N’Golo Kante of Chelsea is wanted by Al Nassr in a free transfer, and the Saudi club is also interested in Cristiano Ronaldo.
According to shocking reports, Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante is being courted by Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr.
According to French media, Al-Nassr has expressed an interest in signing the Chelsea midfielder as a further declaration of intent. According to Foot Mercato and Get French Football News, Al-Nassr want Kante on a free transfer when his contract with Chelsea expires.
Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to sign a lucrative contract with Al Nassr in Saudi Arabia after leaving Manchester United, and there are reports that he may be joined by other players.
Despite wanting to stay in London, the 31-year-old French international is out of contract at the end of the season and could leave on a free transfer in search of a new challenge.
Kante has been one of Chelsea’s most consistent and effective players since joining from Leicester City, but he is no longer consistently fit, having only played twice for his club this season and missing the World Cup in Qatar.
Playing in Saudi Arabia would be much easier on his body and would provide him with a large payday in what would most likely be his final few years of professional football.
Ronaldo is currently without a club after his contract with Manchester United was terminated on the eve of the World Cup last month.
Despite looking for a new Champions League club, the Portuguese international has been left with few options and is now rumored to be on his way to the Middle East.
If the transfer to Al-Nassr is completed, the former Manchester United forward will receive a huge £175 million-a-year contract, which will only increase when he moves into an ambassadorial role after his playing career ends.
It is a lucrative move, made even more appealing by the possibility of being joined by Kante in the summer.
Kante is said to be attached to London and would prefer to stay if Chelsea did not offer him a new contract. He is not, however, specifically opposed to.
