N'GOLO KANTE has finally opted to treat himself to a new car – rocking up to Chelsea training in a fresh Mercedes.

The French midfielder is often considered one of the happiest and most humble footballers in the world.

And a large part of that was down to the fact he kept hold of the Mini Cooper he bought when he arrived at Leicester in 2015.

There were reports he actually started off running from where he was staying to the Foxes training ground before being told he needed to drive.

So he went for a modest Mini for around £20,000 and clearly fell in love with the British classic.

The original one he picked up has been shipped back to France so he can drive it when he goes home while he bought an identical model after signing for Chelsea in 2016.

Even after a minor crash with a lorry on the King's Road in Chelsea, he carried on with the Mini, even turning up to Cobham with a dented front wheel arch.

But it appears lockdown has given Kante time to decide upon a well-earned upgrade.

He has, after all, won the World Cup, two Premier Leagues, the FA Cup, the Europa League and in 2017 was named player of the year by the Premier League, PFA and FWA.

On top of that, he penned a new contract in November 2018 worth a staggering £290,000 per week.

And it is not just a new car that Kante is sporting… after he decided to grow his hair during his time indoors.

Despite having shaven head since signing for Leicester, he clearly ditched the clippers for a few weeks and let his locks loose.

Unsurprisingly, Chelsea fans were absolutely loving it.

One said: "Kante having hair is one of the many crazy things to come out of these times…"

Another, slightly more excited supporter, added: "KANTE HAS HAIR!!! I REPEAT KANTE HAS HAIR."

And one claimed: "The world is absolutely not ready for Kante with hair."

Kante was not the only Blues star arriving at Cobham in style, though.

Olivier Giroud hit back at Karim Benzema's "go kart" comments by driving into the training ground in a slick black convertible Ferrari.

Chelsea returned to training on Tuesday, working in groups no bigger than five and following social distancing guidelines, as they begin to prepare for the Premier League restart, pencilled in for June.
