Friction with coach Frank Lampard could be decisive for Kanté to say goodbye to Chelsea next year. Coveted by other European giants, the French midfielder would be considering leaving the club after falling out with the coach for not being allowed to go to a wedding.
According to the newspaper “Le Parisien”, Kanté was hurt after Lampard said “no” to the player’s request that he could skip training to go to a friend’s wedding. As a result, the relationship between the midfielder and the coach would have gone sour in recent weeks, raising the possibility that the player might leave the London team.
With a contract until 2023, Kanté has been coveted by other European giants for some time, and in the last window, he saw Inter Milan appear as interested in his hiring. At the time, Lampard guaranteed that Chelsea did not think about selling the player, calling the Frenchman “fundamental” for his team.
