Ranieri reveals Kante wasn’t his first choice to sign at Leicester but certainly didn’t want to him to Chelsea

Date Posted,April 9, 2017

Claudio Ranieri has revealed he did not want to sell N’Golo Kante to Chelsea.

Kante was one of Leicester’s star players in their incredible Premier League title winning campaign last season, but was sold to Chelsea for £30million during the summer.

Frenchman Kante has gone from strength to strength at Stamford Bridge and is in line to win his second title in as many years.

But Ranieri, who was brutally sacked as Leicester boss last month, admits the decision to allow Kante to leave was out of his hands.

“I didn’t want to sell Kante,” Ranieri said on Monday Night Football.
