Kevin De Bruyne names £30m Chelsea player in his dream five-a-side team
Kevin De Bruyne selected Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante to be part of his ultimate five-a-side team.
Speaking to Rio Ferdinand, the Manchester City magician wanted Kante in his dream quintet.
Ferdinand gave De Bruyne the choice of players he’s featured alongside, or just in general.
He opted for the latter, just to give himself even extra options.
And what a canvas the Belgian had to choose from.
Who did De Bruyne pick?
In typical attacking fashion, the City maestro went without a goalkeeper.
De Bruyne kick started his selection process with two all-stars from Paris Saint-Germain.
“(Lionel) Messi is going to be there for me. Neymar is going to be there for me,” he said.
Then his focus was redirected to the Premier League and Stamford Bridge.
“Kante, I need Kante,” continued De Bruyne.
“I’m going say Virgil van Dijk. If it’s five-a-side, I’m going to put Bernardo (Silva) in.”
Kante gets the call-up
Not a bad handful of choices in the slightest.
After all, he wouldn’t want Kante flying their flag?
The Frenchman can pretty much cover for two men, such is his energy and enthusiasm to hunt down opponents.
His ability to sniff out and then snuff out danger remains unparalleled.
Leicester City owe a lot of their incredible league title victory to the pinch-sized Parisian.
As do Chelsea after they signed Kante from the Foxes for £30m (BBC) over half a decade ago.
He and Van Dijk can sweep up the mess in De Bruyne’s side, whilst Messi, Neymar and Silva show off their attacking muscles.
It says a lot about how valued the City forward has become that he’s joined the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner and the world’s most expensive player in this list.
Does anyone else now want to see these five in action together?
