Spanish La Liga leaders Real Madrid are reportedly plotting a swap deal for key Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante.
This is according to the latest media reports in the United Kingdom which revealed that Real Madrid are keeping tabs on the French World Cup winner.
Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is said to be a big fan of the aforementioned Kante.
According to the specific publication from football365, Real Madrid are ready to do a swap deal to sign the Chelsea player.
It was revealed that the Los Merengues are willing to spend as much as 86 million pounds plus James Rodriguez to sign N’Golo Kante in the New Year.
Real Madrid playmaker James Rodriguez has not seen much action at the club upon his return from a two-year loan spell at German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.
The Colombian could be used as a makeweight in a deal to sign Kante though it remains to be seen whether Chelsea would want to let one of their key players leave the club.
N’Golo Kante is one of the best players at Chelsea and his status is matched on the financial front as well as he’s the highest paid player at the club with 290,000 pounds on a weekly basis.
