Chelsea set to offer bumper new contract to Ngolo Kante

Kante's impressive display at World Cup has drawn interest from PSG

Chelsea are ready to keep N'Golo Kante out of the hands of Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

It remains to be seen whether the signing of Mina would life Mourinho's mood, after some alarmingly downbeat appearances before the media during the club's tour of America.

The new contract would see Kante's pay nearly doubled from his present deal ― £150,000 a week ― which terminates in 2021.

Since his move from Leicester two years ago, Kante had become an integral part of the Blues midfield. His reputation was further improved this summer after enjoying an outstanding tournament for France as they went on to life the World Cup trophy.

The midfielder is set to stay at Stamford Bridge as he has not shown any interest in moving to France. After the tournament, his global teammate Kylian Mbappe, who plays for PSG, confessed to trying to convince Kante into making the switch to the Parc des Princes.

According to the same story, Mina's impressive performances for Colombia at the World Cup in Russian Federation caught the attention of Jose Mourinho, who is now keen to try and bring him to Old Trafford. Chelsea's current highest earner is Eden Hazard, who is on a 247.000 weekly wage. This means Kante would earn £290,000 per week (€325,000) or £70,000 more than Hazard.

Goal understands the World Cup-winning midfielder has been offered more than Eden Hazard's current £200,000-a-week contract, as they aim to convince one of their star players to shun interest from overseas. Chelsea hope that mega-money offers would convince both of their key players to remain at the club.
