Chelsea manager Graham Potter addresses the contract situation of midfielder N’Golo Kante

Chelsea manager Graham Potter has addressed midfielder N’Golo Kante’s contract predicament, emphasising his priority of getting the player fit.

Kante’s contract at Stamford Bridge is coming to an end. Earlier this season, he declined a verbal offer of an extension, citing reasons for preferring a longer term in the contract.

The Frenchman suffered a hamstring injury against Tottenham Hotspur in the second game of the season and has been out since. The latest information concerning his injuries has been scathing. The 31-year-old is expected to miss many months of activity, which means he will miss France’s World Cup defence in Qatar.

Kante’s injury problems have persisted for the past few seasons. Despite his undeniable talent on the field, the Frenchman’s availability is quickly becoming a stumbling block for the team.

Right now, the focus is on his health, but beginning January 1, the 31-year-old may negotiate with international teams about signing a pre-contract deal.

Should Chelsea take a gamble and provide him the contract he desires? The solution is not based on evidence from the present or recent past. As excellent as he has been over the previous six years, the Frenchman’s age and lack of availability cannot be overlooked.

The greatest answer would be to let the player get in shape, hope that he has a strong second half of the season, and then give him a send-off that everyone will remember. He earns it after helping Chelsea win the Premier League in 2017 and the Champions League in 2021.
