The Danish international has established himself as a vital player at Stamford Bridge under Thomas Tuchel. They are hoping to tie him down to a new long-term deal.
SPORT claims that the Chelsea academy graduate is intent on signing for the Catalan giants who are also keen on the defender. The report also adds that Xavi’s side has been planning a move for Christensen since last January, with a loan move being discussed but it didn’t happen due to presidential elections.
The centre-back is believed to be attracted to the prospect of signing for the club on a free transfer next summer. The agreement between the two clubs is very close, with Dutchman even rejecting multiple offers from the Blues over a renewal.
Barça are reconsidering making a move for Christensen. It is because one of their long-term transfer targets, Matthijs de Ligt, could become available in the summer, after deciding to leave Juventus at the end of the season.
