Impressive Centre-Back To Be Rewarded With Fresh Chelsea Deal
Chelsea are reportedly planning to offer defender Andreas Christensen a new deal at Stamford Bridge as a reward for his great form since the arrival of new manager Thomas Tuchel…….Impressive Centre-Back To Be Rewarded With Fresh Chelsea Deal
The 24-year-old star rarely featured under then-manager Frank Lampard at the start of the season but has been a regular presence at the heart of Chelsea’s defence since the beginning of February, and Andreas’ return has coincided with a plethora of clean sheets.
Thomas is clearly a huge admirer of Andreas, and according to The Telegraph, Chelsea now want to tie him down to a long-term deal as the rest of Europe’s giants begin to circle.
The Danish star is decreasing in value with each passing month and Chelsea would risk losing him for cheap this summer, with his current contract set to expire at the end of the 2021/22 term.
Their desperation to retain Andreas’ services will only be intensified by his presence at the rearranged UEFA Euro 2020 tournament this summer, as he’ll be able to demonstrate his abilities on the pitch with his country.
He has benefitted from Thiago Silva’s recent injury woes and has surprised everyone with his commanding and solid displays.
Christensen has played in five of Chelsea’s last six games, and they have kept four clean sheets in those outings.
The only goal Chelsea have conceded during his time on the field was an own goal by the German star Antonio Rudiger, and there can be no questions that Chelsea are a much stronger unit with Andreas at the heart of the backline.
