Antonio Rudiger’s contract ends at the end of this season, and as far as we can see, he’s moving towards the exit at Chelsea.
Talks about a new deal appear to have reached a stalemate, and from January he can speak to teams abroad about a summer free transfer.
That made securing Andreas Christensen’s future at Stamford Bridge all the more important, and the good news is that there seems to have been a breakthrough there.
Chelsea have an agreement in place with Andreas Christensen to extend his contract. Matter of time to sign paperworks, after final clauses to be fixed 🔵🇩🇰 #CFC
Two clubs showed interest in Christensen in the last weeks – but no chance for talks as he’s set to sign the new deal.

Fabrizio Romano yesterday Tweeted that it’s a “matter of time” before the deal is done, with just a few final clauses to be agreed.
That’s a huge relief, after the superb 12 months that AC has had. Losing one of your first choice centre backs on a free would be bad. Losing two would have been a catastrophe.
With Rudiger gone, this Cobham product will have a superb chance to step up again and become the head man at the back.
