Thibaut Courtois has taken to Twitter to claim that Diego Costa will be remaining that Chelsea this season – and it’s absolutely brilliant.
The Daily Mail reported on Friday evening that Costa had been included in Chelsea’s 25-man Premier League squad, despite an on-going feud with manager Antonio Conte that has seen him be exiled and not feature for the Blues at all this campaign.
As per the Daily Mail, Chelsea were in negotiations with Atletico Madrid over Costa’s sale, but the deal did not go through in time and the Spanish transfer window closed on Friday night.
All signs point towards Costa remaining that Stamford Bridge, at least until January – and Courtois looks to be delighted.
You may remember before Neymar signed for Paris Saint-Germain that Gerard Pique posted the below tweet, translation “he’s staying”. Later the Brazil international did move to the Parc des Princes.

Well, Courtois has showcased his sense of humour by recreating Pique’s tweet with a photo of him and Diego. This is brilliant stuff from the Blues’ big Belgian.
