Eden Hazard spoke with Andreas Christensen about Borussia Monchengladbach

Published 9 Comments

Andreas Christensen has confirmed that he spoke with Chelsea star Eden Hazard before leaving the club in favour of a loan move to Bundesliga outfit Borussia Monchengladbach.

As reported by ESPN, Christensen, who featured on three occasions for the Blues last term, has revealed that he asked Hazard whether his younger brother Thorgan was happy at the German outfit. 

Chelsea's forward ultimately told Christensen that his younger brother was enjoying life at Monchengladbach, which has now led the Blues' young defender to the club on a two-year temporary deal.

"I asked Eden Hazard whether his brother Thorgan is happy at Gladbach," Christensen told Bild. "He said yes."

And Christensen has insisted that he's determined to reach the next level while out on loan, before heading back to the Premier League to star for Premier League champions Chelsea.

He continued by saying: "Under Favre, I should reach the next level. He's a top coach and was another reason for my transfer.

"And in contrast to the Premier League they also rely on young players here and let them play earlier. I will gain some maturity with Gladbach for Chelsea -- that's the plan."

Big future

There's no doubt about it, the deal seems a sensible one for all involved. At the end of the day, Christensen will play week in, week out in one of the most competitive divisions in world football, and will only continue to improve. 

At just 19, the Danish defender certainly has it all to do to prove himself, but he certainly looks quite the prospect, and may well slot into the Blues' back-line in the coming years. He may well even prove the long term replacement for John Terry, who is entering the final stages of his wonderful career. 

Hazard the talisman

Hazard, on the other hand, faces another huge campaign in west London. After leading the Blues to title success last season, the Belgian international will be determined to step up once again next season. 

In fact, he will be hoping to get even better, as he goes about proving himself as the standout player in the division. At this stage, he's still some way off the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo and Co., but some are already recognising him as the third best player in world football.
