Though Chelsea’s defence has recently found some of the solidity that seemed to desert them for so long recently, the Blues in the Transfer Tavern are still reasonably nervous.
Antonio Conte’s switch to a 3-4-3 formation looks to have eradicated some of the frailty that defined the early part of his tenure in charge, though the nature of their defending in the past suggests at more deep-rooted problems.
So, comments emanating out of Germany suggesting the west London giants have NO plans to sell Andreas Christensen have come as welcome news for the Stamford faithful propping up the bar.
Yet to truly feature for the Premier League side, his prolonged stint away from the Bridge has been a confusing one considering the state of their defence.
Still, Borussia’s sporting director Max Erbel has revealed Chelsea have little interest in selling the classy defender to a domestic or international rival.
‘He’s a top player. Chelsea are taking care of those players they’ve loaned out very well’, he told Sky Deutschland (via the Daily Mail.)
‘He’ll be a world-class player. Chelsea are not going to sell such a player to Barcelona or Bayern.’
How important will Christensen be to Chelsea in the future? Let us know below…
