Barcelona are all set to complete a transfer deal for Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen, as the defender has been unable to agree a new contract with the Blues

Chelsea are in the media for all sorts of reasons over the past few days, as Roman Abramovic has put the club up for sale after 19 years of winning trophies and turning the club into one of the very best in the game

But that has not stopped the speculation about the type of players that will be coming to the club in the summer transfer window, and leaving the club either on free deals or being sold as the club may look to revamp.

Christensen is yet to agree a new deal with us, despite holding talks with the club for months and the defender admits he’s in a ‘difficult situation’ at Stamford Bridge, as he does not get the game time that he has desired.

Speaking about his 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’s hard because all the talks between the club and my guys, I try to keep it away because I want to focus and it’s 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.

‘I just focus on winning, really. It’s a difficult situation.’

And now, According to Spanish radio station COPE, Barcelona’s director of football, Mateu Alemany, has travelled to London in order to finalise a deal for Christensen.

Christensen is a very gifted defender that could become a top-class one, so the news that he is all set to depart the club at the end of the season will come as a massive blow to the squad, but at the end of the day, he is still a player that can be replaced
