Chelsea midfielder N’golo Knate has flagged up interest to renew his contract deal with the West London outfit, with the Blue’s planning to secure the midfielder to another record-breaking £290,000 -a-week deal.
Chelsea are quick to avert potential suitors by compensating the France midfielder with a five-year deal that would be the biggest in the club’s history. The agreement is presently in the hands of attorneys before being authoritatively signed off and declared, but Chelsea are so confident that every formalities will be completed inescapably.
The 27-year old has been earning around £150,000 -a-week since joining from Leicester City in 2016, so his new contract will speak volume in wages.
Having helped Leicester to an unexpected Premier League title in his debut season, he joined Chelsea a year later and repeated the feat under then- Chelsea boss Antonio Conte. And with the arrival of former Napoli manager, Maurizio Sarri has changed Kante’s position from a central midfielder to a more unique role on the right of a midfield three, however, the club is pleased with his match performance and disposition.
His consistency and impact have seen several European top teams shown interest in him, most prominently Paris Saint-Germain, but Kante has little interest in moving back to the city where he grew up.
Kante is likewise not inspired by a move to any Premier League club, with the only alternative other than a Chelsea renewal being a move to one of Spain’s two top clubs – Barcelona or Real Madrid.
This could be Kante’s last big deal with the Stamford Bridge outfit, as the new contract will span for 5 years, which implies he will be 32 at the end of the contract and the club have a policy of only renewing contracts for their over-30s players.
Kante, whose current £150,000 contract expires in 2021, is one of Chelsea’s highest contract renewal priorities, alongside Belgian forward Eden Hazard.
