Manchester United according to CaughtOffside as quoted by Daily Star is speculated to have approached rivals Chelsea FC star over a possible switch.

The media handle also reported that it’s unclear whether the 2018 World cup winner wants to end his stay at the Bridge ahead of the upcoming January transfer window. Kante seems happy at Chelsea with the former Leicester midfield enforcer a regular feature in Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea squad.

According to the report from the media handle, Jose Mourinho have reported made the 27yr old one of his major targets for the 2019 year, with the former Chelsea and Real Madrid trainer looking to bolster his options at the middle of the park.

Kante has been played out of position since the arrival of new manager Maurizio Sarri last summer. The former Napoli manager has preferred Jorginho to shield his back four while the Frenchman is deployed to the right wing of a three-man Chelsea midfield.

The France star appears to be pretty content at Stamford Bridge despite his positional change after a return of one goal and one assist in 12 games in the Premier League.

Kante joined Chelsea in the summer of 2016 for £34m deal following successful title winning season with Leicester City in the 2016, and also aided the Blues to win the 2016-17 title.
