Reports: Paris Saint-Germain eye move for Chelsea superstar
What’s the story?
Paris Saint-Germain want to be the best club in the world and they are ready to do anything in their power to do that. The Ligue 1 side are keen on adding world-class players to their squad and have now set their sights on signing a Chelsea star.
Reports in Le Parisien (via Sport Witness) suggest that PSG are keen on signing N'Golo Kante from Chelsea. The French midfielder has been the best in the world for the last 2 seasons and has won back-to-back Premier League titles.
In case you didn’t know...
Kante has had a stunning turnaround in his career. From playing in the Ligue 2 in 2013 to becoming a Ballon d'Or nominee in 2017 – he's come a long way! The midfielder has won 2 Premier League titles and also the PFA Player of the year award to his name in the last 2 seasons.
The heart of the matter
Breaking the FFP rules to players is nothing new for PSG. They have signed Neymar for a whopping €222 million and are set to spend another €168 million to land Kylian Mbappe on a permanent deal next summer.
However, they are not done spending yet. They want to sign more players who are capable of winning them the Champions League. PSG are keen on becoming the best club in the world and with money being thrown-in from Qatar, they have immense wealth to bring in the best players.
Paris Saint-Germain will make a move for N'Golo Kante in the coming months but are set to be rebuffed by Chelsea. Their bids will not be entertained by the Premier League champions who see Kante as a vital part of their first team.
The Frenchman has been the engine for the London side and will be missing his first game in the Premier League this weekend. He suffered a hamstring injury during the International break and is set to be sidelined for this month.
There is no way Chelsea would be willing to sell Kante. The midfielder is the best at what he does and can't be replaced by anyone.
Chelsea found Bakayoko as an ideal replacement for Matic but no player in the world can replicate what Kante does on the pitch, consistently.
