According to the reports from Fabrizio Romano, the contract extension of Kante is not done as yet. Although the talks were at an advanced stage a few weeks ago, the situation has become unclear again. However, the Chelsea board will sit with Kante's representatives again for further talks. The parties will seal the Frenchman's future soon. There are reports linking the former Leicester City man with Saudi Arabia this summer.
Chelsea have announced the appointment of Mauricio Pochettino as the new manager.

With his appointment, Chelsea owner Todd Boehly would be prioritizing the clear-out during the summer
