Is this Chelsea signing the bargain of the summer?

The summer window has already witnessed several interesting additions to the Premier League. Alexis Sanchez possesses the ability to become an attacking talisman for Arsenal, Manchester City have spent big on highly-rated centre-back prodigy Eliaquim Mangala from FC Porto, the goals of World Cup star Enner Valencia could bring West Ham to a new level and Liverpool have spent no less than £100million on seven first team signings - including the all-but-confirmed acquisition of Sevilla's Alberto Moreno. But following an impressive brace against Real Sociedad in Chelsea's ultimate pre-season friendly, Jose Mourinho believes he has one of the bargains of the summer in £32million striker Diego Costa. Rather pleased with himself, the Portuguese declared to reporters; "We consider the price very much in our favour. This is the player we wanted." So is it time we considered the Spain international as one of the summer window's best value-for-money buys, or is the Special One, as per usual, simply blowing his own trumpet? Well, in terms of pricing, it's hard to deny that the Blues have done good business. After all, Costa's eight goals in nine Champions League appearances last season were only bettered by Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cristiano Ronaldo - hardly competition you'd feel aggrieved about falling slightly short of.

    Chelsea are in the position where people are arguing about which out of 2 of their signings is the best signing of this transfer period.
    Supporters can hate the guy but any true football lover has got to agree that the guy has pure genius instincts.
    He went bak to Chelsea a place where he obviously likes and felt he had more to accomplish and he looked at what he had available which Im sure Chelsea supporters thought they looked pretty good. Jose went and sold 2 of their biggest players who he tought didnt fit with the team and although Mata might have worked wit effort the team hasnt seemed to miss them. If any other manager had done that Blues fans would have asked for his head.
    He then got rid of some other players like Lukaku for if you compare the price with Costa then its a hellova sell.
    He has strengthened his team where there was holes in it and notbought every big name player that popped his head up as some managers have.
    Whatever happens this season its going to be exciting to watch from a fans point of view and it wouldnt suprise me at all to see blue flags flying maybe across Europe again.
