As his contract expires next June and FC Barcelona is interested in him, N’Golo Kante has reportedly made a decision about his future at Chelsea.
Given their recent financial difficulties, FC Barcelona is expected to target players whose contracts are expiring in an effort to limit spending. Among the profiles being considered by Barça is N’Golo Kante, whose contract with Chelsea will end next June. This would be an excellent opportunity for the Blaugranas to acquire the French defensive midfielder for free this summer, allowing them to strengthen their team while keeping expenses under control.
Since his arrival at Chelsea from Leicester in 2016 for a hefty fee of 36 million euros, the 2018 World Cup winner has the freedom to leave the club and join any team of his choice at the end of the season. While FC Barcelona and other top European teams have shown interest in the 31-year-old midfielder, N’Golo Kante appears to have made a decision regarding his future in the Premier League.
FC Barcelona Mercato : N’Golo Kanté should extend his stay at Chelsea
The trend was leaning towards a free transfer this summer, but N’Golo Kanté could ultimately move away from FC Barcelona and stay at Chelsea next season. That’s what Foot Mercato claims, explaining that the player is on the verge of extending his contract with the Blues. A very bad news for Barça, who made the French midfielder one of the priorities for the next summer transfer window.
Therefore, according to the online media, FC Barcelona will have to find other options in midfield, since N’Golo Kanté could sign his new contract with Chelsea in the next few hours. This new deal would link him to the London club until 2027, a real show of confidence from his club, which should motivate him to snub the Blaugranas and stay in England.
