Diego Costa spoke to Turkish daily newspaper Bugun this week, and told them that he would love to play alongside Arda Turan again.
The Turkish midfielder has been linked with a £28 million move to the English champions after signalling his intention to leave Atletico Madrid this summer.
“It would be fantastic. Arda makes everything so much easier out on the pitch. Arda, Filipe and I function perfectly. And Arda is such a great person. He invited us to eat at his house many times; I really liked his kebab. The whole team would go round to his house for dinner”, he revealed.
Costa also spoke about Chelsea manager José Mourinho and says it’s unfair to compare him with Diego Simeone.
“Mourinho dedicates himself completely to his work. He adores his job and immerses himself in it. At the moment the team is resting but I am sure he isn’t – he will be planning, doing things to improve the team. Mourinho makes things easier for the players. Simeone is still a relatively young coach and he always strives for the best; he always helps his players and he enjoys his job. Both of them have enjoyed success”.
