Al Ittihad are managed by former Wolves and Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo and finished five points ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr – who came second – last season.

Kante leaves Chelsea after seven years at Stamford Bridge

Kante was among the best players in Premier League history, having won the English elite league with two different clubs, Leicester and Chelsea.

With the Blues, he dominated European competitions with the Champions League, Europa League, and UEFA Super Cup titles.

However, the Frenchman’s most recent season was plagued by injuries, as he missed 38 matches in all competitions, with Chelsea struggling without him and finishing 12th in the league.

Saudi Arabia are signing some of world football’s most desired talent this summer – but why is this happening, and what is to come?

In 2023 alone, Cristiano Ronaldo moved to the Middle Eastern nation on a free transfer, with Ballon D’Or winner Karim Benzema turning down another season at Real Madrid to join him in the country.

That is by no means the end, with as many as five Chelsea players set to leave the Premier League side for the Saudi Pro League, Sergio Ramos, Bernardo Silva, and Heung-Min Son reportedly facing similar offers.
