Popular Chelsea player’s move away reportedly stalls putting question marks over his future

Chelsea fans will pick their club legends very carefully, so when they universally start calling any player a club legend for a lifetime, then you know that player has fully earned that.

This is leading in to our next story, which is on the fan favourite and Chelsea legend N’Golo Kante, who looks set to depart the club as a free agent when his contract is up at the end of this month.

Sources: Chelsea consider keeping Mason Mount this summer whether he signs new deal or not!

Fabrizio Romano doesn’t give the ‘here we go’ lightly, so the expectation is that Kante will still be leaving Chelsea and joining Al Ittihad, as he reported recently below.

However, there is one report out this morning that is throwing shade over this. As reported by NDTV Sports, Kante’s planned move to Saudi side Al-Ittihad is being stalled by medical issues, a club source told AFP on Thursday.

The Al-Ittihad source said Kante had signed a binding agreement but the club were examining the results of medical tests before agreeing a final deal.

It’s a strange report to be honest, as if anyone would not know about Kante’s injury history prior to wanting to sign him! He was even injured at Chelsea at the end of the season and didn’t even play! I fully expect this to still go through.
