Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has enjoyed winding up Barcelona fans after declaring Diego Costa will stay.

Costa has been hoping to join Atletico Madrid after being told by Chelsea boss Antonio Conte he was no longer wanted at Stamford Bridge.

But Atletico have been unable to agree on a fee with Chelsea.

And in a Twitter post similar to one by Gerard Pique about Neymar before he eventually joined Paris Saint Germain last month, Courtois wrote: “SE QUEDA” along with three laughing emojis and a picture of himself holding last season’s Premier League title with Costa, reports the Daily Express.

The phrase translates to ‘he stays’ suggesting Costa will be at Chelsea next season and that Courtois is happy to still have the Spaniard around.
