Manchester United Reportedly Agree Personal Terms With Barcelona World Cup Star

French midfielder N'Golo Kante labelled the "essential element" in the World Cup-winning side by Didier Deschamps, has been offered a new five-year contract by Chelsea, according to British media reports on Tuesday.

Having joined the Blues in the summer of 2016 following his Premier League triumph with Leicester City in a £30 million deal, the diminutive midfielder has established himself as the most important player at the club, along with Hazard. Now in the same quiet, unfussy way, he is set to overtake the likes of Eden Hazard, Willian and Baba Rahman to become Chelsea's highest paid player. He won the title with Chelsea in his debut season at the club while helping them to FA Cup success last season.

The 27-year-old midfielder showcased his imperious performances in Russian Federation as Les Bleus went all the way to taste World Cup success.

The newspaper reported yesterday that United's chief negotiator Matt Judge had flown out to Barcelona to try and thrash out a deal for Mina - who's also attracted interest from Everton and Wolves this summer.

Man Utd boss Mourinho pulls back from late transfer demands
Mourinho - who having guided United to Europa League and League Cup success in his first season - delivered nothing last term. Jose Mourinho has requested that several Manchester United players bring a premature end to their summer holidays.

Chelsea have no intention of letting him go, though.

According to English publication The Times, the 2018 World Cup victor is open to extending his stay at Stamford Bridge. He was one of the best performers for Columbia in that tournament and even came close to breaking England hearts when he scored a last-minute equaliser against them to force the game into extra time.

This comes after the 23-year-old reportedly rejected potential moves to both Everton and newly promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers, two teams that could have offered him Premier League football - which Villa, of course, cannot.
