Chelsea star brushes off claims he could leave Blues in favour of Real Madrid move

N’Golo Kante has brushed off claims that he could link up with compatriot Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid, insisting that he’s only focused on the task at hand at Chelsea.

Kante has essentially completed English football. He won the Premier League with Leicester City, pulling off the greatest underdog story in the history of the game, before sealing a move to Chelsea.

At Chelsea he proved that he can perform under the increased scrutiny of playing for a big club. He won the league once again in his debut campaign at the Bridge, establishing himself as a key player.

Having also won the World Cup for his country, all that’s left for N’Golo is the Champions League. Playing under Zidane in Madrid he’d have a fighting chance of winning it – but he’s not interested.

Kante told RTL insisting that his focus is solely on Chelsea (comments translated into English by Bleacher Report):

“I am at Chelsea, and I still have aims here. What is said elsewhere is not important.”

The report claims that Kante was pushed for an answer on how he would react if Zidane got in contact over a potential move to the Santiago Bernabeu. He said

“That is not important. I am at Chelsea, and I am focused on that.” (via RTL, translated by B/R)

Though you have to question the authenticity of the claims of most modern footballers, Kante is absolutely the exception to the rule. He’s going nowhere.
