Chelsea need to sell N’Golo Kante if they are going to be able to afford Declan Rice this summer, according to a new report.
The Daily Mail claims that Manchester United are interested in a swoop to sign the Hammers star, who has developed into one of the best players in Europe .
The 23-year-old is said to be at the top of United’s list of potential new signings in the summer, as they are desperate to secure a new midfield general.
He would cost well in excess of £100m and there has also been reported interest from Manchester City.
Chelsea, though, need to offload Kante to free up space in their squad if they are to find the funds to do a deal for the Hammer.
Kante remains a key member of the Chelsea squad and it would be another huge deal if he were to leave, but it isn’t clear if there is actually interest in bringing him in from another club.
