N’Golo Kante could be re-uniting with former teammate Eden Hazard at Real Madrid.
Chelsea and Real Madrid have reportedly held discussions regarding the future of midfielder N’Golo Kante.
The 28-year-old has enjoyed a successful three-year period at Stamford Bridge, helping the Blues to the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League during his time at the club.
However, the France international has continually been linked with a move elsewhere, including to Real who now have compatriot Zinedine Zidane back as head coach.
While no transfer materialized during the most recent transfer window, The Athletic report serious interest from the Spanish giants for summer 2020, while Spanish outlet Defensa Central claims that a gentleman’s agreement has been agreed. The report says that Chelsea agreed to notify Real if they receive any big-money bids for Kante, while also indicating that they would make the La Liga outfit aware if the player ever expressed a desire to take on a new challenge.
Kante still has just under four years left on his contract at the West Londoners, and it is thought that he will remains loyal to Chelsea, and that Real Madrid will respect the Premier League club’s position until the season is over.
According to The Athletic‘s story, however, a Bernabeu source is alleged to have told the outlet that “there is already concern about how the campaign will go”.
