PSG Eager To Recruit This Chelsea Midfielder: Why Sarri Cannot Allow Him To Leave

According to a recent report by the Daily Mirror, Paris Saint-Germain are desperate to secure the signature of N’Golo Kante from Chelsea during the summer transfer window. The same source has revealed that a move to Paris could be the Frenchman’s last chance to pen a big, lucrative contract in his playing career.

The Pensioners supporters won’t welcome this recent development with open arms as the club cannot afford to lose one of their star midfielders. The West London outfit are facing a difficult period as FIFA will ban them from signing players for the next two transfer windows. 

Why Chelsea Cannot Allow Kante To Leave

Thus, Maurizio Sarri’s side are in no position to part ways with their best players especially after securing UEFA Champions League football for next season. Even though Kante has not featured in his favoured defensive midfield position, he is still capable of assuming that role if Sarri decides to change his tactics in the next campaign.

The French talent has experienced a mixed season at Stamford Bridge, yet he has still managed to put in a few memorable displays at the heart of the Pensioners midfield. The 28-year-old has made 52 appearances for Chelsea this term, scoring five goals while grabbing four assists in all competitions.

Kante has made a name for himself as a defensive midfielder after guiding France to the 2018 FIFA World Cup triumph last summer and also winning a couple of league title with Leicester City and Chelsea. However, he can sometimes look a bit out of depth when he is used as a box to box midfielder, which explains why he has struggled at times during this campaign.

What Could Be The Repercussions For Chelsea If They Part Ways With Kante?

Losing a player of Kante’s defensive qualities will be a bitter pill to swallow for the Pensioners. Hence, Sarri should try everything he can to keep him in West London for the next few years. Maybe, incorporating Kante alongside Jorginho as the holding midfielders could be an option for the Italian boss to rely upon in the upcoming season.

There is no doubt that Chelsea will struggle without Kante as he is irreplaceable in terms of what he brings on the pitch. On the other hand, if the Pensioners end up retaining him, then their fortunes could rise again as Sarri will try his best to deliver some silverware in the coming years.
