- Match Analysis
Ever since David Luiz had a fall out with Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, Christensen has stepped up to the occasion. His performance has not gone unnoticed as La Liga giants are now interested in the player.
Barcelona are preparing for a life without Javier Mascherano as he set to move to China this month. As a result, Valverde wants a backup and would like to sign Christensen from Chelsea.
The 21-year old has not failed to impress his manager and has now become a regular starter for his club. He still has 2.5 years of contract left in his deal. However, it is believed that Chelsea are working on giving him a new deal.
Conte has labelled Christensen as a “future captain” and would not want to see him leave so soon. He just got back from his 2-year loan deal at Borussia Monchengladbach and is already a fan favourite.
Barcelona are going to find it very difficult in their pursuit of Christensen as Conte has no plans of letting him go. The Danish international has become a regular starter for Conte. Barcelona should look elsewhere for a defender.
