Ranieri urges Kante to make decision on his future

Chelsea are the favourites to sign the midfielder

Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has urged holding midfielder N’Golo Kante to decide his future soon rather than later.

Chelsea looked set to sign the France international for around £30 million, but the Premier League champions offered Kante a new contract to give him some food for thought.

Now that the deals are on the table for Kante, the Foxes’ boss Ranieri is pressing the 25-year old to make his decision.

‘I can understand’

“We offered a new contract to him, he went away because he wanted to finish Euro 2016 and now there is so much speculation around him. I don’t want to lose him but I can understand if he wants to go,” said Ranieri.

“I would like to know to be sure who stays with me or not, because the friendly matches start now and I have to start to manage and change and try things.”
