Kante rejects new Chelsea deal

N’Golo Kanté has turned down a new deal at Chelsea.

The French international’s current contract at Stamford Bridge has less than ten months to run, and, as things currently stand, he will be available to leave on a free transfer.

Negotiations between the two parties have now broken down, because Kanté is looking for a longer-term deal than the West London club are currently prepared to offer him.

Chelsea’s reluctance stems from the fact that he is now 31 years old, and that, in recent seasons, he has become increasingly injury prone.

Should he leave the club he will not want for offers, with at least two Premier League clubs, plus a number from abroad, already expressing interest.

It remains to be seen whether the arrival of new manager Graham Potter makes any difference to Kanté, and others in a similar situation. The ex-Brighton man has yet to take charge of a game following the fixture hiatus following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
