Chelsea legend Pat Nevin has waded into the debate among Chelsea fans on whether Chelsea should consider selling N'Golo Kante.

Nevin told The Athletic that it makes more business sense than football sense to cash-in on the France International who turns 29 in March.

“I can understand why people are asking the question. Chelsea are pretty well-served in the midfield area,” he said.

“Kante is picking up more injuries now. The money you can get now from selling him to one of the bigger clubs would be quite astronomical.

“I would argue he needs to stay from more of a football point of view — he is more than just a holding player now. He breaks play up higher up the field, and he is brilliant at it.

“But is that offset though from the financial side of things and how you can spend the money? If he stays for a few more years, his value is negligible in comparison. It must be a temptation for the club to sell because of the quality of players coming through.”
