Danish defender Andreas Christensen has been linked to Bayern Munich since December and the Bavarian giants are facing competition from abroad. According to the media, Barcelona are also in the race for Christensen.
Niklas Süle will be leaving the club in the summer and Bayern have been linked with numerous defenders to replace the German international. The race for the Chelsea defender is getting tighter, now that the Catalan club has joined in.
But nobody said that just because it’s a free transfer, it’s going to be easier. Christensen is a free agent in the summer, but his salary demands are not acceptable for Bayern.
Chelsea assume Christensen is heading to Barcelona
According to Sky Sport journalist, Florian Plettenberg, the Chelsea bosses assume that Christensen will be joining Barcelona in the summer. It has also been confirmed by numerous reports in England that Christensen will be leaving on a free and that the battle will be between Barcelona and Bayern.
Update #Christensen: #CFC bosses expect his move to #FCBarcelona in summer. Many teammates also assume this. No one expects a contract extension. The players side conveys that a move to #FCBayern is still possible, but they also talk about and with Barcelona. @SkySportsNews 🇩🇰
