Chelsea’s £80,000-a-week defender Andreas Christensen has claimed that he’s had no talks over a new contract yet – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter have responded strongly begging for him to receive a new deal.
Christensen, 25, is someone that has come through the Blues academy ranks, and has been with the club since 2012.
The ball-playing centre-back has made 123 senior appearances for the club, with the appointment of manager Thomas Tuchel in January really breathing new life into him on the pitch.
He’s looked at his very best in the past few months playing in a back three system, and has always been highly rated.
The Telegraph reported in March that Chelsea were planning to offer Christensen a new deal, with his current contract due to expire in 2022.
However, the Denmark international has shared that he’s yet to have any discussions about his future.
“There have not been any talks [on a contract extension] yet, but like I said, I’m in this for the long run and I always have been. I feel like this is my second home. Denmark will always be my home, but Chelsea will always be my place,” Christensen said, as quoted by the club’s official website.
Despite the fact no new deal is on the table yet, Christensen has made it crystal clear he loves Chelsea and sees his future in London.
A selection of Blues fans on social media are convinced that he should be kept at Stamford Bridge, especially due to the fact he’s been really impressive under Tuchel.
As well as the Danish centre-back, German boss Tuchel has helped defender Antonio Rudiger regain his very best form too.
