    If he can replicate his 15/16 level Chelsea will have a hell of a midfielder.

    Really wanted to see the same Leicester side that won the title in the CL. Such a shame, Chelsea have one hell of a midfielder.

    But is it not still the Kanté of 13/14 and 14/15?

    Good signing for the mid table side, just need to trump them now by announcing the Pog!

    That's why I said 'if'. There's always the possibility of him being underwhelming at a bigger club.

    Going by how he handled himself at the Euros, I highly doubt it.

    He actually faded away slightly after the first game against Romania I think.

    Conte made Parolo look like Vieira so he'll probably take Kante to an even higher level.

    I would say the more confident france got the less they relied on him. Unfortunately he is that kind of a player. Dont think he put a foot wrong in the first 4 games though.

    He'd have gone to China if that was the case.

    He's a very good player, but arguably better much for/in a side that sees less of the ball. Be interesting to see how Chelsea use him, or how often they use him, given that in the majority of games they'll have the majority of possession.

    Bollocks. They've signed a proper difference maker in Kante.

    Surprised he wasn't more loyal to Leicester tbh
    I know football is a business and a short career but would have been nice if he gave them one more season before leaving...a bit like what Gareth bale did

    Loyal? He was there for less than a year, won them the league and they made a £25 million profit! I don't think he owes them anything.

    Does this signing now mean that Mikel is obsolete?

    Did not thank or mention Leicester in his first statement after joining Chelsea. Leicester fans are not happy.

    Deleting stuff of his Leicester days might be something contractual.

    Don't players always do that when they move? I'm pretty sure they do.

    I'm sure he'll make a statement on social media soon thanking Leicester and their fans.

    I'd be surprised if he personally had anything to do with it. He's on vacation after a long season. It was probably his agent that did it

    Frankly speaking things like N'Golo Kante going to Chelsea this summer is exactly why I just don't get fond of players anymore, with rare exceptions, usual being academy graduates as they tend to stick around longer and you are more invested in them, the love we have as a fan base for Andy King for example is immense even though we know he isn't the greatest player in the world.

    Kante could have stuck it out until January for the CL campaign, assuming we went out then or the summer if we got through, and still had his pick of clubs next summer. Rationally I understand all the reasons for it but ...

    Moving from a team in the CL to a team not in the CL is the new moving to a team in the CL from a team not in the CL.
