50 milliion would be a bargain for him.  he hunts down the ball, he looks like a psycho, plays like a nutcase and scores shit loads of goals.

id say hes worth more than Lukaku, but Contes been a cunt, and devalued one of his best assets, this is the kind of striker we need.

better article

I don't think koeman would mention it/answer the question unless something is, at the very least, being worked on. By that I mean we are sat around a table not quite down to the finer points but far enough along we are confident a deal of some sort can be done.

On the face of it Everton signing Diego costa is a no brainer but I think his heart is set on atletico so it would definitely be a loan. If it's a season long loan I'm in. If it's till January I'd be questioning the point. The lads been fucking about in Brazil for nearly 4 months. It's going to take a monumental effort from him to be reasonably match fit at any point before the end of September. So for realistically 3 months of the season is he worth it. If he knows he's getting to atletico in January is he going to put the effort in, will his character upset the squad balance?

So if it's till Jan I'm not keen, if it's the season it would be worth it.

If you can be arsed read his version of why he is A.W.O.L. over on the BBC.

I do not agree with his behaviour but in terms of what it could mean for us, his main complaint is he feels Chelsea only want him back so they can further humiliate him.

He just seems to want to be guaranteed a place, he even suggested he cannot wait for the Atlético move forever.

He might even be alright on a loan until January so he gets a chance to stick it to Conte, I think he is likely both snidey and highly competitive enough to get off on that idea!

On the other hand if he plays a key role into getting us in the top quarter of the league he might not look to leave the first chance he gets?

Chelsea might prefer a season-long loan with a fee involved too. Worth £10m to borrow him IMO.
Title: Re: DIEGO COSTA
Post by: Robioto on August 26, 2017, 12:15:58 AM
I still think it won't happen.

But I feel like there is more chance now than this time last week, I've gone from no chance to a very very slim chance.

I would not be in favour of a half season loan unless we are completely out of options. If he wants to go to Atletico I'd say to him do a season on loan then go to Atletico at then of the season and not January. To have him for 4 months and then him go in January would be disruptive and it will be more of a nightmare to get a striker in January than now.

I think it could be a master stroke, gives Giroud time to get pissed off wth Wenger and force through a Jan move.

But that fact we are so desperate that this story has legs is extremely concerning (given our past) "sorry, we tried for Costa, but had to get this Chump on loan instead" ...
Title: Re: DIEGO COSTA
Post by: blargins on August 26, 2017, 01:25:31 AM
A six month loan makes sense for everyone. Buys us another 4 months to continue our search (and maybe Giroud will be pissed off by then and want a move), gives Costa game time until Atletico come calling, and it provides us with a quality proven forward.

And who knows, we may just touch him...

Agree with the comments about a season long loan only. Dont see the point of a 6 month loan. It'll take him 2 months to get up and running, by which time its November and theres only 2 months before he goes.
For 12 months he would be a hell of a signing. He's a monser!

We aren't chasing him. This story is based on an offhand comment in the pre-match press conference because we're playing Chelsea and it's the end of the transfer window.

Asked would we take Costa, what's he going to say? Sure. 

It doesn't mean we're doing anything about it.

He's going to Atletico, as he's done with Chelsea and seemingly unhappy in England as a whole. Atletico are allegedly even going to pay his fines while he's staying out in Brazil, probably because it's way cheaper than paying the fee Chelsea want for him. He's not coming here. Koeman knows this.

If he does come it'll be a self-serving loan before his move to Atletico. Certainly won't be permanent. He hates England and didn't settle in London, he'd fucking hate somewhere more provincial. And he isn't fit so a short term loan seems like a waste of everyone's time. He had a chip on his shoulder when he was playing for the champions, imagine how much of a frustrated liability he'd be here?!

There's absolutely no doubt that he would score goals here and would definitely fill the void left by Lukaku's departure. The only slight worry is the Costa there would be to the seemingly reasonably harmonious dressing room we have at present. There's only really Barkley at present who seems unhappy at the club, and even he doesn't seem to be kicking and screaming to leave. I just have this little niggle in my mind that Costa would come in and upset every cunt.

I don't know, I can see him living on a farm shouting at the cows and hassling the sheep.  Or ploughing a field.  I bet he'd love the havoc he could cause on a tractor.

But he's not signing for us, neither permanently nor on loan so all this country living talk is nothing more than a moo point.

Since I was old enough to know what Everton means we've only won the '95 F.A. Cup. Got robbed by a referee in '04. Crippling injuries through the spine of the team in '09.

Comparatively, I won't be disappointed if we miss out on Costa, I'll be buzzing if we get him though :)

I don't think it's that it's so unrealistic (I'm not saying it will happen just that given the unique circumstances around Costa it could) we just need to see the deal for what it is (or at least most likely to be) it will be a loan till january when atletico can sign him.

As a club we need to be weighing up if we will get enough benefit out of it. Personally I'm not so sure we do. If it's a season long loan then maybe.

It will take some Herculean effort on his part to make me forget the cuntery from him towards seamus though.
Title: Re: DIEGO COSTA
Post by: SANA_DR0 on August 26, 2017, 06:05:30 PM
whats unrealistic is, world cup year, Costa has no team. the top teams in europe have their strikers..
he's used to England (he did really well, in fact id go as far as he won chelsea the league first year he was there)


no one above us needs him or wants him, we need to take the risk, on him to help push us.

the two main strikers for Madrid, have signed new contracts, he wont be guaranteed a place there, while for us, he will end up playing week in week out, when he is fit.

we both need each other.... it all depends on him wanting to play in the world cup...

Title: Re: DIEGO COSTA
Post by: KingOfNapaValley on August 26, 2017, 11:43:36 PM
This would be a mess. I don't want a mess.

First, he is old with little time left in his prime in my opinion.

Second, even if he came he would not want to be here. It would be that he just wants to get away from Costa.

Third, he has a long history of being a pain in the ass.

Finally, he would just cause all sorts of problems at the end of the season and demand we send him off to where he really wants to go, Atletico.

This would be a mess. I don't want a mess.

First, he is old with little time left in his prime in my opinion.

Second, even if he came he would not want to be here. It would be that he just wants to get away from Costa.

Third, he has a long history of being a pain in the ass.

Finally, he would just cause all sorts of problems at the end of the season and demand we send him off to where he really wants to go, Atletico.

No thanks.

Hes 28.

Granted he looks about 40 but I would say if anything he is IN his prime.

I'd be well up for this, but not until January. It would have to be until the end of the season.
We won't be able to replace what he will bring in January. If he stayed a year it would give us an opportunity to find who we want to splash the dosh on next summer.

Hes a mess cos he wants to be loved.. and Conte doesnt love him.  (i thought Italians where supposed to be great lovers)

First, as mentioned he is 28, in his PRIME, if you have watched him play, then you could easily see he is the type of player that Koeman wants to bring in( in his prime, chases /closes the ball down, hardly ever gives up, puts in a shift and is WORLD CLASS, much more proven than last years hero Lukaku)

Second, i dont really understand what your stating.. he wants to get away from a coffee shop? do you think he likes Nero?
the whole premise of him coming here is so that he puts himself in the shop window for the world cup, therefore logic dictates that he would want to perform, to either get into the spain world cup team or put himself in the shop window for europes elite to want him, either way IF he comes, its BECAUSE HE WANTS TO COME HERE.

Thirdly,

DAT ASS

(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-3jh8TUUDkJE/U1r7qw6i5FI/AAAAAAACUBo/-UrRiClzGqk/s1600/image.jpg)

Finally, If he excells and wins a place in the Spanish world cup team, who cares, if he wants to go. who cares, enjoy where he would propel us, we'd attract better strikers (better than we have atm. not better than Costa) next season,  you sound like that depressed blue guy who used to post here,, or even realist.. we've had a lot worse 1 year loan strikers..

no thanks?

you mean yes please? look at the fun he has caused :D :D

What options does he really have. And what options do we really have at this point of a top top striker to replace Rom.

"I'm always confident because we did some good business but everybody knows and the board knows the importance of those two signings."

One of the names linked with Everton is wantaway Chelsea striker Costa, but when quizzed if he could arrive at Goodison Park before Thursday's Deadline Day, Koeman kept his cards close to his chest.

"I don't know [about Costa]. We are looking at players who are available and if we sign somebody, it is somebody who makes the team better," the Dutchman added.


"I don't speak about names, about players. It is the media who is talking about Costa or other players, but we are looking and we do our job and hopefully, we will arrange it [a striker to arrive] for next week."

Barkley and Kevin Mirallas were both absent from Everton's match day 18 and have also been subject to transfer talk, with Koeman giving updates on their current positions at the club.

"Mirallas was out because he is struggling to deal with moments in the season and with disappointments. Everybody can be disappointed but I expect from everybody to be part of the team and if somebody is showing that his attitude is not the same, I make decisions," he said.

"Until today, yes [Barkley is staying at Everton], because we don't have any offer on the table for Ross."

If we had a shout of keeping rom then all day long I'd keep rom. With rom wanting to leave then if it was a permanent signing of Costa then yes. He's a bit of a pain in the arse and a bit of a cunt but he would be our cunt. Even a season loan then I'd be happy. Would give us a chance to push CL then we are in a better position to sign players. But the loan till January thing just seems a bit pointless. Unless there is someone else coming too. Or we think come Christmas DCL will have developed enough.

Spite :-\

I reckon the nasty little bastard (on the pitch) would do it precisely because once he crosses the white line the competitor inside him would take over. There have also been no suggestions from any of his team-mates he is disruptive to the squad.

On the injury point, if Atlético sign him but loan him to us for a while, it is not like an injury would mean they can change their mind about signing him!

If it was a proven top pro you would think likely give everything regardless. He is a really good player and when his head is in the right place he s a great compeititor. But he is a loose cannon, so the scenario you paint is most likely. Even if not it's October before he is going to be match fit anyway so you could 2-3 months of him.

I'd be good with it if there are no options we want or can get it this week so it delays the problem. Or if we got another striker and he was an addition to them to compliment the squad until January. Plus if we knew we could get someone in January to replace him and this was better than doing nothing now.

Chances are probably slim, but it would suit all involved, if he signed for atletico and then came to us on loan. We would be taking a chance that if he isn't fit, we can get enough out of him to make it worth it. At this late stage think he is without doubt our best option, if he can be convinced to come. If he were to go atletico then be loaned out surely they wouldn't want the go to another CL side.

Everton: we're signing Diego Costa for 6 months. Easily one of the best strikers in the premiership.

If he signs for AMadrid I think they'll loan him to a mid table Spanish club to ease him back to the league with less chance of injury and he could hurt their main rivals.

Its a discrace we've started the league without a main striker after all that good work early on, we look 3/4 players short and yes we've been hit with injuries but offensive speed & goals has been known about before Lukaku left...

No. Sirrrr!

he's on another level to Eto'o (Eto'o came at the end of his career) Costa wants to prove himself for the world cup, I think we'll keep him all season, then buy him, as he would have fallen in love with the club, its happened many times before, never to a player of the level of Costa tho...

I'm sorry, no matter how good he was last year (when he wanted to play, AND was match fit), I just can't get excited about giving a good player back after half a dozen league games, probably just when hes getting match sharp and decent.

I'd sooner we concentrated our efforts in the last few days in signing someone like Benteke who will want to prove just how good he is at a proper home, or even a very good older striker like a Vardy or even Dzeko as a makeweight, then once we have a permanent and decent main striker for at least a couple of years, THEN worry about getting others in.

Would he be able to play in Europe for us?

Presumably if Atletico are going to have him in Jan onwards then they will want him for the champs league

Or is it ok to play in 2 separate European comps for different teams in the same season?

Really hope we get him. Gives us more time to find the right player to sign in Jan, helps out with Calvert-Lewins development, point to prove and a recognised prem goalscorer. Also I think the fans would actually love him once he's out there being a beast on the pitch. If he helps us get points on the board and progress in the cups then it's all good isn't it?

I would have hoped we would have had someone lined up when we knew our main man was going, or shortly after, not desperation signings in the last few hours. For such an important position its vital. If Costa hits the ground running, he will be a fantastic addition to the squad (for a few weeks), but if he is anywhere like what we are seeing on the news, then it could add even more disruption for a few weeks. You would think with "Super Walsh" we could find 1 good striker in the world, somewhere.

Well we obviously had Giroud lined up but then he didn't follow it through.

There is an argument we waited too long for him; if that's true then obtaining a short term sticking plaster is better than waiting too long (given the deadline is Thursday) to trying to get someone permanently if the best players aren't available.

Whilst we're at it lets have Vardy too :)

Keane ---------- NewLCB
Holgate------------------------------------ Baines


Gana Gueye ------------ Schneiderlin

Sigurdsson


Rooney ------------ Vardy(Vlasic)
Costa

Doesnt take much to make the team look a thousand times better, when you add pace and finishing. Rooney and Sigurdsson are great on the ball and linking up, and Gueue and Schneiderlin are obviously great at getting it back, and our defence/keeper are pretty good normally. We arent that far away now, our owners just need the ambition to get some more proper quality in, in the identified positions, or at least good make-weights until January.

Can't see it being worth the hassle if he wasn't going to use it to get himself ready for AM - which means getting fit and in form.

I do generally agree.

Good intentions sometimes fall short when the realities of not having any real pressure on your place (which could, of course, be a good thing) and not trying to avoid injury before your dream move hit though.

I'm sure he'd be coming here with good intentions. I'd certainly be taking the risk on him over the other expensive 28+ year old guys we will be considering offering a long term contract too. I'm just not as optimistic he'll be a success as I might have been.

I think people are short changing Costa here. He's a consummate winner. If he loses anything at all, he's full of contempt for himself. It's obvious to me, this is why he's so unruly. He's a very gifted footballer from a very tough upbringing. If he comes here and that's a big "IF" I don't think he will have any problem trying hard whatsoever. He might be a twat, but he hates losing.

I think I can forgive his cuntish attributes if he bangs the goals in. Much like I was willing to ignore Lukakus off field gobshite antics as long as he did the biz on the pitch.

The proclivity to biting means Suaraz is a bit psycho, because he has no regard for others... underlined by the marathon sprint and reducer on Mirallas, and then the achilles rake on Distin.

However, the use of racism to wind up an opponent I find even more deplorable.

He's a world class striker, a winner who does whatever it takes.  Yes, his passion can boil over at times, but give me that over a sulking invert like Barkley (poor example I know, but still).  Also, he's a goal poacher, not a flying winger or box-to-box midfielder, so fitness wouldn't be a massive issue.  Plus you're just exaggerating.

I just cant see how he would go anywhere on loan for the whole season. The only reason he will go on loan anywhere is because Atletico cant register signings to play until January, why would they or he want to go somewhere for the year? They will want him as soon as they can so wherever he goes it will be a short loan.

They will want him somewhere to get fit for January and somewhere that he wont be cup tied in the champions league for the new year possibly even Europa League in case they drop into that.

So they can have an influence over where he plays football this year.

You'd want him to be playing AND at a high level. If AM sign him they can control that. Otherwise there's a risk that Chelsea let him rot for a year in the ressies or send him on loan to someone shite in Uzbekistan 🇺🇿

Pretty sure if they made it known to Costa they'd be back next summer he'd accept it because it doesn't make sense to buy him now given the ban and the fact they can't use him for most of the season.

Loan fee from Everton? He wouldn't be getting splinters? I agree the season-long part is far-fetched though.

If they've got to pay Chelsea a £30m+ fee and he gets badly injured here before playing for them next summer a loan fee won't cover the loss.

Chelsea will want to send him on loan somewhere competitive to keep his value up as well and there's no way Costa will accept being dumped in the back of beyond.

The only way us getting Costa on loan would make sense is if he's a Chelsea player and he's here for the full season. Without that both ourselves and AM have the potential to lose out on this massively even though it's Chelsea in the weakest bargaining position.

@Ross (http://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=2316) , RE: Loan. It makes more sense for Atletico to pay for Costa and loan him out more than it does to just come in for him next year.
The loan fee for a player of this level is going to be big. It could be as much as £10m towards the £30m fee. Thats a MASSIVE incentive.
The risk of injury is the same whether the buy him now/loan him for 6 months/12months/dont buy him till next year. The risk doesnt change for them if this is a player they want to bring in over the next 12 months.
They get to choose where as well. Chelsea could send him to las palmas - but then be cuptied for the copa del rey. They could send him to a CL club and cup tie him for that. (Obviously Costa would reject the latter for that reason, but then he is stuck at Chelsea and not getting fit).

Anyway i look at this i think Atletico would be better served in controlling this.

At the same time though they risk him getting injured if he's out on loan. Also if he stays and trains he can get used to his new team mates (I know not all of them are new to him) and presumably play in u23 type matches/behind closed doors friendlies to help with his match fitness

Thats what barca did when they had their ban, Turan for instance didnt get loaned out they had him train with the squad not playing.

Atletico might think loan him out to get him fit and match ready for the second half of the season. There is no way they would loan him out for the whole year though there is no point to that.

It will either be they buy him and he trains with them until January when he can play and can spend the time he is there getting used to their tactics again and learning how to play with their current squad. Or they buy him and loan him out somewhere until the end of December so he can come back from their winter break fit and ready to go.

The 'outlay' is spread over the length of the contract. 4 year deal today for a £20m player is £5m per year on accounts. the FFP goes off profit/loss on each annual accounts.
As DM said, wages is another part of it, but that's all about annual increase, regardless of profit/loss.

PSG dealings have been massively dodgy. Neymar is down as coming in as a free agent as he bought his contract out at Barca due to the money he got for being a world cup ambassador for Qatar.

The then-Chelsea striker was heavily linked with a move to the Toffees in the summer, though he eventually joined Atletico Madrid
Everton striker Nikola Vlasic claims that the club did not want him to wear the number 19 shirt at Goodison Park, as they were keeping it free for Diego Costa.
The striker was heavily linked with a move to the free-spending Toffees in the summer, with the club spending over £100 million on the likes of Wayne Rooney, Vlasic and Gylfi Sigurdsson.
They were keen to secure the services of Costa from Chelsea, but he eventually sealed a move to Atletico Madrid — though he will not be eligible to play for the club until January — and Vlasic chose the No.27 shirt.
Speaking to 24sata, Vlasic explained: "No.27 was free, I wanted 8 but Ross Barkley wears it, while the club was keeping 19 for Diego Costa."
Ronald Koeman secured the signing of the Croatian striker for £10 million from Hajduk Split, and he has scored once in eight appearances this season.
The Dutch manager was sacked earlier this week, however, following a 5-2 loss to Arsenal, with former defender David Unsworth installed as a temporary caretaker.
Vlasic has expressed his regret at the firing of Koeman, but he is happy in his new surroundings as he continues to adapt to the Premier League.
“I’m sorry that Koeman got sacked, because he bought me and we had a really good relationship, but that’s football,” he added.
“Everton is a great club for young players like Jordan Pickford, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Ademola Lookman, Tom Davies, me. We all get chances; I’m satisfied.

I think Moshiri is overestimating what sort of clout he and Everton have in the transfer market.

I don't mind them trying, I mean you want the club to show ambition. Plus, I doubt they'd have gone for him other than the situation he was in might have meant he needed a stop gap solution much as we seemingly did until January. We'd not get a look in at that level of player if not for those circumstances, and you'd hope all concerned would know that.

The key thing is just move on quickly if it's not going to happen.

Very good point

I'm going to include Koeman as well - he probably thought we were going to attract bigger names, after all, he mentioned signing Costa

When did we sign Vlasic? I thought he was pretty much last minute on the last day of the window, someone should have realised Costa wasn't interested at that point.

The deal was done about fortnight  before he actually signed

read this morning that Vlasic wanted the 19 shirt, but Everton said he couldnt have it as they where saving it for Costa.
