Manchester United legend Gary Neville says it would be madness from Chelsea to allow Didier Drogba to leave.

He wrote in the Mail on Sunday: "Drogba is out of contract but I don't see how he can not be part of Chelsea's plans for the next two years. OK, he may only play 25 games rather than 50, but look what he can still offer in a pool of three or four strikers. You can afford to leave him out in some games, but can you afford to let him leave the club altogether?"
