Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has revealed that he is “for sure” keen on continuing at Stamford Bridge amid the overhaul being overseen by new owners Boehly-Clearlake.
A big transfer spend of around £600m has not worked out for the West London side this campaign, with their chances of qualifying for European football over, yet he has backed the club to get back on the right path soon.
“For sure,” he told Sky Sports when asked if he wants to be a part of the club’s new project.

“It’s an exciting project for the club. Unfortunately this season hasn’t been to Chelsea’s standards.
“But everyone wants to go in this way, the way of success and winning titles. “I hope this club will again fight in this direction.
“Let’s see where I will be but I hope that this is a change for the club, that is most important.”
Kante’s contract will expire in the summer yet, as it was reported recently, he is expected to sign a new contract despite interest from Barcelona.
The 32-year-old has been a key player in the Chelsea team once again since his return from a long-term hamstring injury, with the Frenchman describing his happiness at finally ending his lay-off.
“It was the purpose of the surgery, to come back strong,” Kante said.
“At the moment I feel good, hopefully it’ll carry on like this. For the last weeks I’ve been playing I’ve felt very good.
“Hopefully I can carry on for the rest of the season and hopefully the most difficult part is behind me, and I’m able to forget it – enjoying football again and wins again. Hopefully more success [too].”
