Chelsea rocked as European giants plot stunning swoop for their star striker

Although he missed training today with a slight tendon problem which forced him to miss Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Stoke, he is expected to be fit to face PSG at Stamford Bridge.

And PSG’s Italian international Marco Verratti admits he expects a war when his team face Costa.

“I prefer entertaining football but having a personality like Costa in your team is always good,” he said.

“He uses warfare to win the games but I know him, he’s a good guy who transforms when he comes on the pitch.”

Meanwhile, Italy manager Conte is expected to meet Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich later this week to finalise his deal to take over from interim boss Hiddink this summer.

He has reportedly been offered a three-year deal worth £14.3m after tax.
