Frank Leboeuf was an absolutely brilliant defender for Chelsea in the 90s, so it would certainly be wise to listen to him when he speaks.
Especially when he is recommending a centre back, the position that he played so superbly throughout his successful career.
Leboeuf believes that Chelsea need to sign a new centre back this summer, and he wants a high calibre type.
In fact, he has named a player whom many Chelsea fans would love to see arrive at Stamford Bridge this summer, and many would agree when Leboeuf says that Chelsea ‘need a player like that.’
He is of course talking about Napoli centre back Kalidou Koulibaly.
Chelsea would surely benefit from a player with the leadership qualities and 18-yard box dominance that Koulibaly can bring you, and Leboeuf believes Chelsea are the perfect fit for him as well.
As reported by Goal, the former Blues defender said:
“I will never ask him to go to Manchester United for many reasons.
“I want him to win some stuff and I think Manchester United is not the club that they used to be and they’re not ready to win stuff.
“I think Liverpool would be a good fit with [Virgil] van Dijk, that would be fantastic. PSG as well with Marquinhos, there would be two great central defenders.
“I think Chelsea will need a player like that. I don’t know if Koulibaly will be interested, but even if they have two very good central defenders, Koulibaly I think belongs to another level and would fit very well.”
