Here is the N'Golo Kanté hype again.

After a disappointing Euro 2021 individually and collectively - it must be said that the Chelsea midfielder had something to be blunted - we had almost forgotten that the French international had achieved a huge season in club, all punctuated by a victory in Champions League.

And here he is, therefore, named among the last three contenders for the title of European player of the year.

The other two are his teammate Jorginho and Kevin De Bruyne.

Jorginho rounded off his trophy season with a Euro title with Italy, while Belgian De Bruyne had a great season with Manchester City, being crowned champion of England and going to the C1 final.

One of these three players, appointed by a panel of coaches and journalists, will be awarded on August 26 on the sidelines of the Champions League draw ceremony in Istanbul (Turkey), and will succeed Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich)

The award for the best player will go to a Blaugrana

The award for the best UEFA player of the year will be presented to a Barcelona winner of the Champions League: Jennifer Hermoso, Lieke Martens and Alexia Putellas are all nominated for this distinction.
