Chelsea have made an important statement about N'Golo Kante leaving Stamford Bridge following his clash with manager Frank Lampard. The Sun reports.
According to French news media outlet Le Parisien, the Frenchman was left furious after he was not allowed by the English boss to attend a friend's wedding before the international break.
The news outlet also claimed that the France international is ambitious about joining Real Madrid and wants to push for his exit next year.
However, a spokesperson of the west London club has denied all claims calling it total nonsense.
Reports regarding the clash between player and coach came as a huge surprise despite the pair having a good relationship.
It is understood Lampard once allowed Kante to miss training in May and it was due to concerns about the coronavirus.
Kante was also supported by his teammates and returned to join up with the squad to finish the season.
The former Leicester City star has three left in his contract at the Bridge but has been linked with a move away from the club in recent months.
Real Madrid were at the forefront of suitors vying for the services of the 29-year-old but the harsh economic conditions did not help matters.
Kante has started all Chelsea's first four Premier League matches and it has proved that the Frenchman is still in Lampard's plans.
He is expected to feature for France in their Nations League clash with Croatia after playing out a 0-0 scoreline with Portugal.
Kante has two Premier League titles under his belt with Leicester and Chelsea as well as the FA Cup and the 2019 Europa League.
