According to Fabrizio Romano, the Denmark international is unwilling to consider proposals made by other Premier League sides out of respect to the Stamford Bridge club.

Andreas Christensen in Talks With Barcelona and Bayern Munich Despite Staying at Chelsea in January

Premier League Move Not an Option For the Defender

If Christensen is to leave Chelsea in the summer, it appears increasingly likely that he will move to a club overseas. The 25-year-old has a strong affinity with the Blues, having progressed through the youth development ranks at Stamford Bridge.

La Liga giants Barcelona and German champions Bayern Munich are both known admirers of the player, and have been in talks with his representatives since the January transfer window.

Christensen has played a significant role under Thomas Tuchel this season, making 26 appearances in all competitions. However, the central defender has also had to contend with the likes of veteran Brazil international Thiago Silva and Germany’s Antonio Rudiger taking most of the plaudits for Chelsea’s impressive defensive record.

Christensen is able to negotiate freely with the likes of Barcelona and Bayern Munich because he will be out of contract at the end of the season.

Barcelona Also in Talks With César Azpilicueta

In addition to their interest in Christensen, Barcelona would like to bring César Azpilicueta to the Camp Nou this summer. The Catalan club have approached the 32-year-old over a deal, but the Spaniard has also yet to decide his future.

Chelsea are thought to be happy to allow Azpilicueta to decide his next move on his own terms, with the defender now into his tenth season with the club.

Remarkably, the Blues’ recent Club World Cup triumph means Azpilicueta has won seven different domestic and European trophies with the club since his 2012 arrival from Marseille.
