Manchester United: Erik Ten Hag wants to sign N’Golo Kante

Manchester United are set for a huge revolution at Old Trafford this summer with the arrival of Erik ten Hag, and now transfer speculation surrounding one particular transfer target has emerged.

What’s the latest?

According to the Daily Mirror, the new Man United boss wants to sign N’Golo Kante from Chelsea this summer and reportedly believes the midfielder still has the ability and experience to help the young players at Old Trafford next season.

Kante has one year left on his contract at Stamford Bridge and the report suggests that ten Hag believes the midfield at his new club needs a drastic overhaul, with the manager searching for upgrades to better the quality in the centre of the pitch.

Ten Hag needs Kante

There is no doubt that Man United’s midfield is in desperate need of a player that can look after the ball better and dominate possession which is why it makes perfect sense for the club to sign Kante because when you look at the current choices Ten Hag definitely needs him.

On average per game the Red Devils lose possession 134.9 times in the Premier League, with the side recording their lowest possession percentages (28%) since Premier League records began against Liverpool at Anfield this season.

Where did Manchester United sign David Beckham from?

With that being said, adding the quality and experience of the 31-year-old French World Cup winner into their midfield next season would be a no-brainer for Ten Hag as he endeavours to improve the squad and compete for trophies.

The £45m-rated gem, who was initially signed for £30m, was dubbed “faster than the train” by France manager Didier Deschamps has made 145 ball recoveries, won 145 duels, made 25 interceptions, has a tackle success rate of 53%, scoring two goals and contributing four assists in 24 Premier League appearances this season.

Kante has been the recipient of high praise for his career achievements with the star winning back to back Premier League title’s with Leicester City and Chelsea, as well as picking up a Champions League and a World Cup and Ally McCoist claimed the midfielder was “magic” following his performances in the London club’s successful campaign in the Champions League last season.

Should Man United sign Kante?

No

Ultimately, the Frenchman would be a fantastic signing for Man United in their pursuit to make a comeback following a disappointing campaign this season and would surely add the star quality needed in the centre of the pitch if Ten Hag could secure his signature this summer.
