European Champions Barcelona are considering a surprise swoop for Chelsea youngster Andreas Christensen, according to reports from the Daily Mail
Christensen joined German side Borussia Monchengladbach from Chelsea on a two year loan deal at the start of the current campaign and the youngster has managed to impress during his time at the Borussia-Park so far.
Given John Terry’s announcement that he will be leaving Chelsea at the end of the current campaign, there have been talks that the Blues will look to cut Christensen’s loan spell at Monchengladbach short as they view the youngster as a potential replacement for their captain.
On the other hand, Monchengladbach are not ready to allow Christensen to leave and are instead hopeful of turning the loan deal into a permanent one at the end of the season.

Barcelona scouts were said to have been impressed with the elegant Dane’s performances for Monchengladbach and it is believed that the club hierarchy have identified the teenager as a potential long term successor to Gerard Pique.
