N'Golo Kante Completes Al-Ittihad Medical

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante has reportedly completed a medical ahead of his €100m-per-season transfer to Saudi Pro League side Al-Ittihad.

It was initially revealed on Monday that Saudi officials had travelled to London for talks with Kante, and Fabrizio Romano is now reporting that a deal has been official completed. It is understood that Kante will earn a whopping €200m (£172.1m/$213.8m) over two years at Al-Ittihad. According to Romano, Kante completed his medical in London on Wednesday, and an official announcement is now on the way from the Saudi club.

The World Cup winner will link up with former Real Madrid talisman Karim Benzema at his new club, who won the league last season. The pair will be competing against Cristiano Ronaldo's Al-Nassr for trophies during the 2023-24 campaign.

Kante will depart Stamford Bridge with his status as a Chelsea icon secured. He helped the Blues win the Premier League title in 2017, in what was his maiden season at the club, while also putting in a player-of-the-match performance in the 2021 Champions League final against Manchester City.
