N'Golo Kante: Chelsea midfielder unwilling to leave Stamford Bridge amid Barcelona interest

- N'Golo Kante has just a year left on his current deal with Chelsea

- The midfielder has been an integral figure in the Blues' dressing room since joining them in 2016

- About three top European clubs including Real Madrid and Barcelona are looking to sign him

- Series of injuries have kept him sidelined for the better part of the currently suspended season

Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante reportedly has no plans of dumping the Blues when the summer transfer window reopens unless the club decides to offload him.

Kante has built a reputation as one of the finest Premier League midfielders, attracting interest from top European clubs including Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid.

PSG have for long looked to sign Kante, but the World Cup-winning star is understood to be reluctant to return to France.

The former Leicester star is further thought not to be keen with a switch to Madrid as he is afraid he could end up playing second fiddle to Casemiro.
