Chelsea defender has strangely found himself on Real Madrid’s transfer list.
After losing the FA Cup Final against Arsenal, Chelsea and their coach Frank Lampard must now look to restructure their squad in the next transfer window.
Despite losing the Cup, Lampard will be very proud of his squad after finishing 4th in the Premier League campaign this year despite having multiple issues prior to his arrival. The loss of Eden Hazard was another massive blow the club have seemingly dealt with awaiting to showcase their growth in the next season.
Their latest signing of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner from Ajax and RB Leipzig respectively, shows that the Blues are prepared to challenge both, current winners Liverpool and strong contenders Manchester City for the English title.
Many reports also claim the arrival of superstar midfielder, Kai Havertz, from Bayer Leverkusen is soon to be confirmed. While many are arriving, many existing players will also be departing ahead of the next season with one of the main players to leave being N’Golo Kante with Inter Milan being the possible destination. Report claims that another first-team regular to be sold this season is defender Andreas Christensen.
After not being prioritized by Lampard, Christensen desires a move away from the London side as Fikayo Tomori, Kurt Zouma. and Antonio Rudiger, have all been prioritized over the Danish international. The 24-year-old has featured for 27 fixtures across all competition but that hasn’t convinced him that his coach has plans for him in the future.
He desires regular minutes and has not found it under the new management. Christensen has now offered himself to Spanish champions, Real Madrid, who are currently in the market for a new defender. Florentino Perez could perhaps look to secure the want-away star for a reported figure of 40 million euros.
It remains to be seen, however, whether the Spanish side will make any official bids while it is also uncertain if Lampard has decided to exclude the Danish international from his future plans.
