Paris Saint-Germain perhaps are not typically used to being snubbed when it comes down to the transfer market.
However, that is something that appears to have happened to them as recently as the January transfer window, as Mauricio Pochettino looked to try and bolster his side in order to mount an offensive for the Ligue 1 and UEFA Champions League titles.
Indeed, those that were perhaps placing a wager by using the thai-databet.com site recently during Europe’s elite competition will know that the Parisians were knocked out of the tournament by Real Madrid in the Round of 16, and the player that snubbed them remains involved.
According to a report by French publication Le Parisien, Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante reportedly did not even consider their advances and did not even provide them with a response.
It is claimed the UEFA Champions League and FIFA World Cup winner is happy with life in London at the moment and had no plans of leaving the Blues in the middle of the season.
Kante has proven to be elusive for PSG thus far in his career, as the French giants are understood to have been trying to sign him on a number of occasions, including when Chelsea managed to sign from Leicester City in 2016.
However, their time to get him might be coming rather soon, as the midfielder does only have one more year left on the contract he has at Stamford Bridge. If he does not agree to new terms, then he could be sold in order to avoid a free transfer; something that looks likely to happen to the likes of Andreas Christensen, Cesar Azpilicueta and Antonio Rudiger this summer.
Of course, Chelsea’s current predicament has meant that they have been unable to enter any new contract talks officially and sign new deals, however reports from Tuttomercatoweb earlier this month suggested he could extend until the summer of 2025.
Kante has had a huge amount of success whilst playing for Chelsea, including a Premier League title, the FA Cup, the Champions League, the Europa League and the Club World Cup.
Let’s not forget, he is a two-time Premier League winner, as he was instrumental in helping Leicester City win their shock title back in 2015.
He has made 249 appearances across all competitions for the Blues, and those at Chelsea will be wanting to see him make many more in the future.
PSG will want to ensure that they are in a position to make an offer for him should he become available, however it does seem rather unlikely at this moment in time.
