Man Utd hoping for Chelsea encouragement in Kante push

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante is being linked with Manchester United.

The Mirror says a deal could be struck if Chelsea do not demand a substantial fee.

Kante would be an instant improvement on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's current options in the defensive midfield role.

One of Nemanja Matic, Fred or Scott McTominay usually partners Paul Pogba in sitting in front of the back four.

If Kante completed a switch to Old Trafford he would rekindle his partnership with his France international team-mate Paul Pogba.

The pair won the 2018 World Cup together while pulling the strings from the centre of the park.
