Transfer speculation surrounding the France international has intensified over the last couple of days.
And that's seen Kante's Next Club odds take a dramatic twist.
Inter Milan and Real were thought to be ahead in the battle to sign the 29-year-old with Antonio Conte determined to be reunited with him at the San Siro.
But Manchester United have now rocketed into favouritism.
Betfair are offering odds of 5/2* on United being Kante's next club and those odds are likely to shrink as the transfer window draws ever closer.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were heavily linked with a bid for two two-time Premier League winner last summer.
Kante played in a double pivot alongside Paul Pogba for the French national team as they lifted the 2018 World Cup and could help United lift their first domestic league title since the 2012-13 season.

However, Real Madrid's shadow looms large.
The La Liga champions are keeping close tabs on the situation as they look to replenish their ranks after releasing Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez, Achraf Hakimi and Sergio Reguilon.
Manager Zidane is a known admirer of his compatriot and Real, with all their financial muscle, are a sizeable 4/1 to pip United to Kante.
A £10 bet with Betfair on that happening will return £50!
Manchester City are third favourites at 6/1, while Barcelona and Paris Saint–Germain can be backed at 7/1.
