Reports are out claiming that Diego Costa hopes new Chelsea teammate Fernando Torres chooses to stay.
It is said that the former Atletico Madrid star is preparing to fight Torres for a starting role, even though Chelsea have been trying to offload his Spain team-mate.
Inter Milan and Torres’s former club Atletico Madrid both expressed an interest but his £175,000-a-week salary has proved a major obstacle.
Costa said: “It’s always good to have competition. The important thing for a big club is having great players. Torres is a great player, I know I will have to fight hard to be among the team but I like that. So I think it will be a clean and healthy competition.”
