France's 1998 World Cup-winning member Frank Leboeuf thinks that the Premier League could very much be Kylian Mbappe's next possible destination. Leboeuf told CasinosEnLigne.com that Liverpool can turn out to be Mbappe's potential suitor if Real Madrid miss out on the Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) sensation's signing. The legendary Chelsea player, however, seemed quite disappointed with the way the Blues have been performing in recent times. Leboeuf spent five years in England with Chelsea. He is clearly not happy with the new ownership.
"Manchester City or Bayern Munich could potentially move for Mbappe, but I think those two clubs already have great players. I think Liverpool could be an option, but I'm not sure Mbappe will want to live there! That's all due respect to the Scousers," Leboeuf said.
Chelsea announced Mauricio Pochettino as the head coach of the side this summer. But his arrival has not helped Chelsea in changing their fortunes. They are currently struggling at the 14th spot in the Premier League. Chelsea's attacking unit has been quite miserable this time.
"Let's be realistic – Chelsea are a mid-table club. Attracting players will be tough and players like Mbappe won't want to come. The big players want to play in the Champions League. Arsenal had that problem for years, and so did Manchester United. Top players won't come to Chelsea because the club has fallen. It's unbelievable to see what the club has become just two years on from their Champions League win. I'm disgusted with it. I have nothing against Todd Boehly, but they need to change things quickly or else they'll kill the club," the 55-year-old former centre-back said.
Chelsea failed to qualify for this season's Champions League after finishing their Premier League campaign in the 12th spot last time. Chelsea have reportedly invested around £1bn in the transfer market since Todd Boehly took charge of the Premier League club 18 months back.
The investment has not paid off yet. Chelsea scored just 38 Premier League goals last season, the second-lowest in a single campaign in the history of the club. Their lowest Premier League tally in a single campaign appeared back in 1923-24 when they were relegated.
