Midfielder N’Golo Kante, who played for the French national soccer team and English professional soccer team Chelsea, has been confirmed to go to Saudi Arabia.
Al Ittihad of the Saudi League officially announced the signing of Kante on the 21st (Korean time).
The term of his contract is three years, and Kante will earn £86 million (about 140 billion won) in revenue from this contract, according to the British BBC.
Kante is a 32-year-old veteran midfielder who has won the Premier League (EPL), the English Football Association (FA) Cup, and the European Football Association (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) on the English stage.
He was the main player in the story of Leicester City winning the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2015-2016 season, and even after moving to Chelsea in 2016, he continued to play an active role as a main player for six seasons.
He helped France win the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Kante suffered a hamstring injury in the 2022-2023 season, limiting him to nine appearances for his team.
As a player of his age, this advance to the Saudi league is expected to be the last chapter in Kante’s football career.안전놀이터
