Chelsea yet to agree new deal for World-Cup winning midfielder

Talks have reportedly stalled between Chelsea and world-cup wining midfielder N’Golo Kante over a new deal.

Although Kante has only made two appearances this term following to injury issues, which have affected his playing time over the last few years, he is still regarded as a key player for the West London giants.

However, the Blues are at risk of losing the France international on a free transfer next summer with less than year left on his current deal.

According to the Daily Mail, talks over a new contract have stalled due to a dispute about the length of the deal.

The former Leicester City midfielder is keen to receive a long-term contract similar to the one that Kalidou Koulibaly signed that keeps him at Stamford Bridge until 2026, however, the Blues have only offered Kante a two-year contract with the option of an additional year.

While the the Blues hierarchy attempt to reach an agreement, after recovering from a hamstring injury, Frenchman could feature in Wednesday’s Champions League team for the home match against AC Milan.
