After months of speculation, Andreas Christensen is set to remain with Chelsea after admitting to Danish media that the decision to stay was made ‘some time’ ago, along with more gametime.
 
It was speculated that the 23-year-old Danish international could be on his way back in January, with interest from Italy, but a run of games towards the end of the season and being part of the starting line-up in the Europa League triumph has changed his stance.
 
In quotes to press prior to Denmark’s Euro 2020 qualifiers with Ireland and Georgia, via the Mirror, Andreas Christensen made it crystal clear to Blues fans on his club future;
 
I’m not wondering about my future now and I haven’t done that for some time.”
 
I’m happy to be in London and, with the way the season has evolved, there’s no reason to think about it anymore.”
 
I’m only 23, so it’s probably very wise to stay. It’s nice that there is peace and quiet and I can concentrate on playing football.”
 
I have always been happy but there have been times when I wanted to play more.
 
If I can play as much in the future as I have done in the spring, then that’s fine.”
 
The end of the season has really been as good as it could. I got a lot of playing time and we ended up winning a trophy, so it couldn’t be better.”
 
There’s speculation in the report that it also may have something to do with the likely departure of Maurizio Sarri to Juventus – that though is just one other theory to Christensen’s u-turn.
