N’Golo Kante is being touted as the best midfielder in the world at the moment, as the current form is seeing him cover every blade of grass in pursuit of the Premier League title. The French star may be turning the heads of the footballing world around at the moment, but he's still turning the wheel of a Mini Cooper to get to training sessions.
The Sun have captured images of the holding midfield ace driving to Chelsea training sessions in the Mini, which can be picked up for as little as £20k.

A £30m summer transfer didn't seem to break N'Golo's routine then, as the ex-Leicester City man owned the same motor back at the King Power Stadium.
With the Foxes triumph, last season came a gift from their Thai owners, who spent nearly £2m to buy 19 BMW i8’s for the squad. Unfortunately, Kante had already signed for Chelsea at that point and missed out on the lavish gift fit for a champion.

In the running and bookies favourite to win PFA player of the year, the player reportedly now on £110k a week simply doesn't seem all that interested in flash cars.
Chelsea stand 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League with thanks to the contributions of Kante and other stellar performers this term. Antonio Conte's men now march towards Stoke on Saturday, hoping to overcome a resilient side to heighten their chances of lifting the title.
