The other day, quotes from the talkative sporting director of Borussia Mönchengladbach, Max Eberl, made the rounds, in which he conceded defeat over his quest to acquire Chelsea loanee Andreas Christensen on a permanent basis.  He also spoke of Christensen's affinity towards Chelsea and how the youngster wants to return to his parent club if we can in fact offer him a chance at the first-team.

He did hint at "other models" that Gladbach might consider when it comes to Christensen's future.  Unsurprisingly, these other models just involve more loans.

"I can't imagine that Chelsea would sell him to us, but maybe we can loan him for another one or two years? If he was with us for three to four whole years, that would be a great story."

"Our pledge is that Andreas feels comfortable with us and always reaches his goals. If Chelsea cannot offer him that, we might have a chance to have him with us even longer."

In lieu of rehashing the same thing that we'd written many times before, let's see how @chelseayouth reacted to these quotes.

So say we all.
