According to reports, Chelsea could lose influential midfielder N’Golo Kante to Premier League rivals Manchester United this summer.

Daily Express claim Manchester United could sign Kante if Chelsea boss Frank Lampard makes him available for the right price as the Blues need to raise funds this summer.

Chelsea have completed the signing of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner this summer and with the Blues closing in on the transfer of Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen, Lampard has been told he must sell players before signing new players.

If Kante completed a switch to Manchester United, he would rekindle his partnership with his France international team-mate Paul Pogba after the pair won the 2018 World Cup together.
