Today’s transfer news will be worrying for Chelsea fans with talk of two-time Premier League winning midfielder N’Golo Kante being freshly linked with a summer transfer away from west London.
The Express carry quotes from N’Golo Kante, who dismissed speculation at this time due to his commitments to the French national side at the World Cup in Russia.
“I am not concerned with all that.” “Today, I am at Chelsea, and today I am currently living and playing in the World Cup, that is what comes first.”
“I am not paying attention to what is being said on the club side of things at the moment.”
Paris Saint-Germain, according to the Express, are joined by Real Madrid in being the two clubs who are ‘in the frame’ for the signing of Kante who was one of the few impressive French players on the pitch for the opening victory against Australia.
New Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui, who was quickly dispatched of as Spain manager, is according to the report, keen on signing Kante with the Spanish side targeting a return to the La Liga summit next season as well as a third successive Champions League win.
PSG on the other hand are said to be looking at a £90 million summer transfer move for Kante, who is right at the peak of his powers now at 27, having won the Premier League title in back-to-back seasons at Leicester and Chelsea.
N’Golo Kante was a stalwart in the defensive midfield position for the Blues under Antonio Conte this past season, making 48 appearances in all competition, scoring just once and assisting an additional two times for the club.
