France players identify teammate who helped them win 2018 World Cup

Tiemoue Bakayoko has congratulated both N'Golo Kante and Olivier Giroud following their performances for France at this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Barcelona superstar Sergio Busquets has reportedly sent a warning note to his Spanish League side to forget about him once they sign Chelsea star N'Golo Kante this summer.

Kante, who is now preparing to take a starring role in the World Cup final, is also a target French Champions PSG, and Chelsea's lack of Champions League football could ultimately be decisive should either Barca or PSG come calling.

Ngolo Kante is happy to remain at Chelsea.

His teammates sang to the 27-year-old, "N'Golo Kante, N'Golo Kante, he's short, he's attractive, he's the one that stopped Leo Messi, N'Golo Kante".

Busquets sees Kante's signing as a direct threat to his future at the club and he has sent an ultimatum to Barca chiefs.

"He's someone who plays at the service of his teammates". With Kanté, France plays at twelve. He counts as two midfielders on his own.

'His pass quality is excellent and he crosses the lines. Honestly, it's a huge advantage to have Kante in the team. He's one of the keys to the trajectory of this French team.

"I'm a big fan", he confessed.

'N'Golo has been for me, until now, the player of this World Cup.

"He has an incredibly reading of the game". He runs everywhere and is a true pickpocket. The way he takes the ball from the feet of his opponents, without them appearing to notice, is incredible.

"But Croatia do not have such a supporting midfielder as N'Golo Kante, able to close the centre of the field and prevent the opponent from turning around".
