Chelsea still optimistic that wonderkid will replace Terry

According to reports, Chelsea‘s desire to replace John Terry this summer may be tempered by the promise of Andreas Christensen.

The veteran centre back and iconic club captain is coming to the end of his contract at Stamford Bridge, and while it is not yet certain that he will be leaving, it appears likely that his career long tenure in West London will soon be at an end.

The former England skipper has insisted that he won’t be representing another English side, and thus the prospect of a move abroad looks likely.

Terry has been a fixture at Stamford Bridge since the nascent days of his career, and he will not be easy to replace. Various names have been bandied around as potential long-term solutions to the void  that will be left by Terry when he does make his exit, but according to the Telegraph the answer may come from within.

The broadsheet report that the club have great faith that 19-year-old Christensen, who is already been capped by Denmark, will soon be ready to step in to JT’s shoes.

Blues fans maybe shouldn’t expect this to happen next season, meaning there may yet be a need for reinforcements to be brought in, with the Telegraph noting that within the ‘next few seasons’ the club’s hierarchy confident the Christensen will step up.
