Andreas Christensen

Cesc Fabregas just posted a photo of Chelsea squad leaving for China on his Instagram account.

Besides the Spanish midfielder in the picture we recognize Courtois, Willian, Caballero, Batshuayi, Pedro, Davis Luiz, Marcos Alonso, Kenedy, Lewis Baker,  Remy, Christensen, Scott, Kalas, Pasalic, Clarke-Salter, Boga, Musonda.

As we said today new signings Tiemoué Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger didn’t travel as they are recovering from minor injuries, Eden Hazard stayed in London to have a better recovery for his fractured ankle injury, Nemanja Matic didn’t travel since he can sign for another team in the next days ( Man United?) and Diego Costa is still on his break in Brazil since he is out of the squad and ready for a return to Atletico Madrid.

The team will do a stop-over in Dubai before continuing their journey to Bejing, where they will play against Arsenal next Saturday.

Chelsea will then travel to Singapore where they will face Bayern Munich ( 25 July) and Inter ( 29 July) in the last two friendly games of this pre-season.

According to Sky Sport Italia Inter are keen to sign Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen.

The Nerazzurri are looking for a centre-back and after signing Milan Skriniar from Sampdoria ( even if the deal is not official yet) they are looking for another young player to revamp their defense.

Rumours claim Inter directors enquired with Chelsea about Christensen situation: the 21-year-old impressed in his two years long loan spell at Borussia Monchengladbach and he is now set to join the Blues first team squad for the pre-season.

Should he fail to gain Antonio Conte’s trust he will be on the market again but it’s not clear yet if Chelsea are keen for a loan or a permanent move for the Danish talent.

Andreas Christensen‘s two-year-loan-spell at Borussia Monchengladbach is ending today.

The Danish defender impressed in these two years at the German side, where he improved a lot as a player.

Now he is set to join Chelsea first team squad for pre-season, but since Christensen is not sure about his future, he hinted to a return to Gladbach in his farewell message to the club on his social network account:

“The break is now almost over, and my time with @borussia has officially come to an end (for now anyway). 

“I wanna thank every one at the club for making my time there unforgettable, thank you to the fans for suporting the team trough thick and thin and a special thank you to my teammates for pushing me everyday. 

“It’s been an honor playing with you

Andreas Christensen confirmed he will join Chelsea after his positive two-year-loan-spell at Borussia Monchengladbach but he also revealed that Blues boss Antonio Conte hasn’t got in touch with him yet.

“I will join up with Chelsea on July 7th. I haven’t talked to Conte yet,” the Danish defender told the Daily Express.

“I have talked to the sporting director and all those responsible for getting the players set up with a flat and what else belongs to them.

“The sports director says the plan is that I meet like all the others and go through the pre-season.”

In the last few days rumours has circulated that Andreas Christensen can be used by Chelsea in a deal with Southampton to help the Blues sign Virgil Van Dijk.

However, Christensen’s father Sten said that his son, after his impressive performances with Borussia Monchengladbach, wants to play regular football also next season. And he wants to do this at Stamford Bridge.

Andreas will not be used in a barter and play for Southampton. There are no ways for this to happen,” – Sten told Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet. -“Andreas should not sit on the bench. He has played solidly for two seasons. Therefore, it is also planned for the future that he will play every week.”

Borussia Monchengladbach sporting director Max Eberl had his own say about loanee Andreas Christensen, who is reportedly set to head back to Chelsea at the end of current season.

“He must go back to Chelsea FC, – Eberl said speaking at press conference – Dahoud [who will join Borussia Dortmund in summer] and Christensen are the two players that we have to replace in the summer”. 

“There are no others and we don’t want any others to leave.”

It is understood also Barcelona and Bayern Munich are tracking the Danish international, who has made 74 appearances for Gladbach over two seasons so far. With Chelsea still interested in Southampton’s van Dijk and Napoli star Koulibaly, Christensen could represent a low-cost solution.

Antonio Conte wants to bring back Andreas Christensen to Chelsea: the Danish defender has been loaned to Borussia Monchengladbach in a two-year-deal and he’s impressing in the Bundesliga side.

The German club, anyway, are not really keen to let him return to Stamford Bridge and would like to sign him with a permanent move.

Christensen is still not sure what his future will be, but he claimed that he would like to participate to U21 European Championship:

“I really want to play the finals, but it depends on what happens at club level.

“I have not had a holiday in a really long time. If I’m going back to England I would like to impress my new coach in preseason, so it will not do that I am completely smashed and miss the first week of a training camp.”

The U21 Euros will played in Poland from 16 to 30 June and Denmark are included in a group along with Italy, Germany and Czech Republic.

Chelsea loanee Andreas Christensen was one of Borussia Mönchengladbach heroes in Europa League Round of 32 tonight.

The German side was travelling to Italy after losing 1-0 against Fiorentina at home last week and set an incredible comeback at Franchi Stadium: Borussia was 2-0 down at 29′ but a penalty scored by Lars Stindl right before half-time gave them hope to level the tie.

The same Stindl scored a brace in the beginning of the second half, between 47′ and 55′: ‘Gladbach was already qualified with a 2-3 for the away goals rule, but Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen- that has been on loan to the Bundesliga side for two years- scored the 2-4 definitive goal at 60′, giving his team the tranquillity they need to end the match, becoming one of the two heroes of this special night.

Borussia will know their rivals for the competition’s last 16 tomorrow after the UEFA draw.
