Pep Guardiola: Operation N’Golo Kanté

Manchester City are in advanced discussions over the possible transfer of French international N’Golo Kanté from Leicester City, according to today’s edition of L’Équipe.

Pep Guardiola wants the Citizens to sign Kanté, and his new club has held two meetings with Kanté’s representatives, with the second occurring just yesterday.

Arsenal have also held their own meetings with Kanté’s representatives, and it is the Gunners whose arguments have been the most convincing to the former SM Caen man so far.

AFC and also Chelsea who have made discreet enquiries remain more interesting propositions for Kanté at the moment than Manchester City, according to the report.

The player has a €25m release clause.
