Premier League giants Chelsea are beset with a new set of challenges as they approach the summer and the resulting 2022-23 season as key center-back Andreas Christensen is all but set to join legendary side Barcelona in a free transfer.
Romano provided further details surrounding the deal that looks set to be concluded, making mention that the relevant parties have been in negotiations since January while German giants Bayern Munich also expressed considerable interest in the Dane on the back of Niklas Süle agreeing to a free move to rivals Borussia Dortmund when his contract expires at the end of the current campaign.
Chelsea to move forward despite Christensen loss
No one can say that Chelsea has not been fully aware of the potential situation at hand when it comes to the state of the defense moving forward, with Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rüdiger both subject to speculation surrounding their futures.
With Christensen now looking set to depart, the Blues have a decision to make in how they are meant to replace the Danish international.
Pushing hard for French international Jules Koundé seems like the likely choice for the Stamford Bridge outfit given the rampant links that have persisted between club and player over the last year.
Football.London recently postulated other possible replacements in the summer, which included Wesley Fofana, Matthjis de Ligt, Alessandro Bastoni, and Pau Torres.
Regardless of which direction Chelsea goes moving forward, rest assured that a club of their stature and financial resources will certainly look to upgrade on him as best possible.
