Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane wants to sign N’Golo Kante from Chelsea FC next summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Athletic, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that the Spanish giants have already added the 28-year-old midfielder to their wish-list for next year.

Kante is widely regarded as one of European football’s top holding midfielders and he has been a regular fixture in the Chelsea FC side since signing for the Blues from Leicester City back in 2016.

The same report claims that Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois have both privately remarked that Kante would be a great signing for the Spanish outfit.

According to the same story, Real Madrid boss Zidane is a long-term admirer of Kante and he remains keen to bring him to the Spanish club next year.

Kante has only started one Premier League game for Chelsea FC so far this season due to injury.

The former Leicester City star has won the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League since his switch to Stamford Bridge back in the summer of 2016, just after he helped the Foxes to win the title.

Meanwhile, Chelsea FC are currently preparing for their trip to Wolves in the Premier League this weekend.
