World Cup winner could leave Chelsea for rivals Manchester United

Chelsea fans can finally breathe a sigh of relief as their nightmare is over. Sanctions imposed by the British government have been lifted and they have American businessman Todd Boehly as the new owner. Now, the focus would be on improving the squad for the next season.

Chelsea have already lost Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen to free transfers and are also at risk of losing Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta. Now that the sanctions have been lifted, the Blues can try to find suitable replacements on the market and convince their players to stay.

Chelsea to miss Kante for sale

However, the new owners have a definite vision in their minds, and it doesn’t look like French World Cup winner N’golo Kante is one of them. The defensive midfielder has struggled with injuries this season and hasn’t featured in most of the club’s matches.

As a result, the club could be looking to cash in on him now, and Manchester United are a possible destination for him. The 31-year-old has just one year left on his contract and would be a great addition to this United squad which needs midfield reinforcements.

Scott McTominay and Fred are currently the club’s two midfielders, playing behind Bruno Fernandes. However, they have come under a lot of criticism and could lose their place in the team.

Manchester United tent the signer Frenkie de Jong

However, Kante is not the only world-class midfielder Manchester United are linked with as they are considering a move for FC Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong. New United manager Erik Ten Hag worked with De Jong at Ajax and wants him to form the core of this United team in the future.

A midfield trio of Bruno Fernandes, N’Golo Kante and Frenkie de Jong seems like a fever dream for United fans who have watched the team play this season. It will be interesting to see if the Reds can pull this off, or if it will be another season of mediocrity next year.
