N’Golo Kante has been in the news in recent times. Now, reports have emerged that the Frenchman is looking for a move away from Chelsea
The situation involving N’Golo Kante and Chelsea has been in troubled waters, in recent times. The French midfielder is now seeking a move away from the club. This comes in the aftermath of Frank Lampard denying the 29-year-old a leave of absence to attend his friend’s wedding.
The French defensive midfielder has been plagued with injuries in recent times and that is one of the key reasons why Lampard decided to look beyond him. Lampard targeted Declan Rice in the recently concluded summer window and that has surely left Kante with a lot to ponder. Rice is young and has the same role as Kante.
Yes, the reason is as simple as it gets and N’Golo has struggled to take ‘No’ for an answer. As per Le Parisien, N’Golo Kante is tipped to leave the club next summer and Real Madrid could be the favorites to sign him. It is also believed that the 2018 World Cup winner tried for a move away from the club in the final weeks of the summer window but Chelsea never saw any concrete offers coming their way.
Inter Milan has been keeping their eye out for the midfielder and Conte has made it clear that he wants him in his team. Inter reportedly proposed a swap deal involving Christian Eriksen in return for N’Golo Kante but were met with a firm rejection from the Blues. There were some links tying Kante to Manchester United as well.
With the transfer window done and dusted, the Frenchman can only hope to leave the club in the upcoming winter window or the next summer. Having said that, it must be known that Kante has always dreamed of playing for Real Madrid with Zidane in-charge. The Frenchman is likely to utilize Kante better than Lampard.
