Chelsea bosses have slapped a jaw-dropping £100million price tag on N’Golo Kante’s head, as the Ligue 1 club PSG show interest in signing him, according to Goal.
The English news website claims that PSG is considering using Adrien Rabiot to tempt Chelsea into selling the France international, who is currently valued at £100million.
It is understood that PSG have made it their priority to land Kante, and they are willing to offer the Chelsea star a deal worth £220,000-a-week.
Good move for Chelsea?
Kante is one of the best players in the world, not just the Premier League, and no sum of money is going to guarantee what the Frenchman already brings.
The stability through the middle of the park that Kante brings is such a rare commodity, and you can’t really put a price on it.
Rabiot is a fine player and will continue to grow, but he is not at the same level as Kante, and would not serve as a good replacement either.

Likely to happen?
I don’t think so.
The interest from France looks genuine, and Kante himself might fancy the move has won almost everything there is to win in England.
But Chelsea simply cannot afford to lose the France international’s services, despite the £100million sum, as there is nobody there to replace him with the same effect.
It would make for one eye-watering team in Paris, with Kyllian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani, and Neymar Jr already there, but Chelsea would not want to let him go.
Chelsea players set for monster clash in World Cup after epic Thursday
Chelsea’s two largest sets of players still in the World Cup are set for a monster game in the semi finals after yesterday’s results.
Belgium beat Brazil, booting out Willian but keeping Thibaut Courtois, Eden Hazard and Michy Batshuayi in the tournament.
Meanwhile, N’Golo Kante and Olivier Giroud dispatched Uruguay with a really impressive performance.
That means the four of them will play in the semis, in what promises to be a festival of football just like yesterday was, with a tasty warmup of France’s potential was followed by an exceptional match in Brazil Belgium, where the Penta-champions weren’t able to handle an Eden Hazard led the attack.
It sets us up for one Chelsea heavy semi, with another possible if Gary Cahill and RLC’s England beat Sweden. You can even add Russia’s Aleksandr Golovin, soon to join the club, to the list.
Whatever happens, we’ll have at least two Blues in the final.
