Two Chinese sides are reportedly interested in signing Chelsea striker Diego Costa this summer.

The unnamed Asian outfits are set to offer the Blues more than £70million for the 27-year-old, with Atletico Madrid also keen to bring the forward back to the Vicente Calderon.

As revealed by the Sunday Times, the La Liga team are in contact with Costa, but may be beaten to the Spain international by a mega-bid from their Chinese rivals.

Costa may be tempted to move to the Far East by the opportunity to more than double his current £4million-a-year wages.

The former Atletico ace has 11 goals and six assists in 24 Premier League games this season, but was in torrid form before the sacking of Jose Mourinho in December.
