N'Golo Kante 'Wants To Leave Chelsea' After Falling Out With Frank Lampard Over A Wedding

It is being reported that N'Golo Kante could leave Chelsea after falling out with Frank Lampard over a wedding.

The World Cup-winning midfielder, who arrived at Stamford Bridge in a £32 million deal from Leicester City back in 2016, has become a key player for the Premier League side, making over 100 appearances for the club.

He has also featured in all four of Chelsea's opening Premier League fixtures but despite being in Lampard's first team plans, the Frenchman is reportedly unhappy after a fall-out with his manager.

French publication Le Parisien claim that Lampard refused to let Kante miss a training session to attend a friend's wedding before the international break.

The decision reportedly angered Kante, who is currently on international duty with France, and the 29-year-old is now seeking a move elsewhere, with Real Madrid being the 'dream' move.

Kante's representatives want to secure a transfer within the next 12 months, according to claims, despite the player having three years left on his current deal at Stamford Bridge.

Following the shock claims, Daily Telegraph correspondent Matt Law played down the story, saying there was "no issue" between the manager and player.

"Remember, it was Lampard who granted Kante compassionate leave when he was worried about Covid. No issue between manager and player." he wrote.

Kante has been linked with a move away from Chelsea for some time, with Inter Milan keen on signing the player. It was also reported in last month that Manchester United made a shock enquiry into the availability of Kante.
