Chelsea are reportedly considering N’Golo Kante’s future at Stamford Bridge after an injury-hit campaign.
The 29 year old has struggled with injuries this season and has been limited to just 22 appearances in all competitions.
According to 90Min, the Chelsea board are beginning to consider Kante’s future, despite his current contract having three years left to run.
While the Chelsea hierarchy are happy to keep Kante at the club, it is claimed the board are ready to sell on the condition that an acceptable offer is tabled.
Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are interested in signing the 29-year-old midfielder and Chelsea are reportedly ready to sell the France international if an acceptable offer is tabled.
Meanwhile, former Chelsea star Gus Poyet believes Chelsea boss Frank Lampard isn’t getting the best out of Kante because he has been playing the World Cup winner in the wrong position.
Speaking to Goal, Poyet said: “In very important games Lampard went with Kante, Jorginho and [Mateo] Kovacic until the last month with injuries.
“Those are the three most experienced players who played under Sarri but now they play with more freedom, especially in Jorginho having more possibilities to move around to go sideways and forward. Last year, he was very static. There are plenty of options.
“In Kante’s first year, he came to Chelsea and I made it public that he is the best central midfielder in the world. After a previous season as a number eight in that different position, we lost how important and unique he was as a player.
“I hope he can get back to that. In his best position, he is unique and there’s not many players that can give you what he can do right now.”
