 Chelsea have offered N’Golo Kante a new contract worth nearly £290,000 a week, which would make him the club’s best-paid player. They have acted to deter interest from Paris Saint-Germain in the midfielder who impressed at the World Cup, where he helped France to lift the trophy. Kante has been offered a five-year deal worth up to £15 million a season, which roughly doubles his present wage and would take him above Eden Hazard who is Chelsea’s top earner on £220,000 a week.

Chelsea will not allow Kante to leave for France and the 27-year-old has not asked to go. He helped Chelsea to win the Premier League title in his first season after joining for around £30 million from Leicester City two years ago and his contract ends in 2021.

Kante played in every France game at the World Cup and recovered the ball more often than any other member of the squad. His team-mate Paul Pogba said that he “must have 15 lungs” and Didier Deschamps, the manager, called him the “essential element” of the triumphant side.

Chelsea are ready to increase Hazard’s salary to a similar level to Kante’s, but the Belgian said recently that he was considering a move. He has attracted interest from Real Madrid and Barcelona.
