Real Madrid monitor Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante

Real Madrid are not only interested in signing playmaker Eden Hazard from Chelsea but also their holding midfielder N’Golo Kante, say reports.

Calciomercato report that Los Blancos are a trio of European giants monitoring the energetic midfielder, along with Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.

The 27-year-old could be set to move on from Stamford Bridge this summer with the club’s hopes of returning to Champions League football currently hanging in the balance.

Kante joined the Blues in 2016 from Leicester City and has helped them to both the Premier League title and an FA Cup success but has been moved out of position by boss Maurizio Sarri this season to accommodate Jorginho.

The uncertainty surrounding Chelsea’s transfer ban in the summer window may impact any potential deal, but Madrid’s reported overhaul this summer could target the France international.
