Manchester City have been linked with a really interesting – if unlikely – target. Andreas Christensen.
The defender has broken into the Chelsea team in recent weeks and has been utterly superb, after two years in the Bundesliga where he showed off his impressive talents week in week out.
Apparently Pat Nevin mentioned it on Irish radio, and it was then reported on 101 Great Goals.
Nevin is not only a well liked and respected journalist, he’s also a Chelsea man through and through, and has proven many times that he’s well connected at the club. There’s no reason to doubt his sources, perhaps only the sources that relay the information to us.
While it’s surprising as its so unexpected, it shouldn’t really raise any eyebrows that Pep likes Christensen. Most managers in world football are probably looking at him enviously right now, especially one who likes his defenders to be able to pass and play under pressure.
Liking him is one thing, getting him will be significantly more difficult.
