Barcelona confirm Christensen has enormous release clause in new contract

Barcelona and Andreas Bødtker Christensen have reached an agreement for the player to join the club after his contract with Chelsea FC came to an end.

‘The player will sign a contract until 30 June 2026 and his buyout clause will be set at 500 million euros.’

Chelsea have lost two first team centre-backs on free transfers this summer, with Antonio Rudiger also heading to Spain where he will be rivals with Christensen at Real Madrid.

The Blues are working hard to bring in new central defenders but are struggling to make headway in the transfer market.

Juventus’ Matthijs de Ligt and Sevilla’s Jules Kounde have been touted, but negotiations have not progressed and Manchester City’s Nathan Ake looks a more likely option at this stage.

The likes of Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar and Paris Saint-Germain’s Presnel Kimpembe have also been linked as Thomas Tuchel looks to revamp his defence.
