Andreas Christensen warns Maurizio Sarri he will ask for a transfer

Andreas Christensen warns Maurizio Sarri he will ask for a transfer

The 22-year-old made 40 appearances for the Blues last season under previous head coach Antonio Conte, establishing himself as a regular member of the Italian's back-three.

The Danish defender has however been relegated to the bench since the arrival of new manager Maurizio Sarri - making just three appearances in all competitions so far this season. "To be honest, it has been very hard", Christensen told BTSport.

A report in the Telegraph now claims that Chelsea - who are believed to owe the 49-year-old around £9m as a result of his sacking - are monitoring his next move closely, with Conte having been linked with moves to Manchester United, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich in recent days.

"Right now, it's not a good season for me, but I have to find some way to get back on. How?"

'I can't have so much patience again.

"It has been difficult to get into the team, and when we get the good results that we now do, it will only be even harder".

'It's too early to talk about when to change or if I'm going to change.

Christensen joined Chelsea in 2012 at the age of 16 from Brondby.

Spanish newspaper AS quoted him as saying: "What I can say is that I am very calm and very happy at Chelsea, and that the club must also be with me because, although I still have two years left on my contract, the club have offered me an extension".

Only time will tell if Christensen leaves Chelsea behind or continues his stay at the club. Next up they will face BATE in the third round of the group stage.

"Football is a game that has the power to inspire and nurture the sense of responsibility, confidence, and discipline in everyone".
