Chelsea fans may be in for a tough time this summer, the Blues know that losing Eden Hazard is a very possible outcome of a hectic silly season. Rumours from The Mirror that claim N’Golo Kante could also be off, though, are being rubbished by the fans who are in no doubt that their French workhorse will be sticking around this summer.

N’Golo Kante is one of the best players in the Premier League, and whilst he’s made a name for himself as a world-class defensive midfielder, winning the ball back with his relentless running, tackling and interceptions, this season has seen him used in a more unorthodox position. Maurizio Sarri fancies Kante a little bit further up the pitch, and it’s seen the Blues come 3rd and reach two finals this season.
The Stamford Bridge faithful are all well aware that Hazard is going to be off and they have no power in stopping that, but if they were to lose both Hazard and Kante in the same window without being able to recruit as they have an impending transfer ban then they may as well write off next season already. The Blues do have hop that Kante will stay, but in football, anything can happen, and with PSG interested they could be faced with a monstrous bid for the midfielder.
