There’s one big story that the bar staff have been speaking to punters about in the the Football Transfer Tavern all day today, and that’s Chelsea’s claim that they are set to beat European giants, Real Madrid to the signing of one of the best players at the Euros so far this summer.
According to The Mirror, Chelsea believe they are in pole position to sign Leicester and France sensation, N’Golo Kante, this summer ahead of Real Madrid, Arsenal, Man United and Paris Saint-Germain.
The tireless midfielder won countless plaudits last season, after impressing every time he took to the field for Ranieri’s side, often dictating the game from his holding role.
Unfortunately for Leicester, the 25-year-old has a £20m release clause in his contract which our Landlord reckons is an absolute steal for any club looking to sure up their midfield, an even better deal than our spirit and mixer offer during happy hour!
Kante is still with the French side as they prepare for their Quarter Final tie with the Iceland side which dumped England out of the competition on Monday.
Therefore it is unlikely that any deal will be finalised until he returns to Leicester for the pre-season.
