The Sun is reporting (don’t hold you breath) that Chelsea have secured the signing of Douglas Costa from Shakhtar.

After the success of ex-Shakhtar Brazilian Willian, Mourinho is ready to take the same risk again.

Douglas is an attacking midfielder, so it would be likely that if he arrives, Salah and/or Schurrle will go the other way.

The 24-year-old has continued to show his ability and last season he was the joint-best assister in the Ukraine Premier League.

Douglas has been awarded with two appearances for Brazil, and even if the deal is not done – it’s certainly possible.

    Chelsea To Buy Douglas Coasta Or Couadardo Is a Big Mistake Bcos We Have Patrick Bamford, Sala , Torgan Hazzard, Izzier Brown, Lewis Baker, Islam Feruz, Dominic Solanke, Atsu, Nathan Ake, etc We Don’t Need 2 Waste Money Again

    We shouldn’t be wasting money, MOU should promote youth and give them chance if shaktar dint give douglas chance will u knw his worth?

  3. baris says:

    I agree with Solar. Jeremie Boga especially has a future @Chelseafc mou should give those lads a chance to prove there worth

    We have a lot of talented youth player only to give them chance, salah is a pure winger give him chance with hazard playing frm d other wing and costa upfront oscar cesc and matic with them and super terry ivanovic azp and cahill @ d back. What do yaa want? A lot of winning coming ur ways

    Imagine 26 player on loan non of them has ever been promoted to first team, not fair, where’s kakuta that almost cause chelsea transfer ban? Van anholt also, MOU please we want CHANGE

    Yes to promote youth is ideal but not in the middle of the season. If you need to strengthen your team in this period it has to be tested and confirmed addition like Douglas and Cuadrado. Even I want inclusion of French defender with Madrid. I can assured you this can guaranteed premier league and champions league as well. A champion goes for the best in town. Look at Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich. With their squad they still look for the best on planet. JM I say ride on.
