Shanghai Shenhua boss Gus Poyet wants to signChelsea striker Diego Costa this summer, but thinks it will be hard to lure the player to the CLS.
“I would love to [sign Costa] but it will be very difficult for us because of the quantity [of non-Chinese players] we have got. There are three who are playing,” he told talkSPORT.
“There would have to be a massive change to the structure of the club to be able to bring Diego here.
“I don’t know if it’s going to happen, I would never say ‘no, never’, but I would say it would be very difficult for him to come here.”
Poyet already has three overseas stars in his squad – Nigerian striker Obafemi Martins, Colombian midfielder Fredy Guarín and Argentine forward Carlos Tevez.
