Leboeuf urges Chelsea to ignore Barcelona midfielder Coutinho

Chelsea hero Franck Leboeuf says they should ignore Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho.

On-loan at Bayern Munich, Coutinho is the subject of loan talks between Chelsea and Barca.

But Leboeuf is unconvinced by what the midfielder could offer the Blues.

"Well, to be really honest, and frank, no [Chelsea should not sign him]," Leboeuf told ESPN FC.

"I think Coutinho is a good player and I'm not even trying to be harsh on him, I think I want to find Barcelona guilty for the situation because they put a price on Coutinho who I think doesn't belong to that league."
