Chelsea have reportedly agreed a new deal with 25 year old centre-half, Andreas Christensen. Though, the deal has not been finalized yet.
The Telegraph are reporting that the details of the deal will be finalized and announced soon.
This comes as a major boost for Chelsea who have been sweating over agreeing deals for some of their best players.
Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger, Thiago Silva amongst others are among players who are currently on the last year of their contracts.
Talks are currently going on for Toni Rudiger and the defender has reportedly rejected a 140k per week offer. Hence, the news about Christensen is massive amongst the Chelsea fan base and the club as a whole.
Andreas Christensen has been one of the most improved players for Chelsea since Tuchel took over in January as he’s impressed with numerous world class performances for club and country.
The Danish Maldini as he’s fondly called by fans has gradually eased veteran defender Thiago Silva out of the Chelsea starting lineup and has been consistently making a case for himself to be one of the first names on Tuchel’s team list.
Andreas Christensen playing at the level he is at the age of 25 shows a lot of promise and potentials as the Dane has a lot of years ahead as a centre-back. And with the level of high level footballing experience he’s been able to acquire at such age, this new contract is certainly a big win for Chelsea.
