More recently, reports indicate that Man Utd submitted a lucrative offer to sign the Les Bleus midfielder, who has now made a decision on his future.
According to Spanish source, Nacional, Kante was seemingly close to Barcelona even though the likes of Man Utd, PSG and Al-Nassr made much more attractive offers to hire his services.
However, the Catalan news outlet claim the 31-year-old has decided to stay with the Stamford Bridge outfit and will soon sign an extension.
Kante is one of the most decorated players in the country. He won the title with Leicester City in 2016. A year later, under Conte, the Frenchman won the Premier League with Chelsea and was named the PFA Player of the Year.
The veteran midfielder, who likes to press and break play, was one of the most important members of the France squad that lifted the World Cup and Nations League trophies in 2018 and 2021 respectively.
Moreover, he was brilliant for Chelsea in their Champions League winning campaign two years ago. Kante was named Man of the Match in the final vs Manchester City.
This season, unfortunately, the £290,000 a week star (The Mail) has mainly been on the treatment table, featured in the opening two league games and even missed the World Cup in Qatar due to injury.
In the summer, Man Utd were able to lure a world class DM in the form of Casemiro and the Brazilian international has been immense under Erik ten Hag.
