According to Danish paper BT, on-loan Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen is set to return to Chelsea at the end of the season…
Having spent 2 seasons on loan with Borussia Dortmund, it would appear as though Antonio Conte and Chelsea feel as though the young central defender is ready for the big leagues – with a starting role at Chelsea seemingly on the cards next season.
Conversely, John Terry is beginning to look like a likely absentee from the the Blues team next season – with his form and fitness decreasing and his contract set to expire at the end of the season.
In truth, the summer is beginning to look like a real period of change for Chelsea at the back – and no area is going to get swapped around as much as the defensive line. With a few players potentially leaving and a few joining – Chelsea’s defence could be indistinguishable next season – with Conte finally building the team that he wants.
The 3-4-3 formation looks set to stay, and so the defence going forward will likely consist of just 3 defenders – and with John Terry likely to leave and Christensen to come in, who might start for the Blues next season?
With that said, is this Conte’s dream Chelsea back three for the 2017/18 season?
