Andreas Christensen’s contracts runs down by the year 2022. The 25-year old centre back has made it known to Chelsea that he wishes to stay beyond that. He’s at his best form ever since he joined the Blues under Thomas Tuchel and has nailed down a role in his line-ups.

The Danish hopes his recent performances are enough to convince the Stamford Bridge side for a contract renewal. Christensen found it hard under different previous managers. He looks the most settled under Tuchel who’s praised him a lot recently.

Christensen was loaned to German side Borussia M’gladbach where he played for them for two seasons. He made about 82 appearances for them, scoring 7 goals as well. This impressed Chelsea and they recalled him out of their loan army to be a part of the first team squad under the highely prolific Italian manager Antonio Conte who won the Premier League title in his first season in charge.

He joined the premier league giants when was just 15-year old from Brondby. The Blues secured the signature of the Danish centre-half ahead of Premier League rivals Arsenal and Manchester City and German giants Bayern Munich.

Since then he’s made 120 appearances for Chelsea and recently featured against La liga side Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League. The Dane put in an incredible performance.

Christensen on Real Madrid tie

I think the first 25 minutes, half-an-hour we started fairly well and got into some good situations.We didn’t take our chances and then they scored. They were dangerous on set-pieces too, so that’s something for us to focus on.

But we’re all feeling comfortable, not just the defenders but I think the whole team and we’re very comfortable with the way we are playing.

He also conveyed that the team was in high spirits and that the fact that it is difficult for other teams to score against them motivates him and the squad more and they try to keep the momentum high.
