N’Golo Kante has signed a new contract at Chelsea that keeps him at Stamford Bridge until June 2023, reports ESPN.
Chelsea midfielder has signed a new five-year deal.
The new deal, which represents a two-year extension, reportedly takes the 27-year-old’s wages to around £290,000-a-week making him the highest-paid player in the club’s history.
“I’m happy to extend my time with Chelsea, it has been two beautiful years and I wish for more to come,” Speaking at the announcement of his extension, Kante told Chelsea’s website.
“Since I came, I completely improved as a player, challenged myself and got some awards I never thought about. I like the city, I like the club and I am happy to be here for more time.”
With help from former Tottenham and Liverpool director of football, Damien Comolli, we show you how a transfer works through Iain Macintosh’s tale of fictional rising star Dave Thumper.
Kante joined Chelsea from Leicester City for a fee of around £30 million in the summer of 2016, having just played a pivotal role in their miraculous Premier League title triumph.
He won the league again in his first season at Stamford Bridge, becoming the first player since Eric Cantona to finish top of England’s top flight with two different clubs in consecutive seasons, and was voted the PFA Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year for 2017 in light of his performances.
Kante formed a key part of the France team that won the World Cup in Russia under Didier Deschamps, and he was subsequently named in the FIFPro World XI.
Chelsea, who committed Marcos Alonso to a new long-term contract last month, hope tying down Kante will strengthen their case to convince Eden Hazard to opt against pursuing his “dream” move to Real Madrid next summer and instead sign a new deal.
The France international, 27, has scored three goals in 81 Premier League appearances for the Blues after joining from Leicester City in 2016. Chelsea won the league title in Kante’s first season at Stamford Bridge and he was named the Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year.
“It has been two beautiful years and I wish for more to come,” he said.
“Since I came, I have completely improved as a player, challenged myself and got some awards I never thought about. I like the city, I like the club and I am happy to be here for more time.”
Kante has 36 caps for France and was a member of their World
Cup-winning squad in Russia
this summer.
Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said: “When he arrived, we knew we had signed a special player – but he has astounded everybody with his tireless and unselfish displays.
“Off the pitch, he remains a dedicated professional and a humble human being despite the fact he is a world champion and a two-time Premier League winner. We now look forward to five more years with N’Golo at the heart of the Chelsea midfield.”
