Chelsea striker Diego Costa has been linked with a big-money move to the Chinese Super League but former Manchester United defender Gary Neville says Chelsea must do everything to keep Costa next season.
“Costa, for me, is an animal,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“When he’s not scoring, he’s contributing. The way Chelsea play, with a single striker, if he leaves it’s a huge void to fill.
“Forget the fact that you might be able to get somebody who scored the goals he scored, which is a challenge in itself, but to replace that personality, that fire, [will be hard].”
