Kante has emerged as one of the best midfielders in world football in recent times after enjoying Premier League success with Leicester City and Chelsea.

The 27-year-old elevated his status after helping France win the 2018 World Cup, which invited interest from PSG, according to the player himself.

"There was no urge to go elsewhere after the World Cup," the 2016/17 Premier League Player of the Season told RMC Sport.

"There were other clubs' interests but after talking to Chelsea, things were clear. The club is counting on me and I feel good. The next logical step was to continue with Chelsea.

"There were some contacts (from PSG), but after a discussion with Chelsea, I realised that the main thing was to feel good where I was.

"I am at Chelsea. It's good for me to stay at Chelsea."

 
Do you think Kante made the right decision in rejecting PSG to stay at Chelsea? Let us know in the comments section below.
