The Chelsea fans by the bar are convinced that he could succeed John Terry…
Over the last few months, the Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern have not stopped talking up young Danish defender Andreas Christensen.
Currently, 20-years-old, Christensen has been with Chelsea for the last few years – but the Dane is currently playing for Borussia Monchengladbach as part of a two-year loan move.
Whilst he joined the club with very little fanfare, in the 18 months since his arrival he has shone; and it is clear that he is very quickly becoming a top central defender.
Unsurprisingly then, the Danish central defender is drawing the attention of some of Europe’s biggest clubs – and one is reportedly plotting a £20m move.
As per the Sun on Sunday, Christensen is wanted by Barcelona in a £20m pursuit, as they look to rebuild their defence under Luis Enrique.
Christensen has become a near-constant in the defence for Monchengladbach – and will no doubt demand a starting spot at Chelsea should he return.
The Blues will no doubt want to hold on to the Dane, with a few of the Chelsea fans in the Tavern touting him as the next John Terry – but they could be powerless to resist a move from Barcelona.
With Antonio Conte’s men currently struggling for defensive depth, our landlord is finding it very hard to understand why Christensen is even away from the club in the first place. He thinks that he could definitely do a job in the heart of the Chelsea defence…
