Report: Juventus to battle Real Madrid for N’Golo Kante

Chelsea are reportedly bracing themselves for offers from Juventus and Real Madrid for midfielder N’Golo Kante.

The France international has long been considered a target Los Blancos, who have money to spend this summer following an underwhelming campaign this time around.

Despite being fielded out of position under Maurizio Sarri, used in a right of centre role in midfield, Kante agreed to sign a new deal in November that makes him one of the best-paid players in the Premier League.

Tuttosport claims that Real still hold a serious interest in the 27-year-old, however, and Juventus are also now in the running to sign him.

Juve have already agreed a deal to sign Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal when his contract expires in the summer, but the Italian giants supposedly want a new holding player to complete their squad.

Kante has appeared 35 times for Chelsea in all competitions this season and was part of France’s triumphant World Cup squad last year.
