Chelsea willing to sell N'Golo Kante for £88m

Kante, the France midfield, has been the subject of contact from Paris as they wish to bring the 27-year-old back to his homeland.

Sporting Director Antero Henrique is said to have met with Kante's entourage where he was informed that Chelsea would sell the player for a fee of around £88m (€100m).

Chelsea have reportedly set their price for star midfielder N'Golo Kante after Paris Saint-Germain wonderkid Kylian Mbappe revealed his desire to play alongside his global teammate at club level.

Asked which player he would like to join him in the French capital, Mbappe told beIN Sports: 'Kante, according to our needs and also the quality of the player.

It explains Kylian Mbappé's discussion of N'Golo Kanté and Marco Verratti's comments on Paul Pogba in recent interviews.

'I think he's a player that would suit our team perfectly.

Chelsea then forked out £35 million to bring Kante to Stamford Bridge and he once again starred as the Blues lifted the Premier League trophy last season to cement his place as English football's best defensive midfielder. However, while N'Golo Kante has been called the reason to why both Chelsea and Leicester City won their Premier League titles, it looks like the Frenchman may be on his way back to France.

"I think all the French like N'Golo Kante, and it would be a pleasure to have him in our league". It is my club, I am a Chelsea player.

He was in the frame for a PSG move the same year but it's believed he wanted to stay in the Premier League. After what happened last season, it was a very good one for us because we got to celebrate winning the title'.
