Preparing to play his part in what he hopes will be a World Cup win for France, this Sunday, N’Golo Kante is suddenly becoming the subject of much speculation in the media.
Having already covered the interest expressed by Paris Saint-Germain, Click Here, it now appears that another giant of European football are looking to acquire the services of the 27-year-old.
According to the popular news source, Sky Sports, Barcelona are keen to tempt the player to the Nou Camp.
However, in trying to tempt Chelsea into parting with the best midfielder of his type in world football, the Catalan club are looking at doing a player-plus-cash deal.
As well as offering Chelsea what we hope would be a significant fee, Barcelona are willing to include their 24-year-old Portuguese midfielder, Andre Gomes, in the deal.
Now, hopefully, Chelsea won’t be tempted to sell, Kante is world-class whilst Andre Gomes is merely a bit-part player at Barcelona.
If Chelsea are to climb back to the pinnacle of English football then this isn’t the kind of deal that appeals to me.
If Kante is sold this summer then Chelsea have to get as much cash for the player as possible and let the new management team decide who it is spent upon.
