Sorry United as £100 million world class act Koulibaly ‘more suited’ to signing with Chelsea

Former Chelsea defender Frank Lebeouf thinks Kalidou Koulibaly would be more suited to the Blues than Manchester United.

Regarded as one of the finest defenders in the game right now, and tipped to leave Napoli when the transfer window opens up at the end of the month, there has been alot of speculation in the media linking Chelsea and Manchester United with a move.

Both teams have great attacks that will cause damage next season, but defensively they have been worrying this season and they will both need to improve if they want to challenge for that Premier League title.

But with both clubs interested, Leboeuf has claimed that Chelsea would be more suited to Koulibaly than a move to United, he was quoted on the Daily Express website: “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.

Paris Saint-Germain 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.

“I know he has a link with Liverpool, Van Dijk and Koulibaly at the back – my God, that’s going to be another Red season I guess.

“Definitely with Van Dijk, and when you’re a defender like Koulibaly, that would be the best central defence in the world.”

Koulibaly is a world class defender that would be a great signing for either club, but right now, Chelsea need him more.
