Ngolo Kante’s time at Chelsea may be more than over as the Frenchman failed to agree with Chelsea on a contract extension and now the World Cup winner is set to run down his contract which expires in the summer.
Sergio Busquets’s contract is set to expire at the end of this season and Fc Barcelona are vigorously pursuing several options to replace their current captain. Sergio Busquets’s form has dipped with the passing years and Barca have had it hard trying to find a like-to-like heir for the Spanish veteran with the growing impatience from the Spotify Camp Nou faithful.
La Blaugrana have identified several transfer targets to replace Busquets previously but as per the recent reports, Fc Barcelona is keen on Kante’s contractual situation and may go for the diminutive French international in the Summer when his contract expires. Kante is the favorite name within the club’s sporting area and coaching staff to replace Sergio Busquets.
Kante, who was ruled out of the World Cup after suffering an injury seems to be among the defensive midfielders Barca are eyeing to replace Busquets alongside Ruben Neves and Martin Zubimendi as other alternatives for the given role.
However, N’Golo Kanté’s profile does not fit within the needs of Fc Barcelona as he has never thrived in a single-pivot role before, injury prone, and is 30 years old but he will be available as a free agent.
