There is a good news coming from the chelsea camp as report from reliable transfer expert confirms defender is set to sign a new contract.
That’s great news for Chelsea and Blues fans, especially and the player is Andreas Christensen Fabrizio Romano claims that Chelsea ‘have an agreement in place’ with Christensen to extend his contract and that it is just a matter of time to sign the paperwork and fix the clauses, as he reported early this morning.
Tuchel’s arrival saw Christensen get onto the pitch a lot more than under previous regimes. He was the de facto first-choice centerback replacement for whenever one of Antonio Rudiger, Thiago Silva or Cesar Azpilicueta got injured. Christensen continually stepped in—most notably in the Champions League final—and put on defensive clinics that look to have finally restored his confidence.
The Dane has now taken that form and continued it with his country as he prepares for contract talks with his club. The Blues have no choice but to re-sign Christensen though as he has made himself Tuchel’s most important centerback going forward.
The fact that both Tuchel and Conte—the most successful Chelsea managers in recent years—trusted the Dane at the back of their rock solid defenses should speak volumes about the talent he possesses. To that point, few have ever questioned the centerback’s abilities, it’s been about mentality all along. Nothing cures low confidence quite like winning the biggest prize in club football.
Chelsea have Antonio Rudiger, Thiago Silva, Cesar Azpilicueta, and Andreas Christensen all in the last year of their contracts and free to agree a pre-contract with a new club in January if they have not signed a new deal by then.
But now it seems one of Chelsea’s contract situations this summer is now sorted out, albeit not officially.
