Mario Melchiot has praised N’Golo Kante for his leadership skills in the Chelsea squad, amid speculation the club are set to offer the Frenchman a new contract.

Right now many of the Chelsea players are still enjoying the fact that they beat Manchester City in that Champions League final and once again became Champions of Europe.

Kante has been a player that struggled to really make an impact under the guidance of Frank Lampard at the start of the season, and there was even talk that the club were ready to sell in the January window, or at the end of the season.

The likes of PSG and Barcelona were reportedly very interested in the player, but under the guidance of Thomas Tuchel, Kante has once again flourished and proven that he deserves to be at the club next season.

His current deal ends at the end of 2023, but According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea will open talks with the Frenchman in order to make sure that his current deal is extended at the club

Speaking to TalkSport, the former Blues defender also compared the 30-year-old to another former Blue who was a ‘big brother’, Claude Makelele.

‘You know what I like about Kante?’, Melchiot said. ‘It’s a little bit like what I had with Makelele. They are similar guys in the way they are built.

‘Sometimes they walk next to you and they look like your little brother but the moment they put on the kit they become your big brother.’

‘I feel like Kante is something like that,’ Melchiot added. ‘You see this little guy, you look at him and think “why would I be scared of you?”

‘And then when you are on the field with him you go “oh, this man becomes a giant” and he runs the show.’
