Chelsea ready to sell N'Golo Kante
Chelsea are prepared to sanction the departure of N'Golo Kante this summer, provided any interested club meets their asking price, a report from MARCA claims.
Kane still has three years remaining on his existing deal with the Blues, but it appears that his association with the club could end in the next transfer window.
The Blues have been reluctant to listen to offers for the midfielder over the past few years, but the Frenchman has become a lesser influence on the team this term due to his regular injury concerns.
Hence, he is no longer regarded as indispensable to the club and reports in Spain claim that a fee of around £54.5m could be sufficient to prise him away from the Blues ahead of next season.
Real Madrid are understood to be monitoring his situation, but it would come as a surprise if they make an approach, considering president Florentino Perez recently ruled out any marquee signings.
Inter Milan, who are managed by former Blues boss Antonio Conte, have also been credited with an interest in Kante.
