£89 million Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly is set to leave the Italian club this season after a season of troubles at the Italian club, sitting sixth and 24 points behind Juventus after the squad’s run-ins with owner Aurelio De Laurentiis.
Chelsea legend Frank Leboeuf has advised the 28 year old world class defender to snub a move to Manchester United and join Chelsea instead.
“I will never ask him to go to Manchester United for many reasons,” Leboeuf told ESPN FC.
“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.
“You have to make a choice at certain points. The question was: ‘What is the best fit for Koulibaly?’”
