Good News: Chelsea player has reach agreement to extend contract
Andreas Christensen has reportedly agreed a new deal to stay at Chelsea which will see him nearly double his wages.
The Blues centre-back is out of contract at Stamford Bridge at the end of the season and but confirmed last month he was in talks to extend that deal.
The Sun claimed last month Christensen was close to signing a deal worth £120,000 per week
after he was initially offered lower wages than the current £78,000 he currently takes home each week.
But now The Guardian journalist Fabrizio Romano claims it is a matter of time until the paperwork is signed
However, the deal will be extended until 25-year-old, once final clauses in the deal are agreed.
He added that two unnamed clubs showed interest in Christensen in recent weeks
But insisted there is no chance of talks taking place with interested parties due to his imminent new contract
Which The Sun claim will see him earn £140,000 a week.
The Denmark international has become a first-team regular under Thomas Tuchel, playing the 90 minutes
in five of the Blues’ seven top-flight matches this season as well as figuring heavily in their run to Champions League glory last term.
He also made 27 appearances last season, fighting his way back into Tuchel’s plans
And resulting in Kurt Zouma being the defender who was sacrificed in the summer following his move to West Ham.
When asked on his future earlier this month, Christensen told TV3 Sport: ‘It’s hard to say how things will end up. There is a lot of talk.
‘I will not say too much, but I think it looks good. I am happy to be at Chelsea.’
