The transfer of 2018 World Cup winner N’Golo Kante from Chelsea to Saudi Arabian powerhouse Al-Ittihad has been finalized. Kante was free to sign with any other team this summer since the five-year deal with the Blues is set to end on June 30.
During his stay at the Stamford Bridge, he helped the team win four major titles: the FA Cup, the Premier League, the UEFA Europa League, and the UEFA Champions League. However, despite being a key member of the squad, the 32-year-old was limited to only nine games due to various injuries during his last season in England.
After his fellow Frenchman, Karim Benzema departed Real Madrid and recently secured a three-year deal with Al-Ittihad, he is now set to join him at the club. The midfielder also follows Cristiano Ronaldo, who moved to Al-Nassr in January, as the most recent high-profile ex-Premier League player to sign with a Saudi Pro League team.
N’Golo Kante’s contract with Al-Ittihad
Following the conclusion of his contract with Chelsea this summer, N’Golo Kante has signed a four-year contract with Saudi Pro League champions Al-Ittihad until the year 2027, the club confirmed.
