Chelsea are on the brink of a stunning triple swoop that will see Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa, Filipe Luis and Tiago join in a deal worth £51million.

Costa has been on Chelsea’s radar for a number of months and talks have been progressing nicely over a £32m deal.With the Blues pocketing £50m from selling David Luiz to French giants Paris Saint-Germain, the Blues wouldn’t be contravening UEFA’s stringent Financial Fair Play regulations.According to reports, Chelsea are closing to sealing a deal for Costa and they are also prepared to meet the £19m buyout clause in Luis’s contract.

The Blues are on the hunt for a left-back with Ashley Cole already announcing he is leaving the club while they could lose out to Manchester United in the race to sign Luke Shaw.Moreover, it is thought Chelsea are willing to double Luis’s £80,000-a-week wages and are hopeful of wrapping up a deal before the World Cup.However, Atletico’s chief executive Miguel Angel Gil Marin has warned Chelsea must pay the full asking price to get their men.
