Chelsea's N'Golo Kante confirms PSG made 'contact' after World Cup

Chelsea star Eden Hazard honoured in Belgium after 2018 World Cup success

The major honours continued to roll in for the holding midfielder as he anchored France on their way to World Cup glory this year, with those performances heightening speculation Paris Saint-Germain were keen to sign the 27-year-old.

The PFA Player Of The Year for 2016-17, Kante joined Chelsea in the summer of 2016 from Leicester for £32 million, having been an integral part of their incredible Premier League title-winning campaign.

Hazard's current contract at Chelsea FC is due to expire in the summer of 2020, and it remains to be seen whether the Blues may choose to cash in 2019 rather than risk losing him on a free transfer the following year.

"There was no particular desire to go somewhere after the World Cup", Kante told RMC Sport.

'There was interest from other clubs, but after speaking with Chelsea, things were clear. "The next logical step was to continue at Chelsea".

'There were some contacts [from PSG],' he said.

"I am with Chelsea - staying with Chelsea is good for me". I am at Chelsea.

French champions PSG had hoped to lure Kante to Parc de Princes to help spearhead their assault on the Champions League, but it now looks as though they will have to turn their attentions elsewhere as the France star has committed himself to remaining in London.

"I am with Chelsea - staying with Chelsea is good for me".
