Brazilian media outlet Esporte UOL is reporting that the French big spenders are preparing a €60m offer to Chelsea for Kante this summer.

The soon to be crowned Ligue 1 champions will be hoping Kante will be tempted by a return to his native France and become part of the Qatari revolution at PSG.

PSG will be looking for a replacement for Brazilian Thiago Motta who’s contract will expire on June 30th, making him a free-agent. With the player now at the age of 35, PSG has decided not to offer him an extended deal.

Only last week it was reported that the Parisians were close to a deal for Monaco and Brazil holding midfielder Fabinho, but it seems that deal is some way off meaning PSG have started to look at other alternatives in case the deal does not happen.

The move may, however, be hampered by UEFA FFP rules, meaning a move for either Fabinho or Kante may be off this summer unless the club raises some much-needed cash. They have already committed to spending £160m this summer on Kylian Mbappe after he reached the minimum threshold of games to active the transfer fee.

The Parisians who sold some players over the January transfer window to try and appease the UEFA FFP rules have until the summer to satisfy the European governing body without facing sanctions, which could include expulsion from next seasons Champions League. The governing body is now looking into commercials deals the club have made which are linked to the Qatari owners.

It is suggested many of these commercials deals have been inflated to make it look like more money is coming into the club than the true amount.
