Ex-Inter Milan chief Moratti urges club to sign Chelsea star N'Golo Kante and compares his transfer to Wesley Sneijder

FORMER Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti believes Chelsea anchorman N'Golo Kante would make the newly-crowned Serie A winners "exceptional".

Moratti claims the 30-year-old would match the legendary influence of 2009-10 Treble-winner Wesley Sneijder.

And he dreams of Inter's ex-Chelsea manager Antonio Conte reuniting with the French World Cup winner.

But he admits it would be "hard" to sign a player who has battled back well under Blues' chief Thomas Tuchel following hamstring injuries.   

Ex-Holland midfielder Sneijder arrived at Inter from Real Madrid to scoop Serie A, the Champions League and the Coppa Italia in his first season.

And Moratti told Sky Sport Italia: “I think Kante has everything to give even more strength to Inter. 

"We signed Wesley Sneijder even if we already had a solid team, but we became exceptional with him.

“The same is true of Kante. But, I am saying this as a fan, it will be hard to sign him.”

Conte led Chelsea to the Premier League crown in his first campaign at Stamford Bridge, 2016-17, having made Kante his major pre-season buy.

That gave Kante two Prem titles in a row as Leicester famously romped home by ten points in 2015-16.

And as Tuchel gradually puts his own imprint on the Chelsea squad, Kante might be intrigued by working with Conte once more.

But the ex-Caen star remains one of the Prem's top defensive midfielders.
