During the transfer ban
Andreas Christensen’s (Photo) situation at Chelsea FC was already described as “difficult to accept.” The Ex-Gladbach defender had repeatedly stressed and now again to “Ekstra Bladet,” that its difficult not getting playing time with Chelsea. The Dane was content enough with his unsatisfactory role with the Blues to not transfer in this winter transfer window. Now, the Blues current situation – not being able to sign any new players for a year – does not make a future transfer any easier for Christensen.
A change of club for the Danish international is once again probably out of the question. What the club itself hasn’t publicly addressed, Christensen now brought to the table: “What we have been told is that Chelsea cannot appeal the case and therefore want to keep all the players.” Christensen is currently considered third string center-back behind David Luiz (31) and Antonio Rüdiger (26). His contract is still valid until 2022.

Chelsea are not allowed to bring in a new transfers for two transfer periods due to improper transfers of underage players. The club will have to limit itself to its own youth players or loan returnees.
Under these circumstances, that the club is not eager to transfer its players away is obvious, however still, transfer rumors are circulating. For example, speculation about a transfer from star attacker Eden Hazard (28) to Real Madrid is steadily increasing. N’Golo Kanté (27) has also received interest from Real, who under new coach Zinédine Zidane, are said to want to invest in the player. The players, meanwhile, are limited to highlighting their current job at Chelsea – and no longer comment on transfer rumors.
Callum Hudson-Odoi, who was fiercely courted by Bayern Munich and is now also said to be wanted by Borussia Dortmund, is also considered a transfer candidate. In the defense, meanwhile, there is also a question from Christensen’s competitor Luiz, whose contract expires in the summer. For Christensen, a departure would not necessarily guarantee more playing time, considering that the young Welch talent Ethan Ampadu (18) is also pushing for time.
