Max Eberl: Andreas Christensen could extend his stay at Borussia Monchengladbach

Borussia Monchengladbach sporting director Max Eberl has revealed that he believes that defender Andreas Christensen, on loan at Gladbach from Chelsea, would like to stay at the club beyond this season.

“It is certain that we will lose Andreas at the end of the season, because he has to return to Chelsea.” Eberl told Kicker.

“But, if he completes pre-season at Chelsea and then does not play the role that he hopes to, we have the chance to talk again as a club where he has gained two years’ of good experience.

“It could also be that he plays. Or it may be the case that they want to sell him for €25 million, then we would be out of the race.

“But there are still these opportunities, because Andreas is incredibly comfortable in Gladbach and he, I think, would like to stay in Gladbach.

“He would also like to be a regular in Chelsea’s starting XI, but they have just become champions who will play in the Champions League and will also want to achieve something next season.

“In any case, Andreas feels very comfortable in Gladbach.” Eberl concluded.
