Newly-appointed Zidane identifies Kante as first-choice signing
On Monday, Real Madrid have officially confirmed that Zinedine Zidane has sensationally returned to Santiago Bernabeu after leaving the club on a high note in the summer of 2018. As per various sources, the Frenchman will be handed a 300 million war chest in order to turn Real back into Champions League contenders once again.
And journalist Nicolo Schira, who writes for respected Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport, reports that the Real Madrid manager has identified N'Golo Kante as his priority signing in the summer. However, it remains to be seen whether the La Liga giants well be able to lure the Frenchman away from Stamford Bridge. Kante, who signed a new 5-year deal with the Blues back in November, has never suggested that he's looking to leave Chelsea.
Real Madrid might also face competition from Paris Saint-Germain for Kante's signature. The Ligue 1 giants are long-term admirers of the Frenchman and could renew their interest in the Chelsea midfielder when the transfer window reopens. The 27-year-old joined Chelsea in the summer of 2016 after helping Leicester City to win the 2015/2016 Premier League title.
The Frenchman then added another Prem title to his collection in the next year, under the guidance of Antonio Conte. In the 2017/2018, Kante won FA Cup with Chelsea and then proceeded to claim the World Cup trophy with the France national team.
