He’s currently on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach but the club’s sporting director doesn’t think will sell Andreas Christensen to or Barcelona, report Metro.

The Danish international has been linked with the giants lately but both are set to be disappointed in their individual pursuits according to Max Eberl.

Speaking to Sky Deutschland, Eberl claimed: “He’s a top player. Chelsea are taking care of those players they’ve loaned out very well.

“He’ll be a world-class player. Chelsea are not going to sell such a player to Barcelona or Bayern. So, another way is still possible.”

Having made 38 appearances for Gladbach so far, Christensen is firmly a first choice selection at Borussia Park but it would appear the German side haven’t totally given up hope of landing him themselves.

Offering the Blues £14.25 million for Christensen in the summer, turned that offer down with Antonio Conte’s side still clearly having designs on him potentially partnering Kurt Zouma in the future.

However, Eberl remains hopeful that a deal can be done, claiming: “It will be a hard task but I am hopeful that we can do it.”
