26-Year-Old Forward Chelsea Premier
Diego Costa Contract Information:
Transferred from Atletico Madrid to Chelsea FC in July 2014.
Manager Jose Mourino said Friday that Costa may return from his hamstring injury to face Arsenal on April 26. "He is progressing very well," Mourinho said. "I think he has a chance for next weekend. As I have said our target is for Diego to play the last four matches, and Arsenal is the sixth match before the end, so if he doesnít play against Arsenal or Leicester itís not a problem because our focus was on four, but things are going so well that we think he has a chance to play next weekend."
Costa aggravated a previous hamstring injury April 4 against Stoke City and was expected to miss numerous weeks. Given that he re-injured himself after possibly returning too soon, it would not be surprising if he wasn't rushed back before the initial timetable. If he does return for the last four matches, he'll get back May 3 against Crystal Palace.
