However, Kante has recently spoken about the PSG links and claims he had no desire to leave Chelsea.

Kante told RMC Sport:

“There was no urge to go anywhere else after the World Cup.

“The club is counting on me and I feel good. The next logical step was to continue at Chelsea.”

When asked if he had any contact with PSG, Kante stated:

“There were some contacts.

 “But after a discussion with Chelsea I realized that the main thing was to feel good where I was, I’m in Chelsea. good for me to stay in Chelsea.”
