Julien Lopetegui tells Madrid to complete Blues deal



Newly unveiled Madrid coach Julien Lopetegui has reportedly made French midfield dynamo N’Golo Kante his number one priority signing.

This developing report being circulated by Spanish tabloid Don Balon claim the former Spain head coach has informed Madrid chiefs of his interest in the midfielder.

Lopetegui is reportedly a huge fan of Kante and believes he can add something special to the European champions’ midfield. Kante, 27, has been an integral member of the Chelsea squad since his £30 million move from Leicester to Stamford Bridge.

However the deal would be difficult to pull through,  as reports from England indicates the Blues are not ready to sell at any price.

Kante is seen by Chelsea as an important figure in their team and at age 27 should just be entering his peak. The former PFA Player of the Year is reportedly also content with life in London . Although, many players find the appeal of playing in the Bernabeu too hard to resist, however Chelsea are confident of keeping the player for next season.

Kante is currently with the France squad competing in the ongoing mundial. He had a consistent season making 34 appearances in all competitions. Kante was pivotal last season in helping the Blues winning the FA Cup title
