Here is your Chelsea morning digest on Monday, March 7.
Christensen move close
Fabrizio Romano has provided an update on the future of Andreas Christensen.
The Italian journalist tweeted: “Andreas Christensen has turned down proposals from English clubs to be respectful with Chelsea. He’s now really close to join Barcelona as free agent, contract proposal’s better than Bayern one.
“Final details missing – new meeting expected next week to complete the deal.”
McGregor sends warning to Chelsea
Conor McGregor has confirmed that he’s serious about taking over Chelsea and he believes he’s the ‘perfect’ man to replace Roman Abramovich.
Abramovich has been forced to put the club up for sale due to the fallout from Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.
Prospective buyers are now preparing their offers, and surprisingly, McGregor has confirmed that he’s serious about taking over a football club.
What Mount did before Havertz scored vs Burnley
The Blues have bounced back well since suffering a difficult penalties loss to Liverpool in the Carabao Cup final last weekend, and it appears as though their team spirit is high.
That much was proved by Mason Mount, who showed an enormous amount of confidence in fellow teammate Kai Havertz against Burnley at the weekend.
It seemed that Mount knew Havertz was going to score before the German frontman even took aim for his first goal. Christian Pulisic sent a cross into the back post and as it soared over Connor Roberts’ head to the unmarked Havertz, he simply had to guide a header home.
And Mount knew he would have no problems doing just that as he was pictured celebrating the German’s first goal before he even connected with the header past Nick Pope in the Burnley net, showing that he trusted his teammate to finish off the Blues’ move.
