Glen Johnson, ex-Liverpool legend, has stated that it will be a wise decision on the part of Chelsea if they sell French Midfielder, N’golo Kante when the transfer window opens in January than let him go as a free agent when his contract expires.
N’golo Kante who just recovered from a hamstring injury that he sustained in August in Chelsea’s 2-2 draw against Tottenham, has rejected the offer of renewing his contract with the club. Before he was sacked said that he still has use for Kante and wanted him to stay.
Johnson has advised Chelsea to use this opportunity to make big money, as several big clubs like PSG are already bidding for the player, which means it will be a battle for the fittest, considering that N’golo Kante is one of the best Midfielders in the world.
He further said that of course, Chelsea will want Kante to stay if he decides to, but they might not be able to reach a consensus on the terms of the player, so they should sell him and then let him go as a free agent.
“Chelsea should possibly cash in on N’Golo Kante,’ Johnson told BoyleSports.
“He’s been linked with many clubs that might want him. They’re struggling to agree on a deal with him too.
“If Kante wants to stay and play then I’m sure Chelsea will want him to. But there’s always a business decision when a player might want too much, or the club is giving them too little – then they should shake hands and part ways.”
