This Sunday the midfield phenomenon that is N’Golo Kante will fulfil a dream few players get the chance to realise, play in a World Cup Final.
Kante will be at the heart of the French midfield that will face either Croatia or England, after a narrow semi-final victory against Belgium.
Against Belgium, Kante gave his usual high standard of performance, keeping the French midfield ticking over.
It’s no surprise that the 27-year-old is viewed with envious eyes by other clubs and Chelsea, it would seem, are well aware that there is interest from the French club, Paris Saint-Germain, Click Here.
To that effect, it is being reported by the news source, the Express, that Chelsea are set to open contract talks with the Frenchman that would see his salary increase to £200,000 a week, this despite his current deal still having three years left to run.
Here at Vital Chelsea, we view this as a very astute move.
With no Champions League football this coming season, it is essential that Chelsea continue to show that they are an ambitious club and retain the world-class players they have on their books.
Kante is unique, there is no other player like him at the moment, he is the epitome of the perfect midfielder, let’s hope he’s happy to put pen-to-paper on the new deal.
