EPL: Kante set to leave Chelsea, new club revealed
N’Golo Kante is set to leave Chelsea as a free agent and sign for Al-Ittihad.
The Saudi Arabian champions have sent a team to the UK to wrap up a deal for the France midfielder.
This was revealed by football transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano.
Romano tweeted: “N’Golo Kanté is on the verge of joining Al Ittihad on free transfer! Final details are being discussed, then proposal will be accepted.
“Al Ittihad directors just arrived in London to link up with the PIF Saudi delegation to prepare documents. €100m per year until 2025.”
Kante will be the next top player to join Al-Ittihad after Karim Benzema was officially unveiled on Tuesday.
