Chelsea regret N’Golo Kante as Manchester United force Thomas Tuchel to make Jorginho – Anita Abayomi – decision

N’Golo Kante and Jorginho will both be out of contract with Chelsea in 2023. As scary as that sounds, there might be a chance to save at least one of them. If you had to choose, who would you choose to stay for at least four more years?

There are so many ways this scenario could play out. Chelsea could be caught in a whirlwind of trouble, or they can emerge from this situation stronger than ever. According to The Guardian, Erik ten Hag has expressed interest in N’Golo Kante to strengthen his Manchester United squad.

Knowing this, I would stick with one particular player for reasons beyond Chelsea’s advantage.

The Chelsea fanbase has been divided on their opinion of Jorginho over the past couple of seasons. Despite being a technically gifted player, he seems quite limited in terms of defensive skills. He’s not your typical, traditional DM. Some refer to him as the “Regista”: a deep-rooted visionary, the puppeteer in midfield. When he leaves the bridge, it will be extremely difficult to replace him. In fact, Thomas Tuchel may have to consider a situation where he abandons the idea of ​​a regista and opts for a more traditional midfielder like Yves Bissouma or Declan Rice.

I think this option would not be so bad. It will bring a degree of balance to the team that fans have been singing for for a while. The midfield has yet to fully recover since Nemanja Matic’s departure in 2017. Fortunately, Chelsea have a special player who has made them one of the most annoying teams. Imagine playing against a fully fit, in-form N’Golo Kante. He’s unrivaled and that’s why he’s the player I would save.

Manchester United are said to be interested in signing Kante this summer. I find the idea quite funny. They will lose Paul Pogba on a free transfer this season and potentially half their squad, but they would like to work on Kante. The two Frenchmen in midfield form a deadly partnership. We’ve seen them tear up opponents for the France national team. Kante and Pogba are the dream team, not Kante and Scott McTominay.

It will be an unforgiving circumstance if the Blues let Kante go to Man United. We wouldn’t just lose a player who, despite his injury problems, ages like fine wine. We’re also reinforcing a team that could fight alongside us for a top 4 spot next season. The day I have to see Kante in a red shirt shutting down Mason Mount or any other Chelsea player, the fan in me would probably go insane.

It really is child’s play. I’m a big fan of both midfielders but to raise money for Thomas Tuchel’s perfect rebuild, a player may have to go. When it comes down to it, Jorginho should make his long-awaited return to Italy. His agent once described returning to Italy as his “dream”. Instead of selling to our top four rivals on N’Golo Kante, let’s fulfill Jorginho’s dream instead.
