Andreas Christensen says that he is yet to speak to Antonio Conte, but has been told to report for pre-season at Chelsea.
Christensen has spent the past two seasons on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach, impressing in both the Bundesliga and the Champions League.
The 21-year-old made 81 appearances across both seasons in Germany, and we reckon he is tailor-made for the Blues’ starting line-up next season.
The Dane’s agent and father has already said that Conte wants him back at Stamford Bridge, and while Christensen admits he hasn’t spoken to the manager, he has been told to report for pre-season training.
“I will join up with Chelsea on July 7th. I haven’t talked to Conte yet,” Christensen told the Express.
“I have talked to the sporting director and all those responsible for getting the players set up with a flat and what else belongs to them.
“The sports director says the plan is that I meet like all the others and go through the pre-season.”
