N’Golo Kanté is on the verge of making Chelsea history, and you can’t say he doesn’t deserve it.

The money in football nowadays is ridiculous, we know what the current climate is like. We can sit around and moan about it, or we can adapt and not fall behind our rivals. It looks as though the club are prepared to do the latter.

The Telegraph report that Kanté is on the verge of signing a contract extension with Chelsea. The World Cup winner will earn somewhere in the region of £300K-a-week after signing on the dotted line, per the report.

If the Telegraph’s information is right, Kanté will become the highest paid player in Chelsea’s history. Considering he’s one of the best players ever to pull on the shirt, we have no qualms.

If Hazard does end up extending his contract too, you get the feeling that he could reclaim his crown as our highest-paid player. We’ll have to wait and see…
