Emissaries from Saudi Arabia have traveled to London to present an official bid to N’Golo Kante as his contract at Chelsea expires this month.
The 32-year-old defensive midfielder is believed to want to stay at Stamford Bridge beyond this summer but with contract talks stalling whilst new manager Mauricio Pochettino plans his clear out of players at the club, Kante may not have that many options on the table.
Kante offered big money move to Saudi Arabia
According to Italian transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Saudi Arabian sides Al Ittihad and Al Nassr have both offered deals worth in the region of $106m, which includes image and commercial rights.

The World Cup winner was thought to be close to tying up a new deal with Chelsea back in March but with the Frenchman’s contract set to expire in just three weeks, Kante’s future at Stamford Bridge looks very uncertain now two concrete offers have been submitted which would increase the two-time Premier League winner’s wages significantly.
