Barcelona and Bayern Munich are both strongly interested in signing Andreas Christensen on a free transfer when his contract with Chelsea expires at the end of the season, according to Fabrizio Romano.
The Denmark international has been an important part of Thomas Tuchel’s team throughout, starting 11 Premier League matches this term. However, he missed the potential season decider against Manchester City on Saturday after testing positive for COVID-19.
Chelsea have placed an offer of a new deal on the table for the 25-year-old to consider, but he hasn’t signed it yet and appears reluctant to do so. The club are in a similar situation with Antonio Rudiger and captain Cesar Azpilicueta.
Christensen joined Chelsea’s youth setup from that of Brondby at the Under-18 level. He was promoted to the first team squad in 2015 but was immediately shipped out on a two-year loan to Borussia Monchengladbach. Since returning to Stamford Bridge, he’s made a total of 148 appearances in all competitions so far.
