Transfer Talk: Ten Hag wants Kante to spark Red Devils revolution
Incoming Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has identified N’Golo Kante as a key transfer target this summer.
Chelsea midfielder Kante, 31, has one year remaining on his contract at Stamford Bridge having joined the Blues from Leicester in 2016.
Kante has made 40 appearances for the West Londoners in all competitions this term and was a second-half substitute in Saturday’s FA Cup final which saw Thomas Tuchel’s side lose on penalties to Liverpool.
The Red Devils are in need of midfield reinforcements with Paul Pogba set to leave the club.
Reports in Italy say Pogba’s representatives are due to meet Juventus club officials next week to discuss a free transfer, with Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain also interested in acquiring the Frenchman’s services.
