Gary Lineker makes N’Golo Kante comment after Newcastle takeover

Former Leicester city  legend Gary Lineker has revealed himself to be a big admirer of Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante.

Twitter account, Out of Context Football created a Newcastle FIFA line-up, including all the world-class players in a supposed Champions League match.

Newcastle now boast the wealthiest owners in world football following a takeover from Saudi-led group, Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF).

Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, Paris Saint-Germain’s Lionel Messi, Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne, PSG’s Neymar, Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland, PSG’s Kylian Mbappe, Spurs’ Son Heung-min, Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema, Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski and Chelsea’s Kante.

In the video, former Foxes’ midfielder Kante was amusingly placed in goal rather than his usual position in the centre of the pitch.

Lineker praised the Frenchman’s abilities on Twitter: “With Kante you could probably get away with this starting lineup.”

Worth an astonishing £320 billion, the Magpies’ new owners are set to spend big in the next few transfer windows.

With that in mind, the latest player betting odds that Newcastle could sign next summer have been revealed…
