Breaking News ! Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has described Chelsea star N'Golo Kante as the most "beloved player in the history of football".

The pair were central to helping France win the FIFA World Cup in Russia in 2018 and will be hoping to dominate Les Blues' midfield when the European Championship's get underway in less than a month's time. Kante, who joined Chelsea from Leicester City in the summer of 2016 following an outstanding campaign with the Foxes, helping them win the Premier League title, has developed into one of the best all-round midfielders in the world, with it frequently being suggested that he can do the jobs that two or three players would struggle to do.
