Antonio Conte confident of Chelsea signing: Deal could be done in next few days

14 Jul

But Leicester are hoping to spark a bidding war for the midfielder, who has also attracted interest from Manchester United and Juventus.

Kante has already rejected a new contract worth £100,000-a-week, and the Foxes are prepared to offer him even better terms to stay.

But Chelsea believe the 25-year-old wants to join them and have now triggered his £20m release clause.

Despite their tough public stance, Leicester know they face losing Kante and hope to force Chelsea into an auction if he chooses to go.
