According to Fabrizio Romano, the 32-year-old French international midfielder will sign for two seasons and an annual salary of €100m for Al-Ittihad.

100 million euros per season, over two years. It is the insane salary that awaits N’Golo Kanté in Saudi Arabia. Figures that turned the head of the tricolor international midfielder (53 caps, 2 goals) of 32, at the end of the contract at Chelsea. According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Kanté is very close to joining Al-Ittihad, the Saudi club which has just signed Karim Benzema. There are apparently only a few details left to settle, while emissaries from the reigning Saudi Arabian champions club were in London on Tuesday to close the file and strike a blow.

Benzema and Kanté have played seven matches together in the jersey of the France team, including the four of Euro 2020 (which took place in 2021). They will soon play many more…

European champions with the Blues

After wearing the colors of Boulogne-sur-Mer and Caen, N’Golo Kanté crossed the Channel in 2015 to join Leicester City. With the Foxes, he won one of the most unlikely titles in Premier League history and caught the eye of Chelsea recruiters in 2016. The Paris native will therefore have spent seven years with the Blues, winning in particular the Champions League under the orders of Thomas Tuchel in 2021. Regularly hampered by injuries in recent months, the 2018 world champion, package in Qatar last winter, leaves Stamford Bridge after having played 269 matches with the London club (13 goals, 16 assists).
