A move to Barca might interest Les Bleus ace Kante, but Chelsea will need to be the driving force behind the transfer. N’Golo Kante is not looking to seal a move away from Chelsea in the next transfer window unless the west London side insists he has to leave. According to various tabloids in Spain, LaLiga giants Barcelona are hoping they can use the world-cup winner Kante in a swap deal that would see former Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho join Frank Lampard's Blues. But, Goal quashed such suggestions as they recently reported that Kante is delighted to be at Chelsea and is not looking to ply his trade elsewhere. The former Leicester City star is a man in demand and continues to attract interest from elite clubs in Europe, including Real Madrid and Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain, but Kante isn't moved.

Over the years, PSG have been keen to lure Kante to the Parc de Princes, but the midfield marshal is unwilling to return to his home country due to personal reasons. He has also been on Los Blancos' radar for a while, but some believe he could be used as a back-up to Brazil star Casemiro. The 29-year-old is currently working hard to return to fitness following several injuries he's suffered throughout the 2019-20 campaign that has seen him miss 20 games for the Blues.


As we all know the coronavirus pandemic brought football to a halt, and it is believed that the summer transfer window will be moved if the current season is to be continued. However, as things stand, the Chelsea ace N’Golo Kante would only consider a Barcelona transfer if the west London side force him out. Chelsea have not been in action since their 4-0 win over Everton on March 8.
