“Has serious chances to leave as a free agent” – Fabrizio Romano provides fresh transfer update on Chelsea superstar


N’Golo Kante could leave Chelsea as a free agent at the end of his contract in the summer of 2023, as per transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.


The France international has been a highly important member of the Blues team since joining them from Leicester City a little over six years ago. He has won virtually every major club trophy with the Blues during that time.


Kante has been ever-present in every Chelsea manager’s starting XI, be it Antonio Conte, Frank Lampard, or Thomas Tuchel. With 13 goals and 15 assists in 262 appearances across competitions for the Blues, he is a living, breathing legend for the west London outfit.


However, the 31-year-old is on the decline. He hasn’t been helped by the injuries that have seen him miss 64 matches since the start of the 2019-20 season.

He has also made just two appearances this season and has been out due to injuries. Hence, the Blues are in two minds about offering him a long-term deal. Kante is said to want a three-year long contract with the option of a fourth year.


Chelsea’s new regime, led by co-owner Todd Boehly, is willing to offer him a two-year long deal with an option of a third year. This has seen him get linked with London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur as he is reportedly keen to stay in the capital city if he does leave the Blues.


Romano added that the club’s new directors could play a role in potential negotiations with Kante. As per Football.London , Chelsea are still on the hunt for ideal candidates to appoint as key directors, with the technical director role among the vacancies.

Christopher Vivell could be appointed to that position while Luis Campos and Michael Edwards are candidates to become key advisors at the club.
