N’Golo Kante has already undergone one part of his medicals with Al Ittihad ahead of completing his high-profile move to Saudi Arabia.
Fabrizio Romano confirmed N’Golo Kante had completed the first part of his medicals ahead of a move to Al Ittihad.
The Chelsea fan favourite is closing in on a summer exit from Stamford Bridge, with a lucrative move to Saudi Arabia on the cards.
Since arriving at Stamford Bridge from Leicester City, N’Golo Kante has won everything that’s there to win at club level.
The last season was marred with injuries as Kante barely featured in a disastrous campaign for Chelsea.
After disagreements with the new club hierarchy, there have been rumblings of an exit since the start of the season.
The Chelsea fan favourite is closing in on their summer exit with a move to Saudi Arabia seemingly inching closer.
Al Ittihad seems like Kante’s new destination, with the midfielder set to sign a two-year deal with the Saudi club.
According to Fabrizio Romano, the Frenchman will earn a staggering €100 million per season with the middle eastern club.
Last week reports pointed to Saudi officials being in London to seal Kante’s signing.
After a slight impasse, the move is set to proceed as Kante has completed the first part of his medicals with Al Ittihad.
The Stamford Bridge side are already on the lookout for a replacement.
Either way, it’s a big departure that Chelsea will have to smartly replace in the summer.
