N’Golo Kante signs 5-Year Deal with Chelsea
France international N’Golo Kante has first joined Chelsea in 2016, and has scored 3 Premier League goals in 81 appearances on the field for the team so far. The midfielder has recently signed another 5-year contract with the club in the past week, which will keep him at Chelsea until 2023. Kante mentioned that the past two years with the Blues have been ‘two beautiful years and I wish for more to come’, and expressed his love and appreciation for the club, saying ‘I like the city, I like the club and I am happy to be here for more time.’
The management side of the club commented that they are looking forward to another five-year collaboration with the Frenchman. They spoke highly of his humble behaviour at the club despite being a world champion (for France’s team in the 2018 World Cup in Russia), and twice Premier League winner. Kante won the Premier League title for Chelsea in his first season at the club, but fame never got to his head. As Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia mentioned, ‘he has astounded everybody with his tireless and unselfish displays’, earning himself a well-deserved five-year contract with one of the top teams in the Premier League.
