As names multiply to replace Sergio Busquets at the end of the season, between Ibrahim SangareReuben Neves and Martin ZubimendiFC Barcelona would have a new target in mind: N’Golo Kanté.
Indeed, the situation of the Frenchman from Chelsea is getting more complicated: at the end of his contract in June 2023 with the English team, the 31-year-old midfielder is no longer playing this season because of injuries (2 games in all). N’Golo Kanté will even miss the World Cup in Qatar, to the chagrin of Didier Deschamps, who has already spoken on the subject in front of the press.
On the FC Barcelona side, we strongly think of the succession of Sergio Busquets. The Spaniard, captain of Barça this season, still plays a lot under Xavi (13 games), but the club does not necessarily intend to extend the lease of the midfielder, who has spent his entire career at the Catalan club. Sergio Busquets doesn’t know what his future will holdas he revealed to the press, but the Spanish international (selections) is quoted on the MLS side, where David Beckham’s Inter Miami would consider attracting him.
A free arrival for Kanté?
According to media information Report, N’Golo Kanté would have the profile dreamed of by Xavi, threatened after the elimination of Barça from the Champions League, to replace Sergio Busquets, and his contractual situation would present an advantage for the Catalan club, whose finances are still bloodless. By recovering the French at the end of the contract in the summer of 2023, FC Barcelona would not spend money on a transfer. A boon for such talent, although injuries have prevented the 2018 world champion from fully expressing himself for several seasons.
Note that several formations follow the Frenchman N’Golo Kanté. This is the case for two Premier League clubs, Arsenal and Tottenham.
