Money not a problem – Malouda names players Chelsea must not allow to leave the club
Former Chelsea star Florent Malouda has told the West London side to ensure that midfielder N’Golo Kante remains at the club.
This is following the speculation surrounding the Frenchman’s future with Arsenal motoring his situation at Stamford Bridge.
He said the club should offer the France international a new long-term contract amid ongoing speculation on the midfielder’s future.
Kante has not found life easy this season especially with injury keeping him away for months.
Kante’s contract at Stamford Bridge will expire in the summer and although the indication is that he is on the verge of signing a new deal.
Malouda believes it is imperative that the midfielder is retained by whoever ends up taking over permanently from Potter.
“I believe that they [Mount and Kante] are part of the DNA of the club, they’ve been there for a long time and have been very successful.
“Mason Mount is from the academy and loves the club.
“If you want to stay somewhere, financially it is not an issue, it is more about the project and your role within that.”
