N’Golo Kante makes clear statement on his Chelsea FC future
N'Golo Kante has insisted that he is happy at Chelsea FC after reported interest from PSG
N’Golo Kante has said that he rebuffed the opportunity to join Paris Saint-Germain to stay at Chelsea FC because he feels comfortable at the west London club.
Kante is widely regarded as one of European football’s top holding midfielders and he has already twice won the Premier League title, once with Chelsea FC and once with Leicester City.
The 28-year-old has struggled with a string of niggling injuries this season but he has still managed to score three goals in six Premier League games for Frank Lampard’s Chelsea FC side.
Kante has long been touted as a potential target for French side Paris Saint-Germain, but the midfielder has always ended up staying at the west London club.
Now, the World Cup winner has lifted the lid on why he has opted to stay at Chelsea FC despite the reported interest in him from PSG.
Speaking in an interview with Canal+, as quoted by the Daily Express, Kante said: “Sometimes we do not necessarily know where we want to go. But we know what we have.
“I know I was in Chelsea and I was good there.
“If I did not want to come to PSG it was more a sporting choice.
“I felt good in London, in the project and I was happy to stay there.”
Kante will be hoping to feature for Chelsea FC when the Blues take on Valencia in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
The Blues will then return to Premier League action with a home clash against West Ham United on Saturday afternoon.
