Earlier, Romano predicted that “two clubs, Al Ittihad and Al Nasr, visited London to sign a contract with Kante,” and “the total contract size will reach 100 million euros (approximately 139 billion won).”

“The Al Ittihad board is meeting with Kante’s agent,” said Kante, adding that Kante will sign a contract worth 100 million euros per season until June 2025.

Kante, who played an active role as the world’s best defensive midfielder, has recently lost his shine due to a series of injuries. He suffered two hamstring injuries this season, limiting him to nine appearances. 

Meanwhile, Kante’s contract with Chelsea expires at the end of June. During the season, there were reports of contract renewal negotiations, but it seems that the season was canceled due to injury. 

The British Telegraph also said on the 6th, “Chelsea and Kante were close to renewing the contract, but negotiations were suspended due to injury.” “Chelsea’s offer includes a lot of incentives. Kante has yet to make a decision.”

Al Ittihad, considered the next destination, is a team that won the Saudi Arabia Pro League in the 2022-23 season. Coach Nuno Santos, who led Tottenham Son Heung-min, is at the helm, and on the 7th he strengthened the squad by embracing ‘Ballon d’Or striker’ Karim Benzema. Kante is more likely to form the ‘French Connection’ with Benzema.

Meanwhile, Kante, who had been active on the French stage until 2015, received great attention by leading the team to victory in the first year after joining Leicester City in the Premier League. Based on his vigorous activity, he dominated the midfield and served as the best defensive midfielder for a while. Kante joined Chelsea immediately after, lifting trophies such as 1 Premier League, 1 UEFA Champions League (UCL), 1 UEFA Europa League (UEL), 1 UEFA Super Cup and 1 FA Cup. raised He even won the Premier League Player of the Year award once. As a member of the French national team, he played 53 matches and completed a perfect career by winning the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

However, the decline in performance due to injury could not be prevented. Following a knee injury last year, a hamstring injury this year effectively left the lineup.
