Forget it! Chelsea to offer £100 million Frenchman Kante whopping £290,000-a-week contract
Reports have claimed Chelsea will offer midfielder N’Golo Kante a whopping £290,000-a-week contract to stay at Stamford Bridge.
Regarded as one of the best central midfielders in world football, Kante has become an integral part of the Blues starting eleven, protecting the back-line but also adding to the attack with his passing ability and powerful runs.
However, there has been some speculation in the media as of late which have claimed PSG are ready to swoop in and offer him a way home to France, where he has previously stated he would like to go one day.
But the Sun on Sunday has claimed the Blues have offered Kante a massive £15 million a year contract to stay at the club, and make him the highest paid at Stamford Bridge, with reports Eden Hazard will not be signing a new contract to stay as he wants a switch to Spanish giants Real Madrid.
The contract offer would double his current wage at Stamford Bridge and also take him over the £220,000-a-week contract Eden Hazard is currently receiving.
Kante admitted last month there had been contact with PSG, but insisted he was happy at Chelsea, stating: ‘There was not a big desire on my side to go elsewhere after the World Cup. There was interest from other clubs, but after speaking with Chelsea, things were clear.
‘The club is counting on me and I feel good here. What was logical therefore was to stay at Chelsea. There were some discussions with PSG. But after a discussion with Chelsea I understood that what was most important was to feel good where I was.
‘I feel good at Chelsea. It is good for me to stay at Chelsea.’
Will Kante sign the Chelsea offer, here is what we think.
Alongside Eden Hazard, Kante is one of the most important players at the club and keeping hold of him for the immediete future will be a massive boost to the club and the fans, but it will not all the speculation surrounding the Frenchman’s future and signing a new deal means nothing these days.
So even if he does sign a new contract, it will not stop PSG making a huge offer to try and get a deal done.
