Andreas Christensen (10-4-1996) will not come for free to Barça. The Danish defender, who has closed his agreement with Barça for five seasons, will maintain a high salary despite the delicate economic situation of the Barça team. As AS learned, his salary will be around five million euros net per season. In total, 25 million for the five years that he has promised in the absence of the signature.
Criticized in recent weeks by Chelsea fans, who believe that he already has more in mind for Barça, Christensen, who will add to the list of Danish players in Barça history (Simonsen, Laudrup, Christiansen, Ekelung, Braithwaite) Nor does it generate unanimity in the Barça Board of Directors. There are those who think that he will suffer with so many meters behind him and that he does not have the reliability of Araújo in physical duels. At least, his arrival has not prevented the Barça club from reaching an agreement with the Uruguayan for his continuity.
Of course, Christensen will be very far from the salary margins in which Gerard Piqué still moves, who, except for surprise, will continue next season in the center of defense along with Araújo and Eric Garcia. Barça’s idea is to get rid of Lenglet, who this year has been asked to lower his salary, Umtiti and Mingueza. Barça could run out of left-handers in the center of defense, because it also threatens to sign Romagnoli, although that is no guarantee of anything. With skillful defensive centers (Márquez-Puyol; Piqué-Puyol or Piqué-Mascherano) Barça won its last Champions League.
