Paris Saint-Germain Eye Chelsea Midfielder N’Golo Kante In £90m’ Deal
Paris Saint-Germain are preparing for another summer of heavy spending next year with the recruitment of Chelsea star N’Golo Kante.
The Parisians smashed the world record during the last transfer window when they brought in Neymar from Barcelona for £198 million but they are now looking to bolster their midfield by recruiting the France international for £90million.
Unai Emery also prised Monaco wonderkid Kylian Mbappe from Monaco during the window — initially on loan but a permanent deal worth £166 million will be sealed next summer — to form a star-studded strike force at Parc des Princes.
Now, French outlet Le Parisien reported on Tuesday that the big spending Ligue 1 club are looking for a midfielder in the mould of Kante, who is in his second season at Chelsea.
Le Parisien expects Kante to cost at least double or triple the €36m Chelsea paid to buy him from Leicester City in the 2016 summer, but PSG would gladly pay up.
There are also worries over Financial Fair play rules, but PSG have found a way around the rules in the past.
