N’Golo Kante rejects new Chelsea contract offer
French midfielder, N’Golo Kante, has rejected Chelsea’s new contract proposal, with the 2018 World Cup winner unhappy at the length of the deal on offer.
Kante is out of contract in less than a year’s time, having failed to agree new terms with the Blues.
Thomas Tuchel spoke openly about the situation with Kante before he was sacked and suggested that the Frenchman has to compromise over any contract extension because of his injury problems.
Kante has been sidelined regularly over the last two years but he remains the club’s highest paid player.
He wants to stay at Stamford Bridge but the club are only offering him an initial two-year deal, with the option of a further 12 months.
And according to The Athletic Kante has rejected the club’s proposal and he is holding out for a longer deal.
It comes as two Premier League sides show interest in Kante, with the midfielder free to speak to other clubs from January 1, 2023.
The France international is renowned for his tireless work on the pitch, with former manager Frank Lampard staggered by the ground he covered despite minimal training in the Super Cup last month.
And the Reddit fan added: “Kante is clearly the fittest player in the Premier League, and arguably in the world.
“His French team mate Pogba has even been quoted as saying “N’Golo Kante has 15 Lungs”.
“Kante covers the most ground ahead of his team mates and doesn’t appear to tire out even when playing in extra time.”
