Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante reportedly has the ambition of joining Real Madrid in the future.
Kante had a disappointing 2019/2020 season with the Blues where he was in-and-out of the team due to multiple injury concerns.
He has started the current season on a bright note without any niggles, but he continues to be linked with a possible move elsewhere.
According to Le Parisien, Kante’s relationship with Lampard has supposedly become strained in recent weeks and that could pave the way for his exit.
Kante had recently wanted to miss training to attend his friend’s wedding, but the request was denied by the Blues head coach.
The midfielder was very disappointed with the decision and it is now reported that he could push for a dream move to the Bernabeu.
Los Blancos made no high-profile signings last summer, but they are expected to pursue a new defensive midfielder at the end of this season.
Rennes teenager Eduardo Camavinga remains their top target, but they could be tempted by the availability of Kante next summer.
