Chelsea News: PSG on alert as N’Golo Kante’s relationship with Sarri is not at its best
What's the story?
Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante's strained relationship with the Maurizio Sarri can lead to the Frenchman leaving the club.
In case you didn't know..
Kante joined Premier League club Leicester City in 2015 and guided them to the first Premier League title ever in 2016.
After the success with the Foxes, Chelsea signed the midfielder that proved to be the masterstroke. Kante, in his first season with Chelsea, helped them win the Premier League title. He also won the World Cup with France in 2018.
Sarri was appointed as head coach of Chelsea last season after the sacking of Antonio Conte. France superstar Kante has failed to live up to his expectations as Sarri has played the midfielder out of his position in a more attack-minded role.
PSG were linked with the move for the 27-year-old midfielder in the summer, but the move failed to materialize. Kante even admitted that the PSG made contact with him but he made clear that he had no intention to leave Chelsea.
The heart of the matter
Paris Saint Germain are said to reignite the interest in Chelsea midfielder this summer, according to French outlet Le10sport.
The reports suggest that that the relationship between Kante and Sarri is not thought to be strong. Kante would be a great addition to PSG, who are searching for a midfielder to strengthen their squad.
Rumor rating: 3/10
Le10sport is quite a reliable source when it comes to rumors in France but nothing can be said about Kante's move to PSG. Kante will keep his options open if Sarri keeps playing him in his unfavoured position.
Chelsea travels to Etihad on Sunday when they face the league leaders Manchester City in the most exciting fixture of the Premier League weekend. The Blues would want to win the game, which will boost their hopes of finishing in the top four.
