Chelsea Offer N’Golo Kante New, Mega Money Contract To Make Him Club’s Highest-paid Player And End PSG InterestAugust 8, 2018
KAN’T SAY NO
The World Cup winner has a near £290k-per-week deal on the table
Chelsea have reportedly offered N’Golo Kante a new contract worth almost £290,000-per-week.
The deal would see France’s World Cup winning midfielder become the highest paid player at Stamford Bridge.
Kante has been a revelation since arriving in English football
According to the Times, the Blues are acting in order to deter interest from French champions PSG, who have been strongly linked with a move for the 27-year-old.
Kante has not asked to leave the club and Chelsea are understood to have no intentions of letting him go.
The midfielder is a fan favourite in England having been a key part of Leicester’s title-winning campaign, and then repeating his success with the Blues just one season later.
Even during tougher times in 2017/18, Kante still kept up his impressively high level of defensive midfield performances.
Kante was vital to France’s success at the 2018 World Cup
At the World Cup, he endeared himself to fans in his home country, playing every match as his country brought home the trophy.
Eden Hazard is currently Chelsea’s best-paid player, earning £220,000-per-week.
