In the search for a new central defender, FC Bayern found what they were looking for in the English Premier League. According to current media reports, Munich have targeted Danish international Andreas Christensen.
Bayern have recently been associated with many central defenders. In addition to Nico Schlotterbeck and Matthias Ginter, Antonio Rüdiger should also be on the list of record champions. As the transfer insider reports, FCB has another Chelsea professional on their radar in Andreas Christensen.
“The final decision will be made soon”

Just like Rüdiger, the Dane’s contract expires at the end of the season. Contract talks with the Blues are sluggish. The 25-year-old is said to have received an offer, but hesitates because it does not meet his financial demands.
According to Romano, Bayern have “strong interest” in the defender, who could replace Niklas Süle next summer should he leave the club. In addition to Munich, FC Barcelona should also be on Christensen’s turn.
Christensen is no stranger to the Bundesliga. Between 2015 and 2017, the central defender played on loan at Borussia Mönchengladbach. At the time, the Foals wanted to sign the Danish international, but the English vetoed the move.
