Christensen played the first season at Bara
Indisputable title at FC Barcelona, Andreas Christensen could be the subject of an offer from Newcastle next summer. Will Barça be able to retain its central defense in the event of a very big proposal?
FC Barcelona smelled the right shot. Last summer, the Catalan club indeed managed a great deal by attracting Andreas Christensen for free at the end of his contract with Chelsea. In Catalonia, the 26-year-old central defense has become an indisputable starter in Xavi’s eleven.
Strong in duels, intelligent in his movements and very clean in the recovery, the Dane has integrated perfectly into the style of play of his new team. And his performances give ideas to some.
Newcastle target Christensen
According to the Catalan sports daily, Newcastle South bring Christensen back to England. The English club, owned by a Saudi fund with colossal means, is looking for a reinforcement in central defense for next season and is considering making an offer for the Scandinavian in the coming months. Do the Magpies have a chance in the matter?
For now, the native of Lillerød has no desire to leave Catalonia next summer, one after his arrival. He has played 21 matches, including 25 as a starter, and therefore has no reason to leave. For its part, Barça also sees itself continuing its collaboration with an element that meets expectations and under contract until 2026. However, an important fact must be taken into account in this file: the financial situation of the Catalan club.
Barça could hesitate…
Faced with the financial difficulties of FC Barcelona, the Catalan leaders must make important decisions in the months to come. Barça must rebalance its accounts to stay in the nails of financial fair play in La Liga and to be able to recruit next summer. And that will go through the sale of several players. The current leader of the Spanish championship could therefore think twice in the event of a big offer from Newcastle for Christensen …
