Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante has filed a lawsuit against his former image agent, citing fraud and breach of trust.
According to the Paris prosecutor's office, Kante's suit against Nouari Khiari also includes "attempted fraud" and "illegal exercise of the profession of sports agent."
After Kante was introduced to Khiari and their relationship started in 2016, it lasted for just one year and the France international accepted to pay €150,000 for Khiari to severe their professional ties.
However, lequipe reports that Kante claims that his former associate kept all the copies of their deal and later pressured him to get more money.
Kante also claimed in the report that the agent tried to convince him to join Real Madrid in the summer of 2018.
"I was too kind," Kante told L'Equipe. "I wanted to believe in this person's honesty and sincerity. But he was only driven by the financial aspects."
