Andreas Christensen departed Chelsea for Barcelona on a free transfer at the conclusion of the previous campaign.
If Barcelona does not register Andreas Christensen before the end of the week, Chelsea may be given the opportunity to re-sign him on a free transfer. Following a summer buying spree of £137 million that shows no indications of slowing down anytime soon, the Catalan giants have sleepwalked back into further worrying financial troubles.
Barcelona moved quickly at the opening of the year to capture Franck Kessie and Andreas Christensen on free transfers from AC Milan and Chelsea, respectively, to commence a statement summer.
Raphinha, Jules Kounde, and Robert Lewandowski have all signed permanent deals since then, although Barcelona has yet to register some of its new additions due to their inflated squad.
Andreas Christensen could be set to depart Barcelona on a free if he’s not registered in time
In addition, Barcelona is currently in violation of La Liga’s salary cap rules as they desperately try to come up with a solution.
ESPN claims that if Kessie and Christensen are not registered by this Sunday, they might both shockingly go on free transfers.
De Jong is convinced that he wants to stay at Camp Nou, therefore there may possibly be a legal dispute between the club and the player.
The Catalan giants may be forced to come up with an extraordinary Plan B that risks losing some of their new acquisitions if there is no movement, despite the fact that some prominent Barcelona players, like Gerard Pique, have already consented to a pay drop.
Thomas Tuchel is still a huge fan of Christensen and regrets that he had to leave West London without reaching a new deal.
Chelsea is still looking for another central defender, however Leicester City’s Wesley Fofana is their top priority.
