Real Madrid interest in Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante

Real Madrid are keen to rival interest from Juventus to sign Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante, according to reports.

Diario Sport have now followed up on a report earlier this week in El Desmarque that the France international is on the radar of Los Blancos.

Kante won back-to-back Premier League titles with Leicester City and Chelsea before winning the World Cup with his nation last year.

The 28-year-old is now the star player at the West London club following Eden Hazard’s move to Madrid this summer and it is said that Zinedine Zidane is a big admirer of his fellow countryman.

There have been doubts expressed about the form of Casemiro and it is claimed that Kante would be a direct upgrade on the Brazilian holding midfielder.

However, any stumbling block to such a move would be the financial outlay with the Europa League holders set to demand a huge sum for any interested bidder.
