"Mourinho wants to sign Kante from Chelsea"-Agent


Jose Mourinho wants to sign N’Golo Kante from Chelsea, according to the agent of Axel Witsel.
Mourinho has targeted a centre-half throughout the entire summer, with Manchester United having signed central midfielder Fred, right-back Diogo Dalot and back-up keeper Lee Grant.
But Witsel’s agent says his client was wanted by the Premier League club.
He advised the Belgian against a move to United however, as Kante was his first choice.
Witsel completed a move to Borussia Dortmund earlier this month instead.
“There were other candidates. Manchester United wanted him, Napoli too,” Paul Stefani told Het Laatste Nieuws of Witsel.
“But I have told Axel: ‘At Dortmund you are the number one, at Manchester you are one of many… and at Napoli too’.
“I know from a very good source that Mourinho said he wanted Witsel, but not in the first place. N’Golo Kante topped his list.
“Eventually Axel said: ‘Do me a favour and finish it as quickly as possible, because I really want to go to Dortmund’.”
