Real Madrid enter the race to sign Chelsea midfielder?

Lampard wanted by European giants

Real Madrid will reportedly compete with Juventus to secure the services of Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante at the end of the campaign.

Kante has been with the Blues since the summer of 2016 and during this period, he has been a success and has helped the club win the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League.

A recent report from Tuttosport claimed that Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri has earmarked Kante as the prime target to strengthen the midfield department and the Bianconeri could make an approach next summer.

However, according to Sport, the Serie A holders could find themselves in a bidding battle with Los Blancos, who are likewise keen on pursuing a world-class midfielder in their ranks.

Kante is presently contracted to the Blues until the summer of 2023 and the west London side are presently in a good position to turn down any offers from the European giants.

The Frenchman has been limited to just five appearances under manager Frank Lampard this term with a couple of niggles hampering his first-team involvement.
