N’Golo Kante deal to Chelsea has been complete

London, England – Leicester midfielder N’Golo Kante deal to Chelsea is close to being complete, with a medical pending within 48 hours, Mohamed Bouhafsi from RMC Sport confirms.

The move is said to be around 36 million euros on a five-year-contract.

Kante has informed Leicester he wants to move to Stamford Bridge after Claudio Ranieri said it was up to the midfielder to choose. A few details need to be finalized before the transfer is announced but Chelsea’s manager, Antonio Conte, has been in touch with the France international to welcome him.

“We offered a new contract to him, he went away because he wanted to finish Euro 2016, and now there is so much speculation around him,” said Ranieri.

“I don’t want to lose him but I can understand if he wants to go.

“I would like now to be sure who stays with me or not, because the friendly matches start now and I have to start to manage and change and try things.”

His Premier League performances alerted the likes of Arsenal, PSG and Real Madrid but he was determined to stay in England.

Kante was signed from Caen a year ago for around 6.6 million euros. He will be the first significant member of their title-winning squad to depart, Jamie Vardy having chosen to reject a move to Arsenal.
