"For his disagreement with Lampard" . Reports: Kante may leave Chelsea

N'Golo Kante is reportedly interested in leaving Chelsea and is keen on a "dream" move to Real Madrid amid an apparently frosty relationship with Frank Lampard at Stamford Bridge.

And it is unclear whether Lampard would stand in Kante's way to attend a close friend's wedding.

As per this report, the reigning French champions will make a move to sign the French national team star this coming Summer.

A Chelsea spokesperson has however quashed the rumour and labelled it a "total nonsense" according to the Daily Mail.

It was only in May that the Chelsea boss allowed Kante to miss training for however long was necessary due to the midfielder's concerns about coronavirus.

Kante was also supported by his teammates and returned to join up with the squad to finish the season.

The France global was heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge over the worldwide transfer window, with Antonio Conte keen on a reunion with the midfielder at Inter.

Furthermore, Rice has time on his side to develop at just 21 years of age, whereas Kante is closing in on his thirties at 29 years old.

Real Madrid were among the potential suitors vying for the services of the 29-year-old but the harsh economic conditions did not help matters.

He is expected to feature for France in their Nations League clash with Croatia after playing out a 0-0 scoreline with Portugal.
