With the new contract, Kante will be the best-paid player on their squad, ahead of Eden Hazard.

Mina failed to break into Ernesto Valverde's plans, playing just five times in the league after his January move from Palmeiras.

According to reports from Spanish media house, Mundo Deportivo, (h/t Bristol Post), Premier League giants, Manchester United, are close to agreeing on a transfer fee with Barcelona for Colombian global, Yerry Mina.

Chelsea have, according to The Times, offered midfielder and World Cup victor N'Golo Kante a new contract - in a deal that is worth £290,000-a-week, which in turn would make the Frenchman the club's highest paid player in Chelsea history. "We're always very respectful with the players that play for other clubs", he added, as reported by ESPN.

Hazard is now the best-paid player at Chelsea at £220,000-a-week, with the Belgian ace yet to sign a new offer from the club reportedly worth upwards of £300,000-a-week.
