Saudi Ambassadors reach London to LURE veteran Chelsea midfielder with €100m offer
Saudi representatives have reached London to talk to Chelsea midfielder.
Chelsea star N’Golo Kante is on the radar of Saudi clubs and they are ready to present a big offer to the 32-year-old midfielder. Meanwhile, Kante is keen to stay in West London.
According to the transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano, the salary bid could reach €100m inclusive of the image rights & commercial deals. At present, Al Ittihad and Al Nassr are in the race to sign the Frenchman. Al Ittihad recently signed his former France teammate Karim Benzema who left Real Madrid.
N’Golo Kante is currently one of the best midfielders in Europe and his contract with the Blues is set to expire in the summer. His future at Stamford Bridge is uncertain. The 32-year-old is getting interest from the top two clubs of the Saudi Pro League. As per reports, their representatives have arrived in London to have a discussion on a potential Saudi move.
Al Ittihad is taking charge in the pursuit of Kante. They already found a new striker in Karim Benzema and they want to boost their midfield option with the signing of Kante. Karim Benzema was offered a three-year deal worth £258million and he left Real Madrid to become another star player to play in Saudi after Ronaldo.
Kante wants to stay with Chelsea but if he fails to agree on new terms with the Blues, then he will choose the Saudi club which is offering a huge amount. Mauricio Pochettino become the new Chelsea boss and it’s important to see how he plans his squad. Earlier few reports said that Al Ittihad and Kante’s camp had a talk few days ago and the aim is for an agreement to be reached as soon as possible.
