Man Utd To Sign N’Golo Kante To Replace Ander Herrera

N’Golo Kante To Replace Ander Herrera

Ander Herrera is set to leave Manchester United and join Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer this summer, and Chelsea star N’Golo Kante should be his replacement.

According to ex-Liverpool defender Dominic Matteo, N'Golo Kante, who lifted the PFA Players' Player of the Year trophy in 2017, could join the Red Devils in a stunning switch as Herrera looks set to seal a deal with the French giants.

The Spaniard has been widely linked with an exit from Old Trafford after failing to agree a new deal with the club, and his perfect replacement could already be playing in England.

” Kante's been playing in that position for Chelsea,” Matteo said on the Man On The Street show.

“But it doesn't look like he's going to get a game there in front of Jorginho.

“For United, he would definitely be top of the list.”

Kante has been moved away from his favoured role this season – with Maurizio Sarri preferring Jorginho in a central role.

Ex-Scotland international Matteo added about the World Cup winner: “He's probably the best holding midfielder in world football.

“If United play Herrera and [Nemanja] Matic together, there's not enough creativity.

“One player should sit and control things as the rest of them get forward.
