Saudi Arabia’s Al Ittihad, who targeted Son Heung-min, sign Kante on a four-year deal

N’Golo Kante will wear the colors of Al Ahly, the club that wanted Son Heung-min.

Al Ittihad officially announced the signing of N’Golo Kante via the club’s official website on Monday (July 21). According to highly reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano, Kante has signed a four-year contract with the club.

Al Ittihad joins a rush of star signings by Saudi clubs that began in earnest after Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Al Nasr. The Saudi league powerhouse, which has won nine Saudi Professional League titles, 10 King’s Cups, and two Asian Football Confederation (AFC) titles, is coached by Nuno Santu, formerly of Valencia, Wolverhampton, and Tottenham.

They made a splash with the signing of Karim Benzema and have now confirmed the signing of Kante. Kante is a legendary player who was once rated as the best midfielder in the world. Along with Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez, he was one of the key contributors to Leicester City’s historic English Premier League (EPL) title in 2015-16. 안전놀이터

Kante joined Chelsea shortly thereafter, and his form continued. He formed an excellent partnership with Nemanja Matic to lead Chelsea to the 2016-17 EPL title. Kante went on to play a key role in Chelsea’s 2018-19 UEFA Europa League (UEL) title and 2020-21 UEFA Champions League (UCL) title.

With France, he won the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and the UEFA Nations League (UNL) in 2020-21. Although he has been plagued by injuries for the past two years, Kante is still a player to reckon with on the pitch. But Kante couldn’t resist the lure of Saudi Arabia.
