The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are nervous about the impending departure of John Terry at Stamford Bridge this summer…
The defender has been a mainstay at SW6 for years, leaving many in the pub concerned that Conte will struggle to adapt to life without the veteran. Of course, the recruitment of a replacement will be essential, but what if the Blues’ ideal Terry replacement was already at the club?
Chelsea have dozens of top players currently on loan, and our landlord reckons that young Andreas Christensen is the perfect man to fill the boots of John Terry. Rated at £13.6 million by TransferMarkt, could he be the player that Chelsea need?
Currently on-loan in Germany with Borussia Monchengladbach, the Danish defender has proven his worth during a two-year loan spell with the German giants. Stellar both domestically and continentally, Christensen is beyond his years when it comes to quality.
Offering technical brilliance, aerial prowess and comfort on the ball, he would certainly bring the calming atmosphere that has so often been provided by Terry in the past.
What’s more, he would also be an option of no financial risk – given that he has been on the Chelsea books for several years.
Having beaten current Arsenal star Granit Xhaka to Monchengladbach’s Player of the Year award last season, the defender’s quality is undisputable – and whilst Chelsea could look to sell him for a massive profit, they would be far better served by utilising him next season.
