Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante has been linked with a surprise move from Stamford Bridge this summer with Real Madrid keen on acquiring his signature.

The Frenchman has been a wonderful servant for the Blues over the past three seasons, but the current season has limited his performances, given he has been played out of position under Sarri to fit Jorginho in the holding midfield role.

According to The Mirror, Los Blancos are confident of luring Eden Hazard from the west London side during the summer but manager Zinedine Zidane has also set his sights on pursuing Kante from the Blues.

Nonetheless, the Blues don't seem to hold any interest in parting ways with the Frenchman and their stance is likely to remain unchanged with the prospects of a two-window transfer ban starting from the summer.

Maurizio Sarri's side have already appealed against the ban to FIFA and it remains to be seen whether they can overcome or delay their embargo ahead of the summer. The Blues recently sealed a top-four finish to the league season after a 3-0 triumph over Watford at Stamford Bridge.
