Ex-Blues star Leboeuf opens up and tells Chelsea we need Koulibaly in the side
Frank Leboeuf says Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly would be needed at Chelsea, with a whole host of clubs linked with a possible move.
There has been some big reports in the media suggesting that Manchester United are ready to swoop in and try to bring Koulibaly to the Premier League during the summer transfer window,with reports claiming that they have already made an offer to sign the big man.
But French World Cup winner Leboeuf believes that weneed a player like Koulibaly in their side, although he believed that the powerhouse may not actually be interested in a move to Stamford Bridge.
‘I would never ask him to go to Manchester United for many reasons, because I want him to win some stuff and I think Manchester United is not the club that they used to be and are not ready to win stuff,’ Leboeuf TOLD ESPN
‘I think Liverpool would be a good fit with [Virgil] van Dijk, that would be fantastic.
‘Paris Saint-Germain as well with Marquinhos would be two great central defenders.
‘I think Chelsea will need a player like that, I don’t know if Koulibaly would be interested, but even if they have two very good central defenders, Koulibaly I think belongs to another level and will fit very well. ”
Look, it will be interesting to see just where Koulibaly ends up when he leaves Napoli, as he needs to in order to be considered one of the best in the game right now. And even though we are not winning trophies right now, the signings they are making means that they will surely be challenging from next season.
He is a world class signing that would improve this back-line and a signing like him would send another statement of intent to the rest of the Premier League.[the_ad id=”164″]
