Andreas Christensen has admitted that he now wants to stay at Chelsea this coming summer transfer window, despite his limited game time under Maurizio Sarri.
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 as the Italian didn’t look to change much during the summer transfer window after he arrived.
However, His performances have been limited this season under the guidance of the Italian, as the former Napoli 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.
That led to speculation that Christensen wanted to leave the Blues during the January transfer window, with the likes of Manchester United, Barcelona and Juventus all reportedly keen to acquire the 22-year-olds signature, but Chelsea opted not to sell, as they needed Christensen to provide cover until the end of the season.
And now Christensen – who has three years remaining on his contract – has said that he definitely wants to stay at Chelsea during the summer transfer window.
He told Sky Sports: “It’s always difficult when I speak in Danish and it’s translated.
“I have not had a conversation with the club and they have not told me I am staying. I said I would like to stay. There has been no conversation but I can say what I want to happen and that is definitely staying.
“I still have a long contract and I am still proud to be a Chelsea player. It has been six years, almost seven and for me it has not changed.
“I see myself as a Chelsea player and hopefully I will keep being that.”
