Diego Costa Surpasses Selena Gomez to Achieve Instagram Record

Move over pop sensation Selena Gomez, because Diego Costa has stolen a bit of your thunder. The Spanish striker has reportedly said his goodbyes to Chelsea, but his return to Atletico Madrid is still a bit far from finalized at this point.

With a sliver of hope and window just a teensy bit open, Besiktas fans got online and urged Costa to come join their club. Costa posted a photo of himself with Sao Paulo midfielder Petros Araujo on Instagram, and the comments section for some reason, lord only knows why, became overrun with Besiktas fans trying to woo him.

Com meu Parceiro @petrosaraujo ??!!

The snap was posted five days ago, and its attracted 3.3 million comments and counting since. That’s now tripled the previous all time high (1.1m), which had once belonged to Selena Gomez. The fun certainly does not stop there however. Once the online communities became aware of the singer/actress having her record eclipsed, attention then turned to the Selena Gomez IG posting.

Commenters implored the millenial juggernaut herself to join Besiktas, and in some cases Fenerbahce!
