AC Milan and Barcelona have been linked with Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen. But the player is likely to sign a new contract at Stamford Bridge.

The Rossoneri are on the lookout for a new centre-back in January. After losing the rest of the season to Simon Kier following knee ligament surgery.

Coming to Milan, Christensen will be paired up with old friend Fikayo Tomori, who was born fully in Italy. Since moving to the San Siro area

Barcelona are also keen on bringing in the 25-year-old Denmark international in the summer as a free agent, according to Fabricio Romano.

However, the same source added that the Blues are confident Christensen will sign a new contract to stay at Stamford Bridge.

Still, he has been somewhat disappointed with his relatively few appearances under Thomas Tuchel. He making 15 appearances this season in all competitions, scoring one goal.

Elsewhere, Stan Collymore has suggested that Chelsea players lack “humility” in comparison to Liverpool:

‘If you go back to the start of the 2019-20 season, after Liverpool had won the Champions League and had been runners-up on record points in the Premier League. I saw a really cold, business-like attitude from them when they reported back for pre-season.

‘I remember seeing videos of players and it was just a handshake. A little smile, and very much a feeling of, “We’re back on it, this is going to be a big season for us and this is where the work really starts”.

‘I remember watching Virgil Van Dijk almost on a loop with a deadpan face saying: “We’ve achieved nothing yet”.

‘There was a humility and a grounded nature about such as Van Dijk, Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold. That I’m not seeing and hearing from some Chelsea players.

‘And it makes me wonder if what is essentially a young Chelsea team are enjoying the success. They have had even one per cent too much.

‘There seems to be a feeling of, “Ah, we’ve won the Champions League. So it’s an absolute shoo-in that we’re going to be in the conversation for the league”, and that’s not the right mentality.Because it only takes three players to start thinking or feeling that way for it to become a bit of problem.
