Chelsea star N’Golo Kante has admitted that manager Thomas Tuchel tried to sign him for Paris Saint-Germain while he was coach of the French.
Tuchel was the coach of the French club before being sacked earlier this season and appointed to Chelsea.
Now the two have had a chance to work together, but Kante could have been playing for Tuchel in France if things had turned out differently.
It is the French midfielder himself who has revealed the German coach’s interest in him in the past.
“I knew he had some contact with Paris Saint-Germain in the past when he was manager, but it was not something I wanted,” Kante initially said.
“It did not happen because I was happy at Chelsea and I stayed here.”
“I have not spoken to the manager about this,” concluded the French midfielder of Bluve. / Telegraphy /
