French Midfielder NGolo Kante Played in Final With Stomach Bug

N'Golo Kante sends message to Chelsea board over PSG transfer

Kante will be returning to Premier League action with Chelsea this season and will be hoping to impress his new manager Maurizio Sarri whose move from Napoli was confirmed on Saturday.

Barcelona superstar Sergio Busquets has reportedly sent a warning note to his Spanish League side to forget about him once they sign Chelsea star N'Golo Kante this summer.

The 27-year-old's unusual rise to the top gives another layer to this incredible story.

Now Kante can add World Cup victor to his ever-growing list of achievements and despite a poor performance in the final, he was brilliant throughout the tournament.

"Kante would be the ideal signing", Lineker told L'Equipe.

Outside the French presidential palace, another star of the tournament, Paul Pogba, serenaded his diminutive midfield mate with a fine rendition of the now famous N'Golo Kanté chant, with the whole squad and even Deschamps himself joining in...

"For me, N'Golo has been the best player at the World Cup", Lineker told L'Equipe.

Kante was excellent in Russian Federation and the flawless foil for Paul Pogba in a midfield two for Didier Deschamps side, a system that has often not brought out the best in the Manchester United man. "He's one of the keys to France and is one of the reasons they're a big favourite for the final".

"His quality of pass is excellent and he can break the lines". In his position, he's the best player I've ever seen.

"He runs everywhere and is a true pickpocket".
