N’GOLO KANTE insists he is committed to Chelsea despite speculation linking him to Real Madrid.
The Frenchman, 28, is under contract until 2023 and remains a key figure in the midfield under Frank Lampard.
He told Telefoot: “Of course (I could finish my career at Chelsea), today I am with Chelsea until 2023.
“So, in my head, I hope to continue to have great seasons with Chelsea until 2023.”
Kante was also asked if he felt he should have joined Marseille in his homeland instead of Leicester.
The two-time Premier League winner added: “Of course not. When I arrived at Chelsea, I was at Leicester and I had just won my first title with a club.
“Today at Chelsea, I have had three wonderful years winning titles. I think that it is a club that has helped me a lot and I hope that I will be able to win a lot more titles here.
