Spanish League giant Barcelona officially signed Andreas Christensen a few hours after confirming the presence of Franck Kessie, Monday (04/07/2022).
Barcelona also recruited Andreas Christensen for free. Because his contract at Chelsea expires in the summer of 2022.
Previously, Christensen himself had been linked with a number of clubs. But in the end he chose to join Barcelona.
But he also had problems, just like Franck Kessie. Barcelona had difficulty registering him due to financial problems.
Barcelona announced Franck Kessie on Monday (04/07/2022) evening WIB. A few hours later, it was the Blaugrana’s turn to announce the transfer of Andreas Christensen.
The duration of his contract is also the same as Kessie, four years. He also has a 500 million euro release clause.
Christensen Presentation Schedule
Andreas Christensen was announced shortly after Franck Kessie. However, he will not be introduced to fans and journalists on the same day.
Andreas Christensen will be introduced to fans and journalists on 7 July. Kessie’s presentation was the day before.
The presentation location is also still the same, namely at Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. Christensen will later sign a contract, then be introduced to fans by wearing the new Barcelona jersey for the 2022-23 season.
He will also have a photo session. After that, Christensen will have an introductory session with the journalists.
Andres Christensen is a tall defender. It sure is solid in the air.
He could be a replacement for Gerard Pique. Pique is now 35 years old.
“Christensen is a strong central defender who is very good in the air. Technically adept with the ball at his feet too, he is a perfect fit for the Blaugrana back four,” wrote Barcelona on their official website.
