Andreas opens up and announces ‘his love for Chelsea’ and is keen to sign long contract
Andreas Christensen has declared his “love” for Chelsea, with the defender keen for a longer stay at Stamford Bridge.
There has been alot of speculation about the possible signings that Frank Lampard will continue to make during the summer transfer window, with reports that a new central defender and left-back may be required by the boss.
That would mean that the likes of Christensen, Fikayo Tomori and Antonio Rudiger would all have to fight for a spot in the side, and with defenders usually playing 90 per cent of the games, a new central defender could hinder their development under Lampard.
However, amid talk that he is in talks with the club about a new contract, Christensen has declared his “love” for us, with the defender keen for a longer stay at Stamford Bridge.
“I’ve never looked anywhere else,” Christensen, who has two years left on his contract, told Sky Sports
“I’ve never doubted my situation. I’ve always had my eyes at Chelsea.
“I’ve had my contract and I’ve always expected to finish that and I’ve always dreamed of even more than that. Nothing has changed.
“Obviously it was a different situation last season but I still love being here, that’s the short answer.”
Andreas is a brilliantly gifted young man, but another top-class defender is needed to play alongside him at the back, as the result against West Ham in midweek proved, that having a great attack will not win games in the Premier League every week.[the_ad id=”164″]
