Kylian Mbappe believes N'Golo Kante would suit Paris Saint-Germain 'perfectly'
Last Updated: 02/05/18 9:44am
Kylian Mbappe says he would love Paris Saint-Germain to bring Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante back to France.
Kante won back-to-back Premier League titles with Leicester and Chelsea respectively, following his arrival from Caen in 2015, and won the PFA and FWA Player of the Year awards in his first season at Stamford Bridge last year.
Chelsea have struggled for consistency in the league during Antonio Conte's second season in charge and are set to miss out on Champions League qualification for the second time in three years, with the club five points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham and only three games left in the campaign.
I think he's a player that would suit our team perfectly. He is French; to bring back a Frenchman for the attractiveness of our championship would be good
Kylian Mbappe on N'Golo Kante
PSG will be looking for a new head coach this summer after Unai Emery revealed he will leave the French champions at the end of the season and Mbappe believes his countryman would be an ideal signing for whoever takes the reigns at the Parc des Princes.
"Kante is the one player I would like at PSG, according to our needs and also the quality of the player," Mbappe, who is coming to the end of a season-long loan move prior to a permanent move from Monaco, told beIN Sports.
"I think he's a player that would suit our team perfectly. He is French; to bring back a Frenchman for the attractiveness of our championship would be good.
"I think all the French like N'Golo Kante, and it would be a pleasure to have him in our league."
Mbappe and Kante are both expected to be integral members of France's World Cup squad in Russia this summer as Didier Deschamps looks to complete the double of winning the tournament as both a player and coach.
Should Tottenham defeat West Brom on Saturday, Chelsea would likely need to beat third-placed Liverpool on Sunday, live on Sky Sports Premier League, due to their much inferior goal difference compared with their two rivals for Champions League qualification.
