PSG have identified Chelsea superstar N’Golo Kante as a potential target ahead of the summer transfer window
He has been fantastic for his team over the last few years, and he is perhaps their finest midfielder in that time.
At the end of this season, Kante will enter the final year of his current contract with the Blues. This has piqued the interest of a number of teams, including Paris Saint-Germain. They may make a transfer move after this season in order to entice him away from their rivals.
The French club has been waiting for the 30-year-contract old’s to expire for some time. That is what will happen next summer, which might cause problems for Thomas Tuchel’s team. His current salary at Stamford Bridge is roughly £300,000 per week.
Chelsea’s regular transfer strategy is to not provide long-term contracts to players in their thirties. In most circumstances, this is understandable, but the Frenchman should not be included in this group. Furthermore, football has progressed significantly during the last decade, and more players have extended their playing careers above the age of 35.
Thiago Silva is one such case, and he has yet to exhibit indications of deterioration. That may be why we chose to extend his existing deal for another year. Fortunately, it appears that the West London club is willing to make an exception for the former Leicester City player.
