European Champions Real Madrid have reportedly joined Paris St-German in the race to capture France international N’Golo Kante this summer.
The Los Blancos are hoping to improve their midfield’s quality during the 2018-19 season and they have developed an interest in the Frenchman due to his impressive stats which portray him as one of the best defensive midfielders in the.
Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui believes the Frenchman will bring diversity and strength to his team at the middle of the pitch in the upcoming season.
According to Spanish media outlet Don Balon, the former Spain, national team coach has told Florentino Perez to ensure he beat PSG to the player’s signature.
Paris St-German manager Thomas Tuchel is hoping he could lure the former Leicester City man to the Parc Des Princes Stadium this summer.
Tuchel has been charged by the club’s hierarchy to win next season’s Champions League competition and he is hoping he could complete his move for the Chelsea midfielder so as to lay claim for the European title.
The report also claims that Brazilian defender Casemiro is unhappy with the rumours linking the Los Blancos team to Kante’s services and he could be moving out of Santiago Bernabeu before the end of the current campaign.
However, nothing has been confirmed yet as regards to the player’s future at Stamford Bridge. Roman Abramovich is keen on keeping Kante beyond next season as he is reportedly preparing a new deal for him so as to chase away suitors from his signature.
