During his time at the club, Kante was an important member of the Blues squad that won the Premier League, FA Cup, Champions League, Europa League, and Club World Cup. Kante now plays for Saudi Arabia champions Al Ittihad alongside Karim Benzema.
N’Golo Kante, a midfielder for Chelsea, has signed a three-year contract to play for Saudi Arabia’s champions Al Ittihad.
The 32-year-old, who won the 2018 World Cup with France, teams up with fellow countryman Karim Benzema, who earlier this week departed Real Madrid and agreed to a three-year deal with the Saudi team.
“Don’t believe in fake news. Kante is an Ittihad player now,” the club posted in a video on Twitter.
According to reports, the former Leicester City midfielder has agreed to a deal worth almost £86 million annually.
Nuno Espirito Santo, a former manager of Wolves and Spurs, led Al Ittihad to a five-point victory over Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr, who finished second, last season.
After seven years at Stamford Bridge, Kante departs Chelsea.
During his tenure with the team, he won the Champions League, Premier League, Europa League, and FA Cup.
However, the Frenchman’s most recent season was marred by injury, as he missed 38 games across all competitions, which caused Chelsea to struggle and finish 12th in the league without him.
