N’golo Kante Biography
N’Golo Kanté was born on 29 March 1991, he is a French professional footballer who plays as a defensive midfielder for English club Chelsea and the France national team.
He made his senior debut at Boulogne and then spent two seasons at Caen, the latter in Ligue 1. In 2015, he joined Leicester City for a fee of £5.6 million and became an integral member of the club’s first ever Premier League win in his only season at the club. The following year, he joined Chelsea for a reported fee of £32 million, winning the league again in his first season.
He also won the PFA Players’ Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year and became the first outfield player to win back-to-back English league titles with different clubs since Eric Cantona in 1992 and 1993.
Kanté made his senior international debut for France in 2016. He was included in their squad that finished runners-up at that year’s European Championship.

N’golo Kante Parents
Kanté’s parents migrated to France from Mali in 1980, and he grew up in a small flat in Rueil-Malmaison, Hauts-de-Seine. As of 2017, his younger sister was in the youth system at Suresnes.
At the start of his professional career at Boulogne, he commuted to training by kick scooter, and as of 2018 he drove a Mini Hatch, interpreted by BBC Sport’s Paul Fletcher as showing he is “uninterested in displaying his wealth”.
N’golo Kante Car
N’GOLO KANTE is still driving the same £20,000 Mini Cooper which collided with a lorry earlier this week.
The Chelsea star had the crash on the King’s Road as he made his way to Stamford Bridge for Wednesday night’s Carabao Cup clash against Arsenal. A fan who witnessed the accident told SunSport: “His wing mirror was smashed and his front wheel arch was all dented.
“He must have been pretty annoyed but he was more than happy for fans to take selfies with him.”
But despite pocketing £110,000-a-week in west London, Kante still rocked up to training on Friday morning in the very same vehicle. The front-left wheel arch remained completely torn off the car, while his wing mirror was reattached with what appeared to be gaffer tape. Humble Kante picked up the second-hand Mini when he joined Leicester City in 2015.
And despite winning two Premier League titles since then, he still refuses to spend big on a luxury motor. Kante explained: “I’ve never been someone who loves a car and when I was young I didn’t have the ambition of a car or something like that.
“But my Mini, for the beginning, was good to learn to drive on the left. I got it in Leicester and I still have it now. But it’s good.”
N’golo Kante House
In 2013, Kante bought a Mansion for $1.36 million in his hometown Paris which is a major European city and global center for culture, art, fashion and gastronomy. The present value of the House around $2 Million Dollars.

Born to Malian parents, Kanté was approached by Mali ahead of the 2015 African Cup of Nations having not played for France in any of their age group teams. Kanté declined on the basis that he was still trying to establish himself in Ligue 1. Mali issued a further invitation to Kanté in January 2016, although he stated that he was still undecided about which national team to represent should he get an invite from France.
On 17 March 2016, Kanté was selected for the France senior squad for the first time to face the Netherlands and Russia in friendlies. He made his debut against the former eight days later, replacing Lassana Diarra at half time in a 3–2 win at the Amsterdam Arena. On his 25th birthday, 29 March, he made his first start and scored to open a 4–2 win over Russia at the Stade de France; fellow birthday celebrant Dimitri Payet also scored.
On 10 June, Kanté appeared in his first competitive match for France by starting the opening match of Euro 2016 against Romania; he played the entire match, made the most passes, the most tackles, the most interceptions, covered the most distance on the pitch and assisted Dimitri Payet’s winning goal in a 2–1 victory.

In the round of 16 match against the Republic of Ireland at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais, Kanté picked up a yellow card in the 27th minute (his second of Euro 2016 which would cause him to be suspended from the quarter-final) and was replaced with Kingsley Coman in the 46th minute with the French trailing 0–1 at half time. Kanté was unused in the final, which France lost 1–0 to Portugal after extra time.
On May 17 2018, he was called up to the 23 man French squad for the 2018 World cup in Russia.

Kante Leicester City
Kanté was scouted for Premier League club Leicester City by Steve Walsh, who had previously facilitated the transfers of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez to the team. On 3 August 2015, he joined Leicester on a four-year contract, for an undisclosed fee reported to be €8 million (£5.6 million).
He made his debut five days later by replacing Vardy for the final eight minutes of a 4–2 home win over Sunderland. On 7 November, he scored his first Premier League goal in a 2–1 home win against Watford.
He earned much praise and many plaudits for his consistently impressive displays for Leicester, and was widely considered to be a major factor in the club’s excellent form as they went on to win the Premier League, consistently making a high number of tackles and interceptions. In April, he was one of four Leicester players named in the PFA Team of the Year.
By the end of the season, Kanté had managed 175 tackles (31 more than any other player) and 157 interceptions (15 more than any other player), topping the defensive stats at the end of the 2015–16 Premier League season.
Kanté was the only key member of the squad to leave the club in the summer of 2016. His departure proved a major factor in Leicester’s sharp decline in form in the 2016–17 season, as the club was unable to find an equally skilled midfielder to replace him.
Kante picked up a hamstring injury with France during the international break just gone and has missed Chelsea’s last two games.
The Blues have struggled in the 26-year-old’s absence, losing to Crystal Palace 2-1 over the weekend and following it up with a 3-3 Champions League draw at home to Roma.
The former Leicester midfielder is expected to miss the next two league outings against Watford and Bournemouth, as well as a Carabao Cup visit of Everton. But Conte is hopeful of having Kante back in action for their crucial home game with Manchester United on November 5.
The Chelsea manager admits he could even return to match fitness before the end of the month for their reverse Group C fixture in Rome. Conte said: “I hope to have Kante back before the international break, he is progressing well – the scan was better than before.
“N’Golo has started to work, not with the group, but to get himself fit. “He could be an option (For Roma or Manchester United). If Kante is available I will be very happy.”

CHELSEA fans voted N’Golo Kante their player of the year at the club’s annual awards night.
The Frenchman, 27, has been a hugely popular addition since arriving from Leicester, winning the title in his first season. And despite the Blues’ nightmare defence of their trophy, Kante managed to shine and get recognition from the supporters.
Willian, 29, scooped the players’ player gong after another strong campaign on the right flank. And Andreas Christensen was named Young Player of the Season after forcing his way into the side. The whizkid, 22, returned from loan at Borussia Monchengladbach to prove he is a force to be reckoned with.
PSG ready to pay over £100m for No 1 target N’Golo Kante as Chelsea eye Lyon youngster Tanguy Ndombele as replacement for France midfielder
Daily Mail – 7 July, 2018
Paris Saint-Germain are prepared to pay more than £100million to sign Chelsea star N’Golo Kante this summer, according to a new report.
Goal claim that the Ligue 1 giants have made Kante their No 1 target and that they could include wantaway midfielder Adrien Rabiot as part of the deal.
The France midfielder, who will face Uruguay in the quarter-finals of the World Cup on Friday, would almost double his wages if he moved to the Parc des Princes. Big-spending PSG are ready to offer Kante a long-term contract worth £220,000-a-week – a £100,000 increase on his current terms at Stamford Bridge.
However, the Blues could choose to fend off interest in the former Leicester City man by offering him an improved deal worth a similar amount.If Kante does return to France, Chelsea have already begun eyeing Lyon youngster Tanguy Ndombele as a possible replacement.
The 21-year-old, who has also been linked with Tottenham and Liverpool, plays in a similar defensive midfield role to Kante and impressed on loan before signing a permanent deal with the club earlier this month.
Chelsea’s transfer business has been affected by confusion surrounding their managerial situation, with Antonio Conte still expected to leave his position.
Former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri is on the brink of replacing the Italian in west London, with a £5.6m-a-year contract already having been agreed.
Last season’s FA Cup winners remain in talks with CSKA Moscow over a deal worth £27m for Russian World Cup star Aleksandr Golovin.

N’Golo Kante amazes Paul Pogba and France teammates with his performance against Peru
Metro – 21st June, 2018
Paul Pogba hailed N’Golo Kante as the man with ’15 lungs’ following the Chelsea midfielder’s impressive display in France’s victory over Peru on Thursday. Kylian Mbappe’s goal in the first half was enough for Didier Deschamps’ side to secure their second win in Group C after they edged past Australia in their opening fixture last week.
Kante partnered Pogba in central midfield and played a key role by constantly diffusing Peru’s attacks. And the Manchester United star was impressed with the performance of Chelsea’s defensive midfielder. ‘We were all very, very good together,’ Pogba said after the win.
‘With N’Golo it’s easier, he runs everywhere, he has fifteen lungs.
‘Football is much easier with players like that.
‘It was a very good team performance. What was important was the win.’
France’s left-back Lucas Hernandez was also amazed by Kante’s display. ‘N’Golo, you see him everywhere, all of a sudden he comes out of the ground!’ he said. ‘Frankly, it’s really amazing to play with a player like that, someone who wins you back I do not know how many balls in a match. ‘I hope he continues like this.’
