Chelsea's midfield dynamo N'Golo Kante has won plaudits for his all-action style which seems set to help him land Premier League titles in successive seasons - but he has admitted that he almost never joined Leicester City.
Kante left Caen in the summer of 2015 and signed for the Foxes for £5.6 million, playing a huge role in their incredible run to the title.
One year after joining, he was off again, this time for £32 million to Chelsea who currently sit top with 10 games to play, again with Kante playing a pivotal role in the centre of the park.
But while on international duty with France last week, Kante has allowed that Marseille were also interested in signing him from Caen - and that his initial instinct was to take another step up the Ligue 1 chain before moving abroad.
Speaking to Canal Plus, Kante has also suggested that there are more deserving players than he of the Player of the Year award, including several team-mates at Chelsea.
Among the clubs that most wanted to recruit me were Marseille and Leicester.
I thought I had to go through a stage in France. I remember the generation of [Mamadou] Niang, [Franck] Ribery and [Samir] Nasri and it was a team that I liked, especially in the Champions League.
There are quite a few players in the Premier League who deserve this [Player of the Year] award.
There is [Eden] Hazard, Diego Costa and David Luiz in my team.
