EPL: Is Kante heading to Man United?


Emerging reports hint that want-away Chelsea midfielder, N’Golo Kante might be heading to the Old Trafford ahead of the coming season as Man United have emerged as frontrunners for his signature.

The France international midfielder has been declared as surplus to requirement at the West London club and they are ready to offload him this summer transfer window.

It was earlier reported that N’Golo Kante favours a move to the French Ligue 1 but with the latest report, he could be set for a move to join the Red Devils are they are willing to take advantage of his situation to land him.

Man United still believe in N’Golo Kante as he has only been denied playing time which means he could have his career at the club revived at the Old Trafford.

N’Golo Kante was one of the best players in the English Premier League, winning back-to-back titles with Leicester City and Chelsea in 2016 and 2017 respectively.

The World Cup winner has also made a great mark in the Stamford Bridge, as a ball-winner with the 170 appearances under his belt, in addition to helping to win the Europa League and the FA Cup.

However, the price for N’Golo Kante has not been named by the Blues but they will be waiting for offers to come in.
