Why N’Golo Kante might leave Chelsea?
It has been reported that Al-Ittihad’s rumored contract offer for N’Golo Kante will be significantly higher than highest-earning superstars of European football. Kante was supposed to sign a two-year contract with Chelsea, but he may now leave and accept the unbelievable offer from Saudi Arabia. After passing his physical in London, N’Golo Kante is almost ready to announce his transfer to Saudi Arabian club Al-Ittihad.
The France international, whose Chelsea contract expires this month, has reached an agreement for a term through 2025 for €100 million (£86 million) per season with an additional year’s option. He has a net worth of 25 million euros.
Al-Ittihad, one of four Saudi teams in which the nation’s Public Investment Fund acquired 75% stakes this week, signed Karim Benzema from Real Madrid on Tuesday. On the same day, Kanté was approached in London by a delegate from Al-Ittihad, who might have convinced him to join.
How does N’Golo Kante’s contract compare with earnings of Messi and Ronaldo?
At Barcelona, Messi’s largest contract comprised a £64.4 million (€75 million) yearly compensation. The legendary Argentinean football player consented to a significant wage cut in order to join Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2021. According to reports, Kante’s offer would give the former Leicester star an annual salary of £21.5 million more than Messi has ever received. Image rights, business relationships, and a portfolio of investments are all part of the money Kante is receiving.
For signing with Al-Nassr, Ronaldo agreed for a salary in the region of £172 million (€200 million) per season. According to rumors, Benzema would be paid similarly to the captain of Portugal. If he joins Al-Ittihad, N’Golo Kante would join legendary Real Madrid striker Benzema and both of them will be managed by former Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo.
