Chelsea hero ranks Manchester United star Sofyan Amrabat as better signing than Moises Caicedo

Todd Boehly paid Brighton 115million for Caicedo, a British transfer record, in a window where Chelsea spent around 400m on 12 players. The Ecuador star had been linked with a switch to United early in the window ahead of Mason Mounts 70m arrival.

Amrabat became the second midfield recruit of the window upon his deadline day loan switch for a cost of 10m. United have the option to buy for 20m plus 5m in add-ons, something Fiorentina insisted on.

Leboeuf believes Amrabat would have been a better partner for Enzo Fernandez at Chelsea, outlining his frustration that his former club were unable to seal a deal for the player.

When I see those kind of players going to Manchester United I often talk about Chelsea trying to find those experienced players in the middle of the park,” Leboeuf lamented to ESPN.
