Chelsea have announced that defender Andreas Christensen has signed a new four-and-a-half-year contract.

The 21-year-old has committed himself to the Premier League champions until the end of the 2021-22 season.

Christensen's new deal comes as a reward for his strong performances under Antonio Conte this term.

"It feels really good to sign a new contract and I'm just happy to be committed to Chelsea for the future," the centre-back told the club's official website.

"I've played a lot of games, I'm enjoying it at the club and everything is working well."

Barcelona eyeing up Christensen this January

  Barcelona eyeing up Christensen this January Barcelona are reportedly seeing Chelsea’s young defender, Andreas Christensen as a possible signing this January, according to The Mirror. Ernesto Valverde is trying to make his own squad of young players at Barcelona, shown by the vast number of young signings who joined the Catalan giants last summer. Defenders such as Javier Mascherano look to be on the way out of the Camp Nou, and so Valverde wants to find a young world-class centre-back, and has reportedly seen Christensen as his target. Christensen has really fought his way into the Blues’ side this campaign, making 22 appearances in all competitions so far this season. These impressive performances have put him as first-choice now over David Luiz. Luiz started the season well, featuring in 11 of the first 16 games of the season, and being injured for three of those 16. However, Christensen’s performances have seen him out of the side and the young Dane has taken place and fitted in well. Christensen has suited in the middle of a back three with defenders either side of him such as Cesar Azpilicueta, Gary Cahill and Antonio Rudiger. And his performances don’t look to be letting him down yet. So Andreas Christensen has always been a good player with excellent potential, and this season has shown what he is capable of, with his performances being well noted by Antonio Conte, but also by Ernesto Valverde.

CHELSEA are preparing to open talks with defender Andreas Christensen over a new contract . The Evening Standard reports how Chelsea "want to rewards him for his fine performances with improved terms before he joins up with Denmark for the World Cup next summer".

Christensen said: “It feels really good to sign a new contract and I’m just happy to be committed to Chelsea for the future. Club director Marina Granovskaia - who is playing an increasingly large role in transfers and contracts - added: “This contract is reward for the excellent form Andreas has shown

Christensen signed in 2012 but spent two seasons on loan with Borussia Monchengladbach between 2015 and 2017.

The Denmark international has established himself as a key part of Conte's plans this term, though, making 22 appearances in all competitions.

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said: "This contract is reward for the excellent form Andreas has shown in the first half of the season. He showed immense potential when he signed for Chelsea in 2012 and is now enjoying the benefits of the dedication and professionalism he has shown since.

"After two seasons on loan in Germany, we were convinced he was ready to be a part of the squad this season and he has grasped the opportunity with both hands.

"We are delighted he has chosen to commit his future to Chelsea and we look forward to four and a half more successful years with Andreas at the club."

Talks begin with De Gea over new long-term contract .
Manchester United have contacted David de Gea’s representatives to discuss preliminary talks over a new long-term contract to keep the Spanish goalkeeper at Old Trafford, according to The Telegraph. De Gea’s current contract with United keeps him in Salford for the next 18 months, but there is an option to extend that current contract by a further 12 months, but talks are beginning to extend his stay even further. The extension gives the Red Devils time to extend his £200,000 per week contract, as he has been at the centre of a lot of transfer speculation over the past few seasons, mostly from Los Blancos, Real Madrid. Jorge Mendes, the world-famous football agent, represents both José Mourinho and David De Gea and was discussing Mourinho’s future at Old Trafford with Ed Woodward, where the Portuguese manager is likely to be rewarded with a new deal. Talking about De Gea, his future and his contract, Mourinho said: “A goalkeeper like he is, and obviously a club that wants to be better and better and better, we are not going to let that year option go away.” “But obviously we are going to try to give him a contract that keeps him here for much longer than that option that, of course, we are going to execute.
