Chelsea’s rise back to the top of English football was largely down to the solidity their three-man defence based formation provides. However, the fact that John Terry will be leaving the club at the end of the season means there is a vacancy for a new centre-back that has opened up.
Many fans want Andreas Christensen to be come in to the first team next season. The Danish defender was a key part of Chelsea’s youth side before impressing on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach.
However, Blues fans were less than pleased when he was linked with a move to Southampton in exchange for Virgil van Dijk.
Those worried about the prospect of the rumours becoming reality can rest assured that won’t happen. This is because Sten Christensen, the father of Andreas, comprehensively shot down any such rumours, meaning there is still hope to be had about seeing the young defender in Chelsea blue next season.
Check out the quote in question here:
Andreas will not be used in a barter and play for Southampton. There are no ways for this to happen.
Andreas should not sit on the bench. He has played solidly for two seasons. Therefore, it is also planned for the future that he will play every week.
