Chelsea youngster Andreas Christensen is now in his 18th month on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach, and will return to Chelsea at the end of the season.
The youngster’s father and agent Sten Christensen, has warned that the 20-year-old will not come back to Chelsea to sit on the bench.
“Chelsea would like Andreas back, and they have wanted that for a long time,” he told Danish outlet BT. “But it was a two-year lease, so there was nothing they could do.
“They have worked to get him back before, but Gladbach would not let him go. Instead, they want to buy Andreas, but will Chelsea get rid of him, and is the price too high?
“As it is right now, he’ll be back at Chelsea again this summer. It is important to Andreas that he plays. He will not return to Chelsea just to sit on the bench.
“This transfer window will determine how Andreas’ situation will look in the summer. If Chelsea buy 10 centre-backs, it may well be that we need to do something else.”
