Chelsea FC have opened negotiations with N’Golo Kante about a potential £200,000-a-week contract, according to a report in England.

The Daily Express is reporting that the France international still has three years left to run on his current deal with the west London side.

The same article states that Chelsea FC want to tie down Kante to a new five-year contract to end speculation surrounding the defensive midfielder’s future.

Kante has been linked with a potential move to Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain in recent months after the Blues missed out on a top-four spot last term.

According to the same story, PSG are facing competition from Serie A title winners Juventus to sign the 27-year-old from FA Cup winner Chelsea FC this summer.

However, the Italian champions could struggle to find the cash to fund a move to sign Kante given the addition of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid on Tuesday evening.

Chelsea FC finished in fifth place behind Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool FC last season despite the French midfielder’s best efforts.

Kante won the Premier League title in successive seasons with Leicester City and Chelsea FC to leave his mark on the English top flight.
