According to journalist Pete O’Rourke, if Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante decides to leave Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2019, there will be no shortage of suitors.

According to O’Rourke, co-owner Todd Boehly will have to make a critical choice if the Frenchman doesn’t sign a new, long-term contract before the end of the current campaign.

What is the most recent Kante-related news?

Since Kante’s current contract expires the following year, he will be free to transfer to another team before the 2023–24 season.

However, Chelsea has responded by making the 31-year-old a new contract offer.

The Blues verbally offered to extend his contract for another two years in August, according to The Athletic. It’s believed that the proposal also gave you the option of another 12 months.

However, the same source claims that Kante has since rejected Chelsea’s offer because he is dissatisfied with the contract’s length.

What has O’Rourke said regarding Kante’s future at Chelsea?

Chelsea must now make a significant choice, according to O’Rourke. And the journalist believes Kante will have many suitors if that choice causes him to leave west London.

“Chelsea, like many of the big clubs, aren’t that keen on giving players over the age of 30 long-term contracts, so there’s a big decision for Chelsea to make regarding Kante’s contract,” O’Rourke said in a statement to GIVEMESPORT.

There won’t be a shortage of takers for the Frenchman, I’m sure, if he declines and decides to relocate.

Should Chelsea re-sign Kante to a long-term deal?

No. All things considered, their initial offer of two years with the possibility of another was quite kind.

There is no denying how fantastic of a buy Kante was for Chelsea. The France international has helped the Blues win the Champions League, Premier League, Europa League, and FA Cup since moving there for £30 million from Leicester City.

Kante is now 31 and more prone to injuries, though. He is currently sidelined due to a thigh issue, and under former manager Thomas Tuchel, he was only able to make 21 starts in the English Premier League last season.

Again, Chelsea was kind to extend a two-year contract with an additional 12-month option to the former Leicester player in light of this. It will be interesting to see if either party is prepared to make a concession at this point.
