Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has said that for him to remain at Old Trafford as manager, United must buy N’Golo Kante from Chelsea.
Kante, French midfielder signed from Leicester in the summer of 2016, is now considered one of the world’s finest defensive midfielders, and his talents have turned Mourinho to a keen admirer.
The Portuguese handler, according to Don Balon, has told Red Devil’s hierarchy to higher the midfielder or he’ll go.
Meanwhile, Chelsea’s efforts to land Alex Sandro from Juventus are being frustrated by the high asking price the Italian giants have placed on their player.
Chelsea’s manager, Antonio Conte has been a long time admirer of Sandro, as he looks to bolster his options at the back.
The Italian giants reportedly are holding out for £60 million, a fee the Blues are not willing to match.
Also, Bayern Munich midfielder, Arturo Vidal is ignoring reported interest from Chelsea and is instead focused on winning silverware with his club this season.
The Premier League champions have been linked with a €37million bid for the midfielder, who worked with Blues boss Antonio Conte at Juventus.
But Vidal told newsmen, “Yes, I’ve heard about it, but I’m fully focused on the season with Bayern and I’m only looking day-to-day.”`
