Central defender Andres Christensen garnering interest from several clubs, but Barça do not intend to sell
The Blaugrana club are delighted with the Dane so far and consider him a regular in the team
Barca will need to sell this summer and are meeting with most of the first-team players' agents, although they will hold out to market value and not make any concessions.
On Thursday there was a meeting with Ilhan Gindogan, uncle of the Manchester City player and agent of Christensen, who has attracted interest from several Premier League teams. The Blaugrana club have no intentions to sell and are likely to extend his stay.
Christensen's acquisition was a great piece of business by the sporting department, nabbing him on a free transfer. The Blaugrana club inched ahead of Chelsea and prevented his renewal. Mateu Alemany was instrumental in the process.
Game by game he has become a key player in Xavi Hernandez's scheme and is already a regular starter in important matches. His reliability has made him one of the best signings of the summer.
The Danish centre-back's performances are not going unnoticed in the market and there are several clubs interested in the player. Barça know this first-hand, but the answer is clear and also depends on the continuity of Christensen, who finishes his contract in 2026 and has a release clause of 500 million euros.
Last week 'The Athletic' speculated about possible interest from Barça to take advantage of this situation, but after talks with his agents, it has become quite clear that he will not move from Camp Nou.
It is also true that there is an English club that would be willing to present a very big offer. Barça's idea this summer is to sell some players, but not any of their key players.
Xavi's starting line-up is currently deemed untouchable. In fact, in the case of Christensen, the idea is to start talking about a new contract next season, given that he has a long way to go at the club.
