The FC Barcelona confirmed this Monday the signing of Andreas Christensen by the next four seasons. The central Danish arrives pertinent of Chelsea like free agent, after almost ten years in the entity 'blue'. It will be one of the reinforcements for the Barcelona defence, where already are Gerard Hammered, Eric Grcía and Ronald Araújo that aims to be the big leader of the culés in low zone.

Christensen comes of a quite irregular season under the orders of Thomas Tuchel in the Stamford Bridge, but is a player that fits in the plans of the Barcelona picture and that has the profile of the central of the Barça, especially by his good exit of balloon. The Danish no incomoda to the hour to do with the spherical and progress with him, by what aims to be important in the approach of Xavi, although the most likely is that it go in in rotation.

Where more has stood out the central of 25 years is a defence of three, so much in Chelsea as in the Danish selection, being 'fixed' as central right. In the past season, contested 34 parties with two goals and some assistances. 29 of the clashes played them like titling. Although it is true in a few parties left a lot of doubts (as against the Real Madrid in the Stamford Bridge), is a player that had the total support of his trainers: Tuchel, Sarri or Lampard.

If there is something by what has stood out Christensen from his 'takeoff' during his cession in the Mönchengladbach, is that it is a central very agile with and without balloon, that is used to to react of way very fast in front of the pressure rival and that, besides, knows to anticipate to the danger to avoid that the contrary can do with the balloon. Likewise, in Chelsea has been able to begin the played from backwards to help in the construction until arriving to the zone of the rival attack.

Relation that can be very fruitful

The central Danish appears in offensive zone to give superiority to the team and go up the defensive line, costing in addition to his dribbling not to leave drag by the contrary pressure, a key factor for his drivings. Nevertheless, between the appearances that will have to improve so that his stay in the Spotify Camp Nou was more fruitful is his timidity in some cases, put in several parties has happened unobserved (against the Madrid noticed ) by not being impetuous or go 'strong' to the crash. This yes, compensates it with his tactical intelligence and maximum concentration in the terrain of game, trying be attentive for, as we mentioned before, anticipate to the danger.
