Kanté, who has two years left on his current deal at Stamford Bridge, has sealed his status as one of the best defensive midfielders across the globe since he swapped Leicester for Chelsea in 2016.

The 30-year-old has taken his game to another level in recent years, and were it not for France's shock exit at the hands of Switzerland in the Round of 16 stage of the European Championships, the former SM Caen star was odds on to claim the prestigious Ballon d'Or award. 

A contract offer has been in the pipeline for Kante for quite some time as it was reported back in June that Chelsea would hand the midfielder a 'long-term deal'.
