As Chelsea close in on a league and cup double, another inevitability fast-approaching seems to be the fact striker Diego Costa will finally leave the club this summer.
The Spaniard has been mooted as a potential exit for months now and recent reports suggest Chinese Super League outfit Tianjin Quanjian finally have their man.
While his form in the second part of the season has left a lot to be desired, the 28-year-old’s goals during the opening part of the campaign have helped the Blues close in on what looks like being a second league title in three years.
Any deal to take the former Atletico Madrid man to the Far East is likely to be an expensive one, with figures of £76m touted. Though his departure will leave a gaping hole in their attack, the notion of receiving such a fee makes the deal a popular one.
With that in mind, here’s how Chelsea fans reacted.
I wouldn't mind if Diego Costa opts to leave Chelsea after winning us the 'double'.#CFC

#CFC set to pocket fourth highest transfer fee ever (£76m) for Costa. Sensational negotiating yet again.
