Kante is out of contract at Chelsea next June, and is now expected to leave the club for free when his contract runs out.
The French midfielder would ideally like to stay at Chelsea and continue to live in London, but that is looking unlikely due to Chelsea’s desire to sign new fresh young midfielders to reshuffle the midfield.
Kante has interest from abroad, with Juventus and Inter Milan having interest, as well as reported surprise links to Tottenham Hotspur.
Kante is leaving the club on a free as of now, and will continue to be that way barring any major change.
