Diego Costa Tips Lukaku To Replace Him At Chelsea
Chelsea striker, Diego Costa, has said he “could be leaving” the club this summer and wants Romelu Lukaku to be signed as his replacement.
After their FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal, Costa admitted that he might leave for Spain.
When asked if the champions should sign Lukaku, Costa said: “I do not know – that’s a decision for the club. Of course Lukaku is a very big player who played an impressive season. I hope he can sign at Chelsea because it’s a unique club.”
The Spain international also made a case for Michy Batshuayi, who only played a handful of games after arriving last year from Marseille.
“He is a big player and has an impressive future for himself. The past matches have proven that he has quality and scoring ability.
“He is a boy who will take great steps. Hopefully he will continue to grow – he has all the qualities to stay here. Batshuayi may stay because he’s young and I could be leaving,” Costa added.
