The French midfielder, Kante may leave Chelsea after the 2019/20 season due to a decline in performance and is not suitable for coach Frank Lampard.
A machine of scores
Last season, the Malian of France was voted the best defensive midfielder in the world by ESPN in 2019. He is a comprehensive player in both defense and attack. Possessing tough, enduring and tireless stamina helps him act as a true “machine” to compensate for his short appearance.
Only 1.68m high and weighs 68 kg so he was called with the nick “Tiny Monster”, in return the French player is very good at judging the situation, reading the match, extremely good dispute skills. Good physical strength, fast maneuverability so Kanté easily is present at every “hot” point to support, cover the teammates, prevent the opponent’s bouts.
When attacking, whether kicking the central midfielder or wing kick, N’Golo Kante always possesses speeding moves in counterattack situations or performing passing passes with high accuracy. Kanté owns a “shake butt” unmistakable, enough to fool the defender.
In August 2015, Kanté joined on a four-year contract with Leicester City, for a transfer fee of 8 million euros (£ 5.6 million). Even in the first season, he was a major contributor to the new club’s Premier League championship. Leicester and coach Ranieri also have to admit that although he does not want to lose Kante, it seems to be an impossible task when Chelsea presents a 5-year contract for a salary of £ 120,000 / week and a transfer fee of 30 million.
The management of Chelsea and new coach Conte then wanted to try to upgrade the team after a poor season of Stamford Bridge. Previously “The Blues” officially had a rookie, which is Belgian striker Michy Batshuayi from Marseille for £ 33 million. They need an expert to intercept the midfield and the “Tiny Monster” is the perfect piece.
A race started
L’Equipe revealed Chelsea could sell N’golo Kante during the summer 2020 transfer window if they receive € 70 million. Meanwhile, Real Madrid with PSG and Juventus are moving to recruit the French midfielder.
Kante’s contract with Chelsea will expire in 2023. Real Madrid and PSG are both capable of paying the full amount required by Chelsea. And Juventus wants to exchange Miralem Pjanic, Daniele Rugani or Alex Sandro with Chelsea to reduce the transfer fee.
Coach Maurizio Sarri is believed to want to recruit Kante to upgrade the Juventus squad next season. However, the Allianz team is not able to make big deals this summer due to the limited transfer budget.
According to Football Italia, the Turin team is ready to spend a bunch of players in return for the service of Kante, including Miralem Pjanic, Daniele Rugani or Alex Sandro.
Kante is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world at the moment. He has been an important part of the Chelsea squad since joining in the summer of 2016. However, this season, he did not play regularly due to injuries and did not match the tactical scheme that coach Frank Lampard construction.
In an interview with Goal recently, former player Gustavo Poyet said that Kante was underperforming because Lampard was not in the right position.
“In important matches, Lampard often uses the midfield trio of Kante, Jorginho and Kovacic,” Poyet said. “In his first season with Chelsea, Kante was rated as one of the best defensive midfielders in the world. Over time, he was pushed to the” No. 8 “position and became a normal player.”
Kante won the Premier League with Leicester City in the 2015/16 season. A year later, he went on to win the Premier League title but was in the Chelsea shirt.
Arsenal also joined the race to sign the player who has played the Premier League for 5 years. The fact that Kanté has only 1 year contract with Chelsea is a weakness for the bargain giants for the price of 70 million euros that this London team offers. Who will get the contract with this “Tiny Monster”, Juventus, Real Madrid or Arsenal?
