N’Golo Kanté first arrived in England when Leicester City signed the midfielder from French club Caen in August 2015.
The France international was instrumental in the Foxes’ title winning campaign under Claudio Ranieri and after spending one season at the King Power Stadium, he moved to Chelsea.
He’s been one of the regulars for the Blues under every manager who has been in charge at Stamford Bridge since 2016.
Prior to joining Leicester, Marseille were keen on acquiring the player’s services. Telefoot has interviewed the 28-year-old and he explained why he was right to join Leicester rather than extending his stay in the Ligue 1 after the 2014/15 season.
“The year in Leicester was wonderful and I did not regret it at all,” he said.
Kante has a significant role in Chelsea’s midfield and his performances for the Europa League winners have seen him being linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge. However, the Frenchman has no plans to leave the west London club anytime soon.
“Of course (that I could end my playing career at Chelsea). Today I am with Chelsea until 2023. So, in my mind, here I am, I hope to continue to have beautiful seasons at Chelsea until 2023,” Kante added.
“…when I came to Chelsea, I was at Leicester and I had just won my first title with a club. Today at Chelsea, I have three great years winning titles. I think it is a club that helped me a lot and I hope it will allow me to win a lot more titles.”
