"We are not happy about it" - Thomas Tuchel sheds light on Chelsea star's rumored transfer agreement with Barcelona


Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has revealed that the Blues are not happy about Andreas Christensen's proposed transfer to Barcelona . The Denmark international has just a few months left on his current deal with the Stamford Bridge outfit and is yet to commit terms to a fresh contract. Speculation is rife that he has agreed a deal to join Barcelona on a free transfer in the summer.

Thomas Tuchel has revealed that the defender's future is uncertain. He also stated Chelsea's displeasure over reports linking Christensen with a move to Barcelona, although the club will live with this if it happens.

“Well it’s in doubt. We hear the rumours and the situation with Andreas is also since many weeks clear. And we are not happy about it. Because we, I, me personally and club representatives, we think that it’s best for him to stay – and we rely heavily on him."

“He did not sign yet, so you cannot not communicate. This is also a signal to us. And the communication from his side is that he did not sign until now. So we have to consider the possibility that he leaves us. Will we like it? No. Will we live with it? Yes. Things are not personal, never, never should be personal. But this can happen," he added.

Andreas Christensen came through the famed Chelsea academy and made his first-team debut in 2013. A two-year loan spell with Borussia monchengladbach saw his stock rise and big things were expected from him upon his return to Stamford Bridge in 2017.

However, things have not gone according to plan and the Denmark international currently finds himself down the pecking order in defense.
