Manchester United will become Premier League title challengers if they sign Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante according to Premier League player Andros Townsend.
In a chat with Talksport, Crystal Palace winger Andros Townsend said that French World Cup winner Kante would be a perfect fit for Manchester United.
According to him, N’Golo Kante is one of the best defensive midfielders in the game at the moment and that he will provide the foundation for Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes to flourish in the Manchester United midfield.

Kante had an injury filled campaign last season and that restricted him to just 22 appearances in the league. He scored three goals in those games.
He has been linked with a move away from Chelsea this summer with the likes of Inter Milan and Real Madrid said to be interested in signing him.
Manchester United have already made a midfield signing this summer with the £40m capture of young midfielder Donny Van De Beek.
He has been at Ajax Amsterdam until this week when his transfer to the Red Devils was confirmed officially.
The Dutch player will wear the no. 34 shirt at Old Trafford in honour of his friend Abdelhak Nouri who has been battling with brain damage since 2017.
