​Ranieri would understand if Kante left Leicester

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri has admitted he would understand if N'Golo Kante decided to leave Leicester this summer.

When asked about Kante's future, Ranieri told the Leicester Mercury: "I don't know. I know one thing, we have offered a new deal of a contract to him.

"He wanted to wait because he wanted to finish Euro 2016. Now I hear there is so much speculation behind him.

"I don't want to lose him. I don't want to, but I could understand if he wants to go.

"At this point, I hope the team bring the maximum. I don't know about the money, I am not a manager, just a coach, so I don't speak about money. I say what I feel, I want him here."
