N’Golo Kante could leave Chelsea in January, after falling out with Frank Lampard, according to Le Parisien.
It is understood both men fell out, after Lampard refused to let Kante skip training to attend a friend’s wedding before the international break.
It left the 29-year-old midfielder fuming with the Blues boss.
Kante is now eyeing a move to Real Madrid and his agents want to secure a transfer within the next 12 months.
The Frenchman still has under three years left remaining on his current deal.
Kante moved to Chelsea from Leicester City in 2016.
He has gone on to make 175 appearances for the London club and won one Premier League title, one FA Cup triumph and the Europa League.
