On August 17th, we covered a report from French newspaper L’Equipe, who claimed that Paris Saint-Germain director of football Antero Henrique dreams of signing Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante.

The same publication takes a look at the situation as over the last 12 months, the Ligue 1 winners have seen three of their midfielders – Blaise Matuidi, Thiago Motta (retire) and Javier Pastore leave the club, while Lassana Diarra arrived in January.

In addition to this, Giovani Lo Celso has been allowed to go out on loan to Real Betis.

The report raises a valid point as to why the PSG chief was stubborn in chasing the World Cup winner, when there was ‘no chance of succeeding’ in bringing him to the club due to the Financial Fair Play regulations and Chelsea’s reluctance to sell.

Moreover, Kante has also reportedly expressed his desire to continue at the west London club, and therefore, Henrique and PSG were wasting their efforts chasing the Blues star midfielder.
