Chelsea ‘to make N’Golo Kante their highest earner after offering France midfielder £290,000-a-week deal to stave off interest from PSG’

Chelsea has offered to double N’Golo Kante’s money and make him their highest-paid player in a bid to keep him out of the grasp of Paris Saint-Germain.

The central midfielder’s stock has risen since he moved to Stamford Bridge, where he won the Premier League in his first season.

He was also an integral part of Didier Deschamps’ World Cup winning squad in Russia this summer and The Times claim he has been rewarded with a new deal worth £15million a season over five years.
