According to The Athletic via Daily Express, ex-Chelsea players Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard have told Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane that N’Golo Kante is the type of player Real Madrid needs.
Both players won the Premier League title with Kante in 2017 during their time with Chelsea.
Zinedine Zidane has long been a Kante admirer and would love to welcome his compatriot to the Bernabeu despite Real Madrid having Brazilian midfielder Casemiro.
Zidane feels Kante would inject energy into his Real Madrid team.
Chelsea are under no pressure to let Kante go after he signed a contract extension back in November, a deal that made him Chelsea’s highest earner.
Meanwhile, Spanish media outlet Defensa Central has claimed Real Madrid have a gentleman agreement with Chelsea regarding Kante.
The report claims the Blues have reportedly agreed to let Real Madrid know should they decide to put the 28-year-old up for sale.
The Blues reportedly reached this agreement with Real Madrid because of Real’s good behaviour during the summer. Real did not push or bully Chelsea into selling Hazard during the summer.
