Manchester United plotting a bid for N’Golo Kante
The 31-year-old midfielder has just one year left on his contract at Stamford Bridge, and the Red Devils are looking to snap him up as a replacement for Nemanja Matic.
The former Leicester City midfielder has been a key player for Chelsea since joining the club, but his form has dipped over the last 12 months, and his injury record has been a concern for Thomas Tuchel.
It will be interesting to see if Chelsea decide to cash in on him this summer and bring in a new defensive midfielder.
The Chelsea manager has recently admitted that Kante’s injury problems are concerning because he only plays about 40% of the games.
There is no doubt that the French international midfielder is a world-class player when he’s fit, and he could be a quality short term signing for Manchester United.
The Premier League giants need to add more quality at the centre of the park, and the 31-year-old could be available for a reasonable price because of his contract situation.
Chelsea will not want to lose him on a free transfer next summer, and therefore this is their final opportunity to cash in on him for a reasonable price.
According to a report from the Guardian, the Red Devils are considering a summer bid for the World Cup winner, but the Blues are reluctant to sell a fan favourite.
The 31-year-old has proven himself across multiple clubs in the Premier League, and there is no doubt that he could make an immediate impact at Old Trafford as well.
It will be interesting to see how the situation develops over the next few weeks.
