Mauricio Pochettino’s hopes of managing one of Chelsea‘s greatest Premier League players have been dashed as N’Golo Kante prepares to embark on an incredible adventure in Saudi Arabia as confirmed by a reliable source.

The allure of the Saudi Pro League continues to grow, with the Saudi Public Investment Fund now taking control of prominent football clubs such as Al Ittihad, Al Ahli, Al Nassr, and Al Hilal.

The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema have already made their moves, with Benzema’s recent unveiling by Al Ittihad.

Kante, the 32-year-old midfield stalwart, will be out of contract at Stamford Bridge on June 30. Despite battling injuries this season, Kante seemed on the verge of extending his stay at Chelsea earlier in March.

However, recent developments indicate that Al Ittihad have seized the opportunity. Romano reveals that Kante has successfully undergone a medical in London and is now poised to sign a two-year deal, with an option for a third, with the Saudi club.

The most eye-catching aspect of the agreement is undeniably the mind-boggling salary offered to Kante. Reports suggest he will earn a staggering €100m per season, combining image rights, commercial deals, and a diverse portfolio. This equates to a weekly wage exceeding £1.65m.

With Romano’s confirmation of the deal, Kante’s move to Al Ittihad is all but sealed, marking the end of an era for a true Chelsea legend.

Kante’s Legacy at Chelsea

Arriving for £32m from Leicester City in 2016, Kante wasted no time in solidifying his position as the linchpin of Chelsea’s midfield, contributing to the club’s triumphant campaigns.

During his seven-year tenure, Kante lifted an impressive array of silverware, including the Premier League, FA Cup, Europa League, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup.
