“Free to go” – Chelsea unwilling to match £290k-a-week star contract demands

According to Tutto Juve (via Sport Witness), three elite Serie A clubs have expressed interest in signing Chelsea player N’Golo Kante. The source claims that AC Milan, Juventus, and Inter Milan are all monitoring the French midfielder right now.

Before suffering a catastrophic hamstring injury, Kante started Chelsea’s opening two Premier League games of the year. Kante might miss nearly a month of football, according to former coach Thomas Tuchel, who was fired by the board (via Mirror). Before October, it’s unlikely that the player will be in fighting shape.

As per The Athletic (via football.london), Todd Boehly’s side have tabled a verbal offer to extend Kante’s stay, proposing a two-year contract with the option of adding a third. The 2018 World Cup winner has supposedly turned it down, as he wants a three-year deal.

Even though Kante is having difficulty, Juventus, Inter, and Milan are all allegedly interested in signing the former Leicester City player.

Juventus, led by Massimiliano Allegri, reportedly thinks Kante would be the ideal addition to their midfield. The Bianconeri seek to bolster their midfield with the 2020-21 Champions League victor after Manuel Locatelli had a challenging start to the 2022–23 season.

The Old Lady reportedly wish to pair Kante up with his countryman Paul Pogba in the middle of the pitch. It is believed that signing Kante would help them maintain their stature as one of the biggest clubs in Italy.

Kante has not yet indicated that Chelsea will be his long-term club. His current contract expires in June 2023, therefore he can begin contract negotiations with other teams as early as January.

Kante has played in 262 games for the team in all competitions since joining from Leicester in the summer of 2016. He has 13 goals and 15 assists. Kante has won numerous awards with the Blues, including the Premier League championship, the Europa League trophy, and a Champions League trophy.
