Lots of talk he might be keen on PSG.

Even if they do manage to keep all their players, the dressing room does not sound optimistic there....
Lots of talk about two weeks ago...

Most recent thing I heard is that he cancelled a meeting set up by his agent and is about to be offered a 290k/week contract from us.
He's going nowhere.

That would be brilliant news for Chelsea and the EPL. I could not for the life of me, see how any team that had Kante would even contemplate selling him or not doing anything and everything to keep him.

For me, he was the best player at the World Cup and he single handedly took France to the final. Against us in the first game France played, without Kante, they would have been lucky to escape with a draw (the VAR joke helped them out as well).

Kante is one of the greatest footballers I have ever seen because of what he does and what he achieves for the teams he plays for. It's an "unfashionable" position/job he does and he is "unfashionable" but if you want to win anything, then he would be the first player that you would want to get. Leicester, with all due respect to the other players, would not have gone within cooee of winning the title without Kante.

He is truly unique. It's not everyday that you hear team mates and opponents alike say that when they play in games where he is playing, it seems that there are two or three of him on the pitch at the same time.

I really doubt that Brighton will finish bottom or be relegated and the same goes for Huddersfield. They are going to surprise I reckon.

I think Cardiff are odds on to go down. Kicking people to smithereens doesn't win you enough games these days to keep you up in this league.

PS. Juventus have a clown as a 'keeper and that will surely f**k them up!

We might get relegated, but be surprised if we sucked that badly!

Just need to score more consistently to be more competitive.

Nah, your lads won't get relegated.

Ryan has improved immeasurably and Hughton has signed what seem to be pretty good if unknown players. Bernardo goes good as does Jahanbakhsh and Bissouma and Florin Andone score goals as does Percy Tau although those last two will probably take time to get to grips with the nature of the EPL but nevertheless, instinctive goalscorers/poachers have a greater chance of turning out good than bells'n'whistles midfielders. That Nigerian International center half Balogun had a pretty good World Cup and he looks like a player that won't mind the physical stuff in the EPL.

Don't worry about your lads. Chris Hughton has assembled an alright squad that will score a bit more and be tighter at the back.
