N’Golo Kante could leave Chelsea in January after falling out with Frank Lampard over a wedding and dreams of a move to Real Madrid, according to reports.
The French midfielder is one of the top midfielders in the world and is currently on international duty with his country ahead of a mouth-watering tie with Croatia on Tuesday night.
But French news outlet Le Parisien claimed Lampard refused to let Kante skip training to attend a friend’s wedding before the international break which angered the 29-year-old.

And the report also claims that Kante is dreaming of a move to Real Madrid and his representatives want to secure a Chelsea exit within the next 12 months, even though the LaLiga side are yet to register their interest in the player.
The Frenchman still has under three years left remaining at Stamford Bridge but has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge for most of this year.
Kante and Lampard came into the season on good terms after the Chelsea manager allowed the midfielder to take compassionate leave after the player had concerns about coming into training during lockdown.

The 29-year-old had a difficult time with coronavirus symptoms during the season’s hiatus earlier this year and had doubts over whether it was right for the Premier League to return in June.
Kante ended the season with Chelsea and did not leave the club during the summer transfer window, but the latest debacle could change his future at the club.
The Frenchman joined the west Londoners in 2016 having just won the top-flight title with Leicester City.
Kante has since played 175 side for the Blues and has helped them win one Premier League title, one FA Cup triumph and the 2019 Europa League trophy.
