FC Barcelona already has two signings made for next season. One of them, Andreas Christensen, will be a new option for the Culé defense, where he will most likely arrive with a low profile.
The father of Andreas Christensen has been an important mate in his career. Four years ago, after signing his last renewal with Chelsea, the player was consulted how wanted to celebrate it, since it is not of those that go airing his emotions. "I asked him if it wanted to go out or go to dine was. But it said me that no. It was thinking already in the following party. It said me that only it wanted to go home, ask something and go to sleep", declared the father.
The Danish defence, that has closed his agreement with the FC Barcelona by five seasons, will keep a high wage in spite of the delicate economic situation of the Barcelona group. As it informed 'ACE', his wage will be around the five million net euros by season. In total, 25 millions by the five years that has agreed to, to fault of the signature.
Christensen has won the fame of shy type. In his surroundings and in the clubs that has played. The defender is of these people that measure his words. "It is a footballer that thinks a lot before speaking", signals Jesper Amster, Danish journalist of 'TV 2 Sport'. Also it precedes him an image of home-made type and stands out by his big ethical of work.
His discipline has done that it was very valued by the technicians. Since it was signalled like an important talent, has showed always a quite precocious maturity, quality that already sounded when it directed to the first team of Chelsea with alone 16 years. Christensen fixed in David Luiz and John Terry, for example, with a low profile. It listened and hardly it spoke.
Criticised in the last weeks by the followers of Chelsea, that think that already taenia more the head in the Barça that in London, Christensen, neither generates unanimity in the managerial Board culé. There is the one who thinks that it will suffer with so many metres to the back and that does not have the reliability of Araújo in the physical duels. At least, his arrival has not prevented that the Barcelona club arrive to an agreement with the Uruguayan for his continuity.
The Barça already has hired for the next season to Christensen and also to Franck Kessié. Although his agreements with his teams do not finish until 30 June, the Catalan picture could announce already his signings without any problem. However, in the Camp Nou do not have any haste, having other fronts with work still for doing, by what the announcements will do expect some weeks, probably to the end of June.
