Chelsea’s talks with N’Golo Kante have gone “very quiet” according to Fabrizio Romano speaking on a podcast today.

The France midfielder’s contract runs out a the end of this season, and as it stands he will leave on a free contract it seems.

He’s still a vital player for Chelsea, but his injuries have got worse and worse over the years, and he’s already been out for a month this season, which is barely two months old.

In a way, it might be better to take a clean break and let him go, even if that does make us worse in the short term. Seeing him drop out of the side mid-season has ruined a few campaigns for us now.

There’s still plenty of time left for a deal to be sorted however, and if Todd Boehly wants to secure him, we’re pretty sure he will be able to make him an offer he can’t refuse.
