N’Golo Kante treats Liverpool counter-attacks, loose balls in midfield, and Paris Saint-Germain rumors with the exact same vigorous determination. If he sees them, he must quash them. Death to all those thing!

Placed in front of microphones as part of his duty while representing France in Word Cup preparations, Kante repeated what he’s always said, that he has no interest in leaving Chelsea.

“I haven’t been particularly approached by clubs. t’s my agent who looks after that kind of thing.

”At the moment, I’m a Chelsea player and I don’t worry about what’s going on around me. I’m preparing for the World Cup -- that’s all I have on my mind.”

RMC Sport had claimed earlier this month that Chelsea have put a €100m price tag on the 27-year-old, even though there’s no reason to believe that Chelsea would even consider selling our Player of the Year. Kante is under contract until 2021; unless he himself pushes for a move, Chelsea are under no pressure to sell. And it sounds like Kante is quite happy to stay. Which is a welcome piece of good news in what’s been a turbulent day, week, summer so far.

How would you even put a price on N’Golo Kante? He’s Chelsea’s best player (only Eden Hazard could challenge him for the title) and he might be the best central midfielder in the game. He’s a cornerstone for Chelsea’s future plans and thus, invaluable.
