Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante was one of France national team stars of at the World Cup held in Russia this summer and this may have secured him a move away from Chelsea.
According to reports, Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly close to sealing a deal for the defensive midfielder this summer. As reported by Le Parisien, the French outlet claims the midfielder’s has agreed “provisional contract” with PSG via his representatives.
The same outlet added that both Chelsea and PSG are now in “advanced negotiations” over a move for Kante this summer, who earned the Premier League player of the season award in 2017.
However, report on Sunday morning via French news paper L’Equipe says PSG board have been hit with the realities of Financial Fair Play rules and they will have to raise around €100million this summer in sales before making move for new acquisitions.
With Kante reportedly valued at around €110m by Chelsea, joining PSG this summer doesn’t look likely to happen, only if reports about FFP restrictions are anything to go by.
Chelsea will be in turmoil if they are to lose Kante this summer as well as Eden Hazard and Willian, whose future at the club looks very bleak despite their new appointment of Maurizio Sarri with with Real Madrid and Barcelona circling over the duo.
