Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has been a key part of the squad ever since he joined the club from Leicester City. But it looks like he is planning on moving out – as per reports.
According to El Desmarque, the World Cup winner is planning to move out of Stamford Bridge at the end of the current season in order to look for a fresher challenge.
N’Golo Kante joined the Blues in 2016 but during the past two seasons, he’s been really struggling to find his niche in the side.
The player has been known throughout the world as a defensive midfielder but last season, Sarri chose to play him as a wide midfielder which in turn raised a lot of eyebrows.
But with Frank Lampard taking charge of the club during the summer everyone was certain that Kante would get back his original role from Jorginho but even the new boss has chosen to stick with the same tactics.
Now as per the report, N’Golo Kante wants to head out of Chelsea with the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona eager to sign him.
Madrid hold a substantial interest in the midfielder but it looks like Barcelona are also willing to spend money in order to bring him onboard.
Kante signed a new deal with Chelsea last November meaning Chelsea have no reason to panic just yet. But surely the Spanish teams will be willing to spend a heck lot of money for the Frenchman which is something Frank Lampard can really use.
Apart from the positional change, the 28-year-old has also suffered from a series of injuries this season and in his absence, the Blues have done pretty well.
So even if Lampard was to sell N’Golo Kante off next summer, the Blues wouldn’t be in much of a fiasco.
