Barcelona eyeing move for Chelsea wonderkid Andreas Christensen

Published Add your comment

Spanish giants Barcelona are closely monitoring Chelsea youngster Andreas Christensen, currently at Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga, according to the Daily Mail.

The Blues wonderkid sealed a two-year-old loan move to Germany last year after being promoted to the senior squad at Stamford Bridge by Jose Mourinho in 2014.


Barcelona are in pursuit of a new centre-half and rate the young defender highly after promising reports from scouts sent to monitor him in recent weeks.

Christensen has been a regular starter in Bundesliga as well as in Europe, featuring in 30 games for the club this season.

Barcelona have previously signed goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen from the Germans and could return as early as the summer to complete the deal for the talented prodigy.

Though the Monchengladbach-based club could be eyeing a permanent move beyond his loan spell, Chelsea are reluctant to let him leave as they consider Christensen part of their future plans.


The centre-back has been praised for his versatility on the pitch, as he is equally efficient at the heart of the defence, right back and as a defensive midfielder.

The La Liga champions are aiming to strengthen the backline at Camp Nou next season and at present have Gerard Pique and Javier Mascherano at their disposal.


Meanwhile, Thomas Vermaelen and academy graduate Marc Bartra haven't featured too regularly in Luis Enrique’s plans and could move elsewhere to seek more first-team action.

Christensen made his international debut playing for Denmark against Montenegro in June 2015 but has only made one further appearance to date.

The Danish international is certainly a promising prospect for years to come but whether it will be for the Premier League outfit or the Catalan side remains to be seen.
