Welcome N’Golo Kante


Recommended Posts

N'Golo Kante is set to snub Arsenal, Man Utd and Juventus in favour of a move to Chelsea. [@Matt_Law_DT] #cfc

Kante's believed to fancy working with Conte at Chelsea the most but he's not yet ruled out the possibility of going elsewhere. (Telegraph)

 

Kante wants Conte, Conte wants Kante. It makes total sense.

I am aware that my opinion on Kanté's unadulterated brilliance are probably well-established.

That said, if he does go to Man Utd, there are two questions which must follow:

1) Does this therefore mean that José doesn't rate Schneiderlin?

2) Can we therefore acquire Schneiderlin at a cut-price rate?

Schneiderlin would play next to Kante. He was at his best at Soton when he had Wanyama doing all the grunt work. My tip is Kante will go to United.

may be nothing in it, but we've been linked to lassana diara recently as a reinforcement in midfield, and apparently he was kante's idol when younger. 

Surely we wouldn't consider bringing him back.  He's always rated himself much higher than anyone that's seen him play would rate him.

Kinda strange football world, leave champions league foxes for no European football with Chelsea. Lol

Not that strange really. He's 25, it's not like the window on his career is closing rapidly. He can 'sacrifice' next season for a new start for a team that is highly likely to be back competing at the highest level soon.

Or he could sit it out at Leciester for another year, his form dips, and suddenly these teams sniffing about, go cool on him.

by many accounts he would be coming off a good stint in france, and he's 31 so not that old for a short term contract.

This Kante rumour seems to be gathering some momentum, at least in the English media. I'm cautiously optimistic, because I think with Kante, Cesc could play the Pirlo role if Conte wants to go for a 3-5-2 formation, or if we play two up top Cesc could be one of our central midfielders in a 4-4-2.

Wouldn't get in their side

 

yes he would! he is progressing very well, he has  had a good season in La Liga, also done well last season at Monaco, he should definitely get a PL loan next season as he has shown he has the ability to play in a top league, and Leicester need depth in their squad as they will be in the CL next season

Mourinho must be in his element with all this money at his disposal.

Yeah be like his first stint here. Blank cheque book to build his own team in his style.

Still think they need a few defenders and probably another winger as Depay has been a bit of a flop. They will get them though

Not sure how they managed such a good defensive record last season with kids playing at full back and Blind at CB. A few new players there and they'll be a dangerous side again next year for sure.
