EPL: Chelsea star to join Barcelona as free agent

Chelsea defender, Andreas Christensen is close to agreeing a move to join Barcelona on a free transfer in the summer.

This claim was made by football transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano, in a tweet via his Twitter handle on Saturday.

Christensen’s future at Chelsea is uncertain as the 25-year-old is yet to sign a new contract with the Blues.

His current deal with Chelsea will expire at the end of the season.


“Andreas Christensen has turned down proposals from English clubs to be respectful with Chelsea,” Romano tweeted.

“He’s now really close to join Barcelona as free agent, contract proposal’s better than Bayern one.”

Christensen signed for Chelsea in February, 2012, when Andre Villas-Boas was in charge of the Stamford Bridge club.
