Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Man Utd boss

Manchester United have signed a top midfielder in the form of Donny van de Beek but reports suggest that they would be interested in luring another midfield player if he becomes available.

The player in discussion is none other than French international and Chelsea star N’Golo Kante.

Transfer: Man Utd ready to officially move to finally sign £9.8million-a-year star – Report

According to The Mail, Solskajer needs a play breaker, someone as good as Caemiro at Real Madrid, and Man United would jump at the chance of signing Kante if the Blues give them encouragement to move.

If reports in the media are anything to go by then the former Leicester City star could be available.

The Stamford Bridge outlet have splashed a lot of cash to strengthen the team this summer. Now, reports suggest that they are looking to raise funds from player sales (The Express) and have slappled a mammoth price tag of £80million on the Frenchman.

He was a key member of the Foxes’ squad that won the Premier League in 2016 under Claurdio Ranieri. A year later, he deservedly won the PFA Player of the Year award after consistent top quality performances in Chelsea’s title winning season.

The 29-year-old played in every game for the Les Bleus in their World Cup winning campaign back in 2018.

The dilemma at Old Trafford is that United do have several midfield options but they lack a an engine, someone, who’ll consistently press and break opponent’s play in the center of the park. Matic is past his best and the Serbian is too slow. In such a scenario, Kante, who is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world, would be a world class addition.

The 39-capped international’s current contract with Chelsea will expire in 2023 and he earns around £290,000-a-week (The Mail). In your view, should Man United splash the cash to sign N’Golo Kante this summer?


  1. Why are football players not stopping the agents and their team management from taking full control of the player’s wishes and desires? The player should exercise his right if being honest about his transfer and move to the club he likes to go to and if he wants to really make it possible and not by solely looking at the financial gain. Even if negotiations are on by accepting a bit of cuts in order to prove that his main aim is to play with passion for the thrill of the fans and to give them their satisfaction and restore the club of its former glory. Thus winning the hearts of the fans and by becoming a hero just like a player like Bruno Fernandez and Ighalo who are there for a reason best known for the club. It is a passion of their feelings to stay at a club they had dreamt to play at. So very specially admired.

  2. It is bad to see players like Sanchez playing for a club like Man.Utd., his respect for the club who was paying him a hefty sum of wages was not in anyway valuable. Clearly with no disrespect I would say that the player was there for the money. His frustration is now getting the better of him by the way he is reacting to his transfer issue. Some great players are to there to put their stamps as heros of football history.
