The future of Andreas Christensen at Chelsea has come into doubt with the talks over a new contract stalled at the moment, according to The Times.
It seems Chelsea have a potentially big problem to solve when it comes to the future of their defence. Christensen is one of the three centre-backs, arguably the first three in the pecking order under Thomas Tuchel, whose contracts expire at the end of the season. Antonio Rudiger’s dilemma about whether to extend his deal has been reported on quite a lot, while Thiago Silva will be close to his 38th birthday next summer.
Chelsea were heavily linked with Sevilla’s Jules Kounde towards the end of the last transfer window, but no deal was reached and it remains to be seen if they go back for the promising French defender.
Both Christensen and Chelsea believed an agreement on a new four-year contract with an option for one more was close, but the talks were brought to an abrupt halt in August and haven’t resumed since.
