Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen has not seen much action in the Premier League since Antonio Conte’s last year, during the 2017-18 season. That factor combined with his contractual situation, where he has only two-and-a-half years left in his deal with the Blues, leaves him primed for exit rumors.
That however is not the reality for the 23-year-old centre-back, who remains happy at Chelsea, according to Danish newspaper BT.
As per BT’s information, relayed on their Transfer Window podcast, Christensen’s absence in recent matches was down to illness rather than Frank Lampard’s preferences. And unless something drastic happens, it is unlikely that the young defender will leave Chelsea this transfer window.
That goes along with recent quotes from Borussia Mönchengladbach sporting director Max Eberl, who was quite vocal in the past about his club’s intentions to bring Christensen back to Germany. Now he realises that they have been priced out of such wishes.
“We don’t need to talk about the quality of Andreas Christensen. I do not know whether [a move] could be implemented.
“I have not spoken to Chelsea. The fact is that Andreas still has two years left on his contract there.
“The transfer [fee] required to sign players from England who do not seem to have a major role is crazy.”
