Many clubs are understood to have made moves to sign the young talent for the future, but the Blues acted faster.

Meanwhile, Barcelona is reportedly close to completing Andreas Christensen’s deal.

The Catalans are said to have made a good offer for the Danish player and he could be with the club next summer.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona has accelerated their interest in Christensen ahead of his contract expiring during the summer transfer window.

Naija News understands that Christensen alongside AC Milan’s Franck Kessie is top of Barcelona’s wish list ahead of next summer.

It could be recalled that the centre-back joined Chelsea from Brondby in 2012.

A move to Barca will see him end his 10-year stay at Stamford Bridge.

Christensen has made at least over 150 appearances for Chelsea, helping the Blues win multiple trophies, including last season’s Champions League.

Speaking about his Chelsea contract situation last week, Christensen said: “Things can still be done. Being part of a winning team is all that I want to be as a football player.

“It is hard because of all the talks between the club and my guys, I try to keep it away because I want to focus and it has not changed for me.

“I go on the pitch every day not really thinking about it. I leave that to the club and my guys, and I can focus on playing football.”
