- Midfielder’s contract is expiring
What’s the news?
According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, there are currently some delegates from Saudi Arabia negotiating with N’Golo Kante. The French midfielder has an expiring contract with Chelsea and could now make a move to the Middle East. It is currently unclear which club is involved, but there are rumors that Kante could sign with Al-Nassr or Al-Ittihad.
Kante has suffered from numerous injuries in the past two seasons and has only managed to play a handful of matches for Chelsea. The midfielder has an expiring contract and has been in talks with the London club since March to extend it for at least two more years. A potential contract offer from the Middle East could change the situation.
According to rumors, Kante has received an offer of at least 100 million euros for two seasons. This amount does not include the player’s image rights and commercial contracts. If the transfer goes through, Kante could earn around 50 to 75 million euros per year.
Kante’s contract expires at the end of June, and so far, nothing is known about his future at Chelsea. Recently, the French international expressed his desire to stay at the club and has declined negotiations with other clubs so far. It is unknown whether Kante is open to a transfer to Saudi Arabia.
