“Happy to stay at Chelsea” -Update on £30m Chelsea’s best player star after contract discussions stall
Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante is glad to remain at Stamford Bridge,
The France international is yet to agree with the Blues over another agreement, yet Phillips says the two meetings will discuss an expansion.
Chelsea contract news – N’Golo Kante
Phillips as of late let that Chelsea’s past conversations with Kante and his team-mate Jorginho about new arrangements had not gone anyplace.
It comes after The Athletic asserted back in September that the 31-year-old turned down an underlying two-year offer from the west London club because of it not being sufficiently long.

Kante is currently into the last year of his agreement, meaning unfamiliar clubs will actually want to enter chats with him in January in front of a likely free transfer the following summer.
The France star has been at Chelsea starting around 2016, going along with them from Leicester City in a £30m deal, as detailed by BBC Game.
Phillips says Kante is still hoping to agree a new contract with Chelsea.
the journalist said: “Kante is happy to stay at Chelsea and he’s hoping he can find an agreement there still, but right now it’s not happening. But they will talk again, I think, before a final decision is made either way.”
Not much longer if they really do want to keep hold of Kante. As mentioned earlier, he can start talking to other clubs next month and you would expect there to be a lot of interest in him.
Kante has, of course, had a lot of injury problems recently. But when he is fully fit and playing, there might not be a better defensive-minded midfielder in football.
When he was still in charge of Chelsea, Frank Lampard told talkSPORT that the former Leicester man was a “world-class” footballer, and it is easy to see why.
