Why would AM pay for Costa now and loan him out for a year when they could just buy him next summer after Chelsea loan him out this year?

Not much to be gained from their perspective and all the risk would be there's.

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

Pretty sure if they made it known to Costa they'd be back next summer because it doesn't make sense to buy him now given the ban it'd be okay.

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.

All good points, not sure it makes sense for Chelsea to loan him to us and then he gets injured and they can't sell him either!
