N’Golo Kante, a midfielder for Chelsea, has been linked to a move to Manchester United this week.
This summer, United will aim to add a specialized defensive midfielder, and Kante most definitely fits the bill. Erik ten Hag is organizing the club’s rebirth, and many fresh acquisitions are anticipated from the Dutchman in the next months.
According to rumors, United is contemplating signing Kante as part of their summer roster revamp. Thomas Tuchel reportedly wants to revamp his midfield as Kante’s contract at Stamford Bridge ends in the summer of 2023.
Opinion: This summer at Manchester United, Mike Phelan is giving Erik ten Hag what he needs.
One of the best defensive midfielders in Europe for a long time is Kante. The Frenchman is still an important player for Chelsea this season despite having won the World Cup, the Champions League, and two Premier League championships in his career.
This season, the 31-year-old made 42 appearances for Chelsea, and questions regarding his future have been posed to him constantly. Here is everything Kante has said regarding his future this season and possible summer transfer to Old Trafford.
When asked about his long-term plans last summer, Kante said that he wasn’t concentrating on them.
“I’ve been at Chelsea for five years, and I’ve had great seasons. I want to have a lot more, Kante remarked. “I’m not concentrating on it at all. I feel optimistic about the remaining two years of my Chelsea deal.
When questioned about his future, Kante has always kept his cards close to his chest, and he did so once again two months ago. Kante told reporters, “Since I’ve been here, I’ve had many wonderful seasons, with the club, the coaches, and the supporters.
“I hope we can keep winning, and that’s how I view the future,” he said.
Kante acknowledged that he will weigh his alternatives as his Chelsea contract is set to enter its last year. The only thing that is certain is that I have one more year left, and the sole goal is to complete this season, according to Kante.
I’ll give it some thought when the moment is appropriate.
This summer, it’s anticipated that United would add a central defender, a defensive midfielder, and a central striker.
