AC Milan are in negotiations with Chelsea for several players but Andreas Christensen is the most wanted Blues by the Rossoneri.
With Lucas Paqueta already purchased and Zlatan Ibrahimovic on the way, AC Milan can now devote themselves to another area of the pitch that must be reinforced urgently: the defense.
“I should be back in Februaty,” Mattia Caldara said confident yesterday. But the club is obliged to take precautions, especially considering the not serious but neither trivial injuries of Alessio Romagnoli and Mateo Musacchio. So in addition to Rodrigo Caio of Sao Paulo, in the last hours sporting director Leonardo has advanced in negotiations to sign Andreas Christensen.
La Gazzetta dello Sport confirms the rumors of recent days, also strongly echoed in England. According to The Sun, the Devil has in fact initiated contacts with the Blues. The Rossoneri management appreciates a lot the 22 year old centre back, as well as Gary Cahill and midfielder Cesc Fabregas (read here).
However, among the trio that has fallen out of favor with coach Maurizio Sarri, AC Milan are insisting for the Danish defender for obvious reasons reasons of age and perspective. Andreas Christensen, a product of Chelsea’s youth ranks, has an excellent curriculum. Despite his young age, Christensen is a pillar of the Denmark national team since 2015, the same year when he made his debut in Champions League.
The 22 year old has lost his starting spot and needs to put minutes back in his legs and find continuity. This is why, highlights the Italian newspaper, a loan move could make everyone happy. On one hand Milan that would have the central defender that currently lacks, furthermore at favorable economic conditions, on the other Roman Abramovic that thus offers an opportunity for growth and game time to a talented defender considered an asset for Chelsea. Shortly after Tiemoue Bakayoko, Christensen could be the second Chelsea player to join Milan.
