Andreas Christensen has reportedly stunned Chelsea with a last-minute demand to change the contract terms he was previously offered by the club.
According to The Telegraph via Metro, Chelsea were convinced they had finally agreed a new five-year contract with Andreas Christensen only for the defender to demand a last-minute change to the terms.
Christensen was set to land a bumper pay rise and put pen to paper on a five-year contract, with everything agreed, only for the 25 year defender to demand a change to the length of the contract.
Christensen’s agent has stunned Chelsea by demanding his contract be reduced from five years down to just three.
The Blues are unwilling to agree to a relatively short deal for a player entering his prime years as it would mean Chelsea would practically need to begin negotiating fresh terms again almost immediately.
The contract length is now what is stopping Christensen from extending his Chelsea contract. With Christensen’s contract expiring at the end of the season, the defender will leave Chelsea as a free agent next summer if a compromise isn’t reached.
