Chelsea news: N’Golo Kante makes PSG transfer admission | Football | Sport
Kante, who played a key part in France’s winning campaign, could have returned to France to join European giants Paris Saint-Germain, but chose to stay in London.
The PFA Player Of The Year for 2016-17, Kante joined Chelsea in the summer of 2016 from Leicester for £32 million, having been an integral part of their incredible Premier League title-winning campaign.
Since then, reports have circulated that PSG have wanted to bring him back to France, to join their squad of superstars.
Kante confirmed that the clubs had been in communication, but that he had no interest in leaving.
“There was no particular desire to go somewhere after the World Cup,” Kante told RMC Sport.
“There were other clubs’ interests but after talking to Chelsea, things were clear.
“The club is counting on me and I feel good.
“The next logical step was to continue with Chelsea.
“There was some contact with PSG, yes.
“However, after a discussion with the club, I realised that the main thing for me was to feel good where I was then and am now.
“I am with Chelsea – staying with Chelsea is good for me.”
PSG boss Thomas Tuchel confirmed on Wednesday that he was trying to sign a player like Kante, to replace the retiring Thiago Motta.
Tuchel confirmed: “We were trying to replace Thiago Motta. For a No 6 at PSG, you are looking for talent, a very big personality.
“We could not do it. In the end we ran out of time.”
