News according to Gianluca di Marzio that the Spanish Champions Barcelona, will launch an audacious bid to try and price N’Golo Kante away from Chelsea immediately after the World cup.
The former Leicester city man has been so impressive for his National team so far at the world cup as he has helped France to a third world cup finals in their history, Kante has so far proven as one of the best midfielders in the world.
The 27-year-old France international has gone to be among the best in his position following his move to Chelsea from Leicester in 2016 and has won two Premier League trophies and FA cup in his first three seasons in England.
His commitment and dedication to the game has attracted most European big horns like Barcelona and Paris Saint Germain to be hunting for his services.
The Spanish Champions has identified N’Golo Kante to come in and replace their former iconic midfielder Andres Iniesta who has left for China immediately after last season. And they are making plans to approach Chelsea for the 27-year-old immediately after the World Cup in Russia.
Meanwhile Chelsea are on the verge of signing Jorginho from Napoli this week, as the Brazilian born Italian midfielder will join in a deal worth £53m.
According to Di Marzio that Barcelona are planning offering Andre Gomes as part of the deal after the Portuguese couldn’t live up to expectation at the Nou Camp.
Chelsea are said to be desperate in keeping their star midfielder, despite missing out on Champions League and are on the verge of offering the French man an improved deal to ward off interest from other clubs.
Notwithstanding, if Chelsea are pushed to sell, then they will ask in the excess of £100m for Kante but it seems impossible to let go of one of their fans favorite at Stamford Bridge.
As Chelsea have shown Antonio Conte the exit door and are on the verge of appointing Maurizio Sarri as their next manager, it’s left for the Italian gaffer to decide if the midfielder will be sold or not in this transfer window.
