According to multiple outlets, the 28-year-old will see his wages more than double under the new contract, despite currently being under contract with the Blues until 2019.

Costa will see his weekly wages increase from roughly $184,000 to over $430,000 after lighting the PL on fire since joining from Atletico Madrid back in 2014.

The Spaniard has netted 50 goals in 97 overall appearances for the Blues, with 13 finishes coming this season as the Blues currently top the PL.
