Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde has reacted to claims that he is the pursuit of English premier League side Chelsea star Andreas Christensen.

Andreas Christensen was linked to Barcelona some few weeks back with the report stating that he is wanted at  Camp Nou.

In his response, manager Ernesto Valverde stated that he is happy with his squad and will rather stick with them until the return of French international Umtiti.

The Chelsea star was a major part of Blues team when former manager Antonio Conte was in charge but the situation changed for him with the coming of the Italian boss Maurizio Sarri.

Andreas Christensen is therefore considering a move away from the Stamford Bridge as he hopes to continue his career elsewhere.

The 22-year-old extended his contract with Chelsea at the beginning of the year until 2022 and there are suggestions that his wish to move on could be blocked because of the high need of the club for him.

Andreas Christensen is believed to have age on his side and could still have his place in the heart of the West London team because of the shorter days of Brazilian international David Luiz at the club.
