Blues legend Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink shared his opinion about Diego Costa‘s future at Chelsea:

“I think only Costa can keep Costa happy, I don’t think Chelsea are going to keep him happy,” the ex forward told Sky Sports.

“He’s playing the best football of his career, of course he’s going to get other clubs interested, it’s just the nature of the game, and Chelsea will have to deal with that.

“It’s how he takes it further. He might want to leave, but if he keeps on doing the business on Saturday there’s no problem there.

“The team is the most important thing, and Chelsea need to do the right thing for Chelsea.
