This significant £40 million transfer decision will be made by Todd Boehly.
N’Golo Kante, a midfielder for Chelsea, reportedly wants to stay with the team for a longer period of time and is unlikely to accept Chelsea’s new contract extension offer.
The current Chelsea owners are only willing to give Kante a two-year contract with an option for an additional year, contrary to the three-plus-one-year contract he had agreed with the previous owners.
The new Chelsea ownership is eager to reach an agreement with Kante on a new contract because his current deal expires in the summer of 2023.
If a deal is not already in place, Kante might start speaking with other teams in January.
Pete O’Rourke predicts that Kante won’t be short of options and that the potential buyers will need to make a critical choice over whether to acquire the business.
According to O’Rourke, who spoke to GIVEMESPORT, “Chelsea, like many of the top clubs, aren’t that keen on handing players above the age of 30 long-term contracts, so there’s a significant decision to be made by Chelsea in respect to Kante’s deal.
There won’t be a shortage of takers for the Frenchman if he declines and decides to move somewhere, I’m sure of it.
Kante is unstoppable when in peak form. The 31-year-old, nevertheless, has developed a propensity for injuries over the past two years at Chelsea. Considering that he is already in his 30s, the new owners may want to be wary of signing a long-term contract.
