Published Add your comment

Chelsea might well have big plans for young Danish defender Andreas Christensen but paramount amongst any decisions made on his future is fending off interest from Borussia Monchengladbach.

The Bundesliga side are, as reported by Bild, keen to make their loan move for Christensen permanent. It’s said they’ll pay as much as €15million for his services - around £12m - in an effort to secure his future.

Bid to come?

Utilising Christensen’s obvious potential has been rumoured as an objective for the club moving forward, though any bid from Monchengladbach could change that.

Fans will remember that this is the same side that took Thorgan Hazard from west London last summer to the tune of €8m, so it’s safe to assume they’re serious enough to put cash behind their ambitions.

Of all Chelsea’s on-loan prospects - there are plenty of them dotted around Europe at the moment - Christensen has garnered perhaps the most attention.

The 19-year-old is steadily making a name for himself as a stout centre-half; coincidentally what the Blues will be on the lookout for if and when Terry does depart.
