  • N’Golo Kante on the verge of signing contract extension.
  • Kante is thought to be set to bank around £300K-a-week.
  • Is that too much? Let us know what you think @TalkChelsea.

We have some incredible news to bring you courtesy of the Telegraph‘s Matt Law – N’Golo Kante is close to extending his contract with Chelsea.

There have been a lot of speculation on different sports betting sites where he will end up in 2019. Finally it seems like we will have an answer.

Kante’s story is a rather incredible one. The Frenchman only made his top division debut with Caen four-years ago. After signing for Leicester City, he was influential in the Foxes’ 5000/1 Premier League title triumph.

He earned himself a move to the greatest club in the world, Chelsea, where he became the first player ever to win back-to-back Premier League titles with different clubs. Quite the feat!

Kante’s journey didn’t end there. He’s become a mainstay in the France national team, for whom he won the World Cup in the summer. We feared he would use that as a springboard to sign for the PSG’s or Real Madrid’s of this world – but it appears not.

The Telegraph report that Kante is on the verge of putting pen-to-paper on a new contract worth somewhere in the region of £300K-a-week. That would effectively ensure he will be a Chelsea player throughout his prime years.

This is fantastic news from a Chelsea standpoint. Kante has been consistently world-class since signing for us. Without him, we fear where we’d be. Our only concern is, if we’re giving Kante £300K-a-week – how much are we going to need to give Eden Hazard?

There are not many people that are skilled or lucky enough to earn that much money. For regular people it is more likely to be a winner at mobile casinos 2019 than to be a professional football player. However to play at casinos also takes responsible so remember to play safe.
