Chelsea reportedly rejected a world record offer for Diego Costa which caused the striker’s January dispute with club bosses.
Chinese Super League side Tianjin Quanjin allegedly offered €107million (£90.3million) for Costa’s services last month.
Reports in France from SFR Sport claim that Costa was offered a salary of over £85million in return for a three-year contract.
Spanish talisman Costa was dropped by Chelsea for the trip to Leicester after reports that a mega-money offer was on the table.
Blues bosses, however, insisted that it was down to a minor injury.
Tianjin owner Shu Yuhui confirmed in January that talks had been held between himself and Jorge Mendes, Costa’s agent.
