Mercato: N’Golo Kante snubbed PSG in January

History repeats itself. But it’s too late. defensive midfielder N’Golo Kante He will probably never play for PSG, the club from his region. According to our information, however, the Parisian leaders charged once again in the last days of January to convince the world champion to commit to the club from the capital next season.

Arrived at Chelsea in June 2016, Suresnes’ son is at the end of his contract in just over a year with the Blues. A situation that led PSG to resume contact with N’Golo Kanté. But the international defensive midfielder did not respond to the Parisian proposal. He is happy in England and does not want to go to a city where he would be in great demand.

Originally from Rueil and licensed in Suresnes

Originally from the Géraniums neighborhood in Rueil-Malmaison (Hauts-de-Seine), N’Golo Kanté signed his first license at the age of 11 at JS Suresnes where he played until he was 19. He even played for two years with the pennant team at PH before moving to Boulogne-sur-Mer in 2012 and then knows the fabulous course that we know.

It is not the first time that PSG have been interested in this defensive midfielder, a position that has been missing for too long and more precisely the end of Thiago Motta’s career in 2018. A signing of choice for the Parisian formation in deficit in this game sector.Already in 2016, just after Leicester City’s English champion title, PSG had approached the former Caennais but this ci had favored the London club.

“I chose Chelsea because I like the Premier League and their style of play and when I spoke to the manager (Antonio Conté), I decided to go there and I do not regret my choice, ”said the spoiled supporter of the France national team in our columns. After the title of world champion of the Blues in 2018 where the pocket defensive midfielder had achieved a high quality competition (except in the final where he left at the beginning of the second half due to illness), PSG once again returned to the load but still unsuccessful like so last January.

He won everything in the club.

Absent last Friday from the friendly match between the France team against the Ivory Coast (2-1) because he had left the rally for a few days to go to Mali, the country of his parents, for personal reasons, N’Golo Kanté participated on Tuesday, March 29, in his 52nd game with the Blue against South Africa (5-0) in a friendly for his 31st birthday. He was impeccable in the recovery adding some offensive gestures. He started Olivier Giroud’s second tricolor goal and could have delivered a decisive pass to Kylian Mbappe had the South African goalkeeper not deflected the Paris striker’s shot off his crossbar early in the second half.

Man of the match in both semi-finals (two-leg) and then in the Champions League final last year, N’Golo Kanté won every club competition. He only misses the European Championship with the national team. In a few months, he will have to make a decision about his future. An extension is being considered despite the war waged by Russia in Ukraine and the freezing of the assets of the owner of Chelsea Roman Abramovich from the British government sheds light on the future of the European champion club whose sale could be liquidated at the end of April.
