Chelsea has a tough challenge on their hands to keep hold of one of their best players.

Chelsea was banned from signing players last summer and they have been struggling to find the right player this month.

However, recent reports from Star Sports shows that there might be more problems for them.

The report claims that N’Golo Kante is setting his sight on a move away from Stamford Bridge next summer. He is apparently looking for a new challenge.

It is further revealed by the publication that his preferred destination is Real Madrid.

Kante has helped Chelsea win the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League since he joined them from Leicester City.

He has been courted by several teams since he signed and he has continually committed his future to the Blues.

His current deal expires in 2023, but he looks set to ask for a move.

Star Sports revealed that Kante and Zinedine Zidane are in constant contact and the French World Cup winner knows how highly thought of he is at the Bernabeu.

Chelsea can, however, keep hold of their star man as Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez considers Casimero a better defensive midfielder. This would make it tough for Zidane to convince him to splash the cash on Kante.
