Leicester key player, offered to Real Madrid


According to Spanish newspaper As, a key player of the Premier League champion, Leicester City, has been offered to Real Madrid. It isn’t Vardy or Mahrez and he plays as a deffensive midfielder. Yes, we’re talking about N’Golo Kanté, who is playing the EURO2016 with France, who is already in the second round.

Kanté’s name has already arrived to Santiago Bernabéu’s offices, according to As. The midfielder who remember Makélélé style, was playing in the ninth division five yars ago. Nowadays, everybody wants him. The club value his signing analyzing advantages and disadvantages. The main problem is the great performance of Casemiro this season.

The Brazilian midfielder has convinced Zidane, who thinks ‘Case’ was fundamental in the Champions League final against Atlético de Madrid. He’s an undisputed starting member ahead of key players like James Rodríguez or Isco.

However, Real Madrid value signing French midfielder precisely because there is only Casemiro in that position. The season is too long (they will play the UEFA Super Cup and the Club World Cup because they won the Champions League) and Kanté was one of the most important players of Leicester last season.

Mahrez and Vardy were awarded as the respective MVP for journalists and footballers but everybody knows the Premier won by Leicester wouldn’t have been possible if Kanté wasn’t there. In addition, he has the blessing of Makélélé, who said “I see myself in him when he plays”.

Furthermore, Kanté’s release fee is about €25,5 million, an affordable price considering other players transfers of the market. Nevertheless, the interest in him doesn’t imply will stop the negotiation for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba. According to As, both signings are compatible.


  1. its very important to note that,signing kante to real Madrid at this moment is wonderful because using casemiro only at the defensive midfield without backup is totally wrong even though he played a pavotal role on previous game but is not withstanding. also the left side position as well as the attacking position at the centre striking need to be reshuffle .

  2. I do believe signing Pogba and Kante will be a great assess for Real Madrid but not Pagnet. Frankly, he is good. However, considering his age, I firmly suggest that we keep Isco or Rodriguez instead. Those two players have the proper skills, just allow them to forge their mental and develop their games.
