Costa Reveals Why He's Joining Chelsea

Spain striker, Diego Costa, has finally revealed why he plans on joining English Premier League side, Chelsea.
 
A Fee of 35 Million Euros was agreed for the player last month, while the striker has also agreed personal terms with the Blues.
 
And the 25-year-old has admitted he always wanted to play in the Premier League for a while.
 
"Why would I have chosen to play for Chelsea? It is a thing that is about to happen," Costa told Goal.com
 
"Things are going in a direction and, if they keep going as they are going, it is the team I will play for in the next season.
 
"I've wanted to play in the Premier League for a while. Chelsea are one of the greatest clubs of the world so there are many factors that make you take a decision like this."
 
Costa also believes he still has to work hard, even though his style of play is suited the English game. 
 
He added:" "Every year is a different story, nothing is easy in life," 
 
"I will have to work a lot to fit in with the style of the Premier League."
 
Costa was instrumental for Atletico Madrid last season, scoring 36 goals in 52 appearance as Los Rojibalncos secured the La Liga title.
