Paul Pogba leads French celebrations with a song for N'Golo Kante

While one midfielder is on the brink of joining the club, one man could be on his way out, with reports in Italy claiming that Barcelona are interested in signing N'Golo Kante. The 27-year-old was instrumental in France winning the tournament, putting in a series of brilliant performances.

'His pass quality is excellent and he crosses the lines. Frankly, it's a big plus to have a Kante on your team, ' Lineker added. I'm a Kante fan. He runs everywhere. He's a real thief. In his position, he's the best player I've ever seen. The way he takes the ball from the feet of his opponents, without them appearing to notice, is incredible.

But Gary Lineker recommends the Catalans put their money on N'Golo Kante and prize him out of Chelsea.
