N’Golo Kante confirms PSG approach


Chelsea midfielder, N’Golo Kante, has confirmed Paris Saint German’s showed genuine interest in signing him.

The 27-year-old was the subject of a mammoth offer from the Ligue 1 holders after impressing at last summer’s World Cup with France.

Kante played a crucial role as Les Bleues defied all odds to be crowned champions.

The ex-Leicester City star says PSG made contact over a potential move to the Parc des Princes but insists he is happy to remain at Stamford Bridge under Maurizio Sarri.

“There was no urge to go elsewhere after the World Cup,” Kante told RMC Sport.

“There were other clubs’ interests but after talking to Chelsea, things were clear. The club is counting on me and I feel good. The next logical step was to continue to Chelsea.

“There were some contacts [from PSG]. But after a discussion with Chelsea, I realised that the main thing was to feel good where I was.

“I am at Chelsea. It’s good for me to stay at Chelsea.”

Kante, the PFA Player Of The Year two years ago joined Chelsea in the summer of 2016 from Leicester for £32 million, having been an integral part of their incredible Premier League title-winning campaign.

He transferred that champions mentality to the Bridge, helping Antonio Conte to the league title on his first year on the job.
