Football News

When Kurt Zouma was confirmed to have suffered a season-ending knee injury against Manchester United on Sunday, many presumed that John Terry would be offered a new deal at the club.

That is not the case.

According to the Telegraph, Zouma’s injury hasn’t impacted Chelsea’s decision to let Terry leave at the end of the season and the club will attempt to recall young centre-back Andreas Christensen in the summer.

Christensen, 19, is on loan at German club Borussia Monchengladbach until the end of next season but, having impressed in his first campaign, Chelsea want to bring him back to Stamford Bridge prematurely.

It would mean Chelsea’s centre-back options for next season will include Christensen and Matt Miazga, who have one Premier League appearance between them.

Terry revealed after Chelsea’s FA Cup win against MK Dons last month that the Blues were yet to offer him a new contract.

Club legend

His public comments have been met with strong protests by Chelsea fans, eager to see their beloved captain continue his stay at the club, but didn’t sit well with the Blues hierarchy.

Christensen joined Chelsea in 2012 and made his debut in a 2-1 League Cup win against Shrewsbury two years ago. The defender is known for his composure on the ball and has made 25 appearances for Monchengladbach.

Harming Christensen's development

He’s also got an eye for goal, scoring a brace against Werder Bremen last Friday.

But, despite the potential, Christensen isn’t the answer just yet and Chelsea could even harm his development by bringing him back in the summer.
