Harry Maguire, Jamie Vardy Unlikely to Face Man United in Season Opener

Harry Maguire, Jamie Vardy Unlikely to Face Man United in Season Opener

The Times says the Blues have offered their midfield lynchpin a new contract worth £290,000 a week to fend off interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

Interestingly the Times state that the deal on the table would be for five years, nearly doubling Kante's existing wages and taking him clear of current top earner Eden Hazard, who is now on £220,000-a-week. He won the title with Chelsea in his debut season at the club while helping them to FA Cup success last season.

The two-time Premier League winners' new terms will make him the club's highest-ever paid player at the moment as Hazard is on £200k-a-week.

Manchester United have opened talks with the entourage of Everton and Wolves target Yerry Mina over the possibility of signing him this summer. Jose Mourinho has time and again picked up the topic of missing some of his key players in the pre-season tour. After the tournament, his worldwide teammate Kylian Mbappe, who plays for PSG, confessed to trying to convince Kante into making the switch to the Parc des Princes.

Televised footage of the event showed the president speaking at an outdoor military event when he pauses and looks up to the sky. Venezuela, a once-wealthy oil nation, is in the grips of a five-year crisis under President Maduro's socialist government.

The midfielder is set to stay at Stamford Bridge as he has not shown any interest in moving to France. He is, basically, very happy. However, TEAMtalk reports that the Argentina global is attracting plenty of attention and Everton are preparing for possibly missing out on the defender.

The 28-year-old has made 107 appearances for the Red Devils since joining the club from Sporting Lisbon in 2014. This is to keep the Belgian out of Real Madrid's clutches as the Spanish giants search the market for someone to replace Cristiano Ronaldo.

He has also been on the agenda of Premier League new boys Wolves.
