Manchester United legend Roy Keane has revealed that he thinks Chelsea are better off without sulking striker Diego Costa.
The Spanish striker has had some incredibly impressive seasons in London bar one in which he considered packing it in at the club.
Though, he is still looking to bring his time at Chelsea to an end as he continues to defy club orders and refuses to return to the club.
Costa is currently still out in Sao Paulo where he spent his summer break as he attempts to force Chelsea into selling to his former club Atletico Madrid.
The Spanish side are attempting to agree a deal for the player but that is proving difficult.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are missing out on playing a world class forward on his day, who could provide incredible cover for Alvaro Morata.
Though, Manchester United legend Roy Keane believes the side are better off without the sulking star anyway.
“They are better off without him,” explained Keane.
“The guy is obviously big trouble.”
“I know he has done well for them, but he looks to me to be a bit of a balloon. Get rid of him. Have players at your club that want to be there.”
