Pedro happy for Kante over new Chelsea deal

Chelsea interested in Manchester United striker Anthony Martial

The France worldwide has committed his future to the Blues for the next five years, much to the delight of the World Cup-winning midfielder.N'Golo Kante has signed a new contract at Chelsea, the club have confirmed.

France global Kante, 27, signed from Leicester in the summer of 2016, has been ever-present in Maurizio Sarri's side this season.

Talking about the new contract, the midfielder said that he is happy to prolong his stay with the club as he completely improved as a player during a two-year stay with the team.

In order to maintain their spot in the top four, Sarri says Chelsea need to be more aggressive from the start of matches, revealing his unhappiness with a "mental problem" in the past three games that has seen them drop points at home to Everton just before the global break and scrape past Crystal Palace the week before. Again, Gueye (228) is the only Premier League player with a better record over the same time period.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes his team can break into the Premier League's top four before the end of the year despite languishing in eighth place, seven points off the Champions League qualification spots.

"We are delighted N'Golo has signed a new contract and sees his long-term future with Chelsea". 'When he arrived, we knew we had signed a special player but he has astounded everybody with his tireless and unselfish displays. "We now look forward to five more years with N'Golo at the heart of the Chelsea midfield".

After scoring 27 goals in his debut campaign at Old Trafford following his £75 million ($96m) move from Everton, Lukaku began this season in equally fine form with four goals in his opening five games.

He said: "I am disappointed because we played very badly. He's important defensively, but he can score more and he can improve in the final 25 metres of the pitch", Sarri told a news conference.

Manchester United are unbeaten in their last 20 league games against Crystal Palace (W17 D3) since a 0-3 loss in May 1991.
