Zidane wants to sign for Chelsea as Christensen announces he wants to stay at Stamford Bridge
Manchester United target Zinedine Zidane wants the Chelsea job – if they match his terms and ambition.
Maurizio Sarri started life at Stamford Bridge in fine fashion and won his opening twelve matches as boss, but over the past few months there have been some poor results, talk of player unrest and Sarri hitting out at Roman Abramovic a few times.[the_ad id=”164″]
And that has led to a lot of speculation that Sarri could be sacked before the end of the season, especially after Abramovic saw his expensive side get thrashed 6-0 last weekend to Premier League Champions Manchester City, their worst defeat in the Premier League era.
And according to recent reports, there is growing support in the hierarchy for ex-Real Madrid head coach Zidane to come to Stamford Bridge to help turn the Blues back into a European superpower.
Now, according to the Sky Sports news website, Zidane will take the job at Stamford Bridge if they give him a £200 million transfer kitty and promise to keep hold of star man Eden hazard.
Zidane left Madrid at the end of last season after guiding the club to their third-successive Champions League title and is heavily tipped to be he next United boss, should Ole Gunnar Solskjaer fall apart in the final few months of the season.
Meanwhile, Andreas Christensen has admitted he is now happy at the club after being given reassurances.
The Denmark international was a regular in Antonio Conte’s final campaign in charge at Stamford Bridge, and was seemingly set to be the clubs main man at the back under news boss Maurizio Sarri this season.[the_ad id=”164″]
However, He has made just 15 appearances in all competitions under Sarri this season, as the Italian boss prefers Antonio Rudiger and David Luiz as his back two, despite many in the media criticising many of the duo’s performances this season.
Now he has no intention of leaving after a meeting with senior management.
‘Obviously I had a lot of doubts,’ Christensen told Bold.dk.
‘But once the club assured me I am needed, it really wasn’t that hard for me to accept. ‘I’ve been in the club for many years, and I still love being here.
‘It’s solely because of the playing time that the transfer consideration started.
‘But I’m looking forward, and I’ve come to terms with the situation.’
