Report: Barcelona & AC Milan Expect Andreas Christensen to Stay at Chelsea Despite Contract Uncertainty

Barcelona and AC Milan believe Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen will sign a new contract at Stamford Bridge despite uncertainty over his future, according to reports.

The 25-year-old could leave the club on a free transfer next summer because his current deal is set to expire at the end of the season. 

Christensen is yet to agree a new deal despite talks taking place over the summer, to which the club believed they had a verbal agreement in place over a new long-term extension.

Tuchel recently handed Christensen a contract ultimatum to 'walk the talk' after changing his demands despite verbally agreeing a new contract.

"We are waiting a long time now for confirmation. It’s on Andreas to act how he acts on the pitch off the pitch and walk the talk. 

"He tells us he loves Chelsea, that he wants to stay and be a big part, because he is a big part of a big club. I think he is the perfect fit, he is not done yet here, his career here is not finished."

His dad Sten, who is also his agent, refused to comment on Tuchel's message to the central defender.

"I do not want to comment on it at this time," he told Danish station BT.
