Five-year contract agreed: Chelsea will announce signing of Arsenal and Manchester United target this weekend


Chelsea will complete the transfer of midfielder N'Golo Kante this weekend, the Telegraph has revealed.

The Frenchman will be Antonio Conte's second summer signing at Chelsea and will sign a five-year contract.

The 25-year-old was also a target for Arsenal and Manchester United but he opted to move to Stamford Bridge even if he will not enjoy Champions League football this season.

On Thursday, Foxes boss Claudio Ranieri revealed that Leicester City offered a new contract to the player but unlike Jamie Vardy, Kante decided to leave the club.

"We offered Kante a new deal before the Euros. Now I know there are a lot of big teams interested," Ranieri is quoted as saying by the BBC.

"Doing it [winning the title] again is not possible, but we proved last season that everything is possible.

"There is no pressure on us, we're the champions. The new champions will have to fight against us - not just the new champions but everybody.

"We know it will not be the same but we are ready."
