Kante Signs New Record Chelsea Deal

N’Golo Kante has signed a new contract at Chelsea, the club has confirmed.

The France international has committed to the Blues for the next five years, has been a revelation at Stamford Bridge since his move to the club from Leicester City in 2016.

Kante’s new deal includes a weekly wage of £290,000, with the Blues keen to ward off potential suitors in the midfielder.

His consistency and influence have seen a host of clubs show an interest in him, most notably Paris Saint-Germain, but Kante has little interest in moving back to the city where he grew up.

Kante has won the Premier League and the FA Cup since joining the Blues, having also won the title during his spell at the Foxes.

I’m happy to extend my time with Chelsea, it has been two beautiful years and I wish for more to come,” he told the club’s official website.
