Kanté rumour triggers very sweary tweet from Gary Lineker

Pundit Gary Lineker’s Leicester bias shone through last night when he tweeted about N'Golo Kanté.

The French footballer, who was a key part of Leicester’s title-winning team last season, is strongly rumoured to be joining Chelsea.

The London club are now managed by Antonio Conte, prompting this alliterative but foul-mouthed tweet from Lineker.

Alright Gary, calm down. Footballers transfer all the time, he’s hardly the only one to make a big money move.

Lineker has since tweeted again to wish Kanté all the best for the future.

The player is expected to be confirmed as a Chelsea player in the coming days.
