‘I want Chelsea move’, admits Douglas Costa


Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder, Douglas Costa, has admitted that he wants to move to Chelsea in order to win everything under Jose Mourinho.

The Brazilian has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge since the New Year, but The Blues have been scouting him for the past 18-months, weighing up whether or not to make a formal bid.

The 24-year-old was considered by Mourinho over the January window, but a deal never materialised. However, the interest that was there led Costa to saying a move to Chelsea would be a dream.

Now the Brazilian has added further fuel to the fire by coming out and admitting that he wants to play for Chelsea and wants to win everything possible under the guidance of Mourinho.

‘I’d be really interested in moving to Chelsea – not only because everything Willian tells me about the club, but because I think that I’d be able to achieve everything I want having someone like Jose Mourinho by my side,’ Costa told FourFourTwo.

‘Since I left Brazil, I have worked with a marvellous coach [Mircea Lucescu] and got an idea of how much influence such a good professional can have in your football.

‘Now I think it’s time to try a new philosophy and I’m sure that Mourinho’s is the best around He’s always fighting for trophies.

‘Besides that, I’d have the chance to play in the Premier League, the best league in the world. What really impresses me is that you never know which team will win – that’s a factor that always keeps athletes motivated.’

He added: ‘There comes a time when you become sick and tired of playing in the same league. I’m 24 and I think that it’s worth trying to convince them to let me go away.’
