PSG not giving up on Kanté, could offer Rabiot in exchange — report

Still a solid “no”

Chelsea’s summer has been rather terrible so far — no manager, no signings, no hope of improvement — but it could always be worse. A Chelsea without N’Golo Kanté would be one of those worse futures, possibly even apocalyptical. Thankfully, it’s an unlikely scenario. Not even Chelsea would be that silly to entertain the idea of selling our most indispensable player, who has repeatedly rejected any rumors as well.

That won’t necessarily deter others of course, especially as Kanté is having an excellent World Cup for France. PSG especially don’t seem to understand what “no” means.

According to French newspaper L’Equipe (via AS), PSG have once again put Kanté as a priority target number one for this summer, even as they await UEFA’s ruling on their latest Financial Fair Play rule breaches. If UEFA do clear them, which they probaby will based on previous cases, they will redouble their efforts to land the Chelsea midfielder.

One of the ways they will hope to convince the Blues is to offer not just cash but a player in return, in this case young Adrien Rabiot, who is entering the final year of his contract with PSG and is possibly looking to leave. Rabiot is already a target of Barcelona as a result, apparently.

But while Rabiot is a good player, he is no Kanté, to state the obvious. So, Dear PSG, go away. Again. For the second third fourth time.
