February 2006, Portugal’s Braga. He initially struggled with loneliness and the comparatively cold weather of northern Portugal.

He joined Atletico Madrid in 2007 and spend the rest of the season back on loan at Braga. Three loan moves at a number of Spanish clubs happened before in the summer of 2009 he joined Real Valladolid. A deal that sent goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo in the opposite direction.

The transfer included a €1 million buy-back option that could be activated by Atlético at the end of that season. During his time at the club he went on to score 8 goals in 34 games.

Just a year later Costa resigned for Atletico Madrid initially as a backup to Sergio Agüero and Diego Forlán. With the Agüero injured for a game against Real Zargoza early in the season Costa scored the team’s only goal.

The following year, he scored all 3 goals during a game against Osasuna.

In July 2011, during Atlético’s pre-season, Costa suffered a serious knee injury, going on to miss the majority of the season. The injury prevented him from passing a medical at Turkish club Beşiktaş having already agreed to transfer to them.

He went on two have two successful season at Atletico which brought him to the attention of Europe’s elite clubs. It was Chelsea who took a risk on him after the player had a history of injuries and transferred in 2014. The Spaniard went on to score 43 goals in 94 games for Atletico.

While playing for Chelsea, Costa has surprised many people, with his incredible talent. At the start of this season, Antonio Conte was not very convinced that Costa would be a good asset to the team as he was known to lose control.

Over the last 5 months Costa has learned self- control and is loved by his team mates and Conte. During his two seasons at Chelsea, Costa has already around 50 goals, which include the League, Cup and Europe matches.

Rumours have it that Chelsea is planning to give Costa a new deal, that would be a two- year extension, at £200,000 a week.
