Kante Signs £290,000 New Five-Year Deal with Chelsea
The Premier League club Chelsea on Friday said French international midfielder N’Golo Kante has committed his long-term future to the club by signing a new £290,000-a-week five-year contract from £150,000-a-week.
He, who joined Chelsea in 2016, helped the club win the title in his first season at Stamford Bridge and was rewarded for his consistent play by being named the player of the year by the Professional Footballers’ Association and Football Writers’ Association.
Kante in a statement said “I’m happy to extend my time with Chelsea, it has been two beautiful years and I wish for more to come.”
“Since I came, I completely improved as a player, challenged myself and got some awards I never thought about. I like the city, I like the club and I am happy to be here for more time.”
Kante tasted his first Premier League title triumph with Leicester City in the 2015-16 seasons and also started all seven matches for France as they lifted the World Cup in Russia earlier this year.
