Andreas Christensen is a Danish international defender who is on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach for two season, this season and next, and is set to take on Man City in the Champions League tonight.

The 19 year old has been at Chelsea since 2012 and signed a 5 year deal before joining the Bundesliga outfit this summer. Christensen is a ball playing centre half, and hit the news when he became the highest paid player ever to play in the FA Youth Cup, earning a reported £20,000 per week despite never playing a first team game at that point. 

Chelsea beat competition from Barcelona, Man United and Man City to sign the defender as a 16 year old from Brondby in Denmark, and he could be key as Gladbach look to gain an upper hand over their Champions League group rivals. 

He is one of the best prospects to come through the youth system at Chelsea, and blues fans will be hoping that he can continue his development with his time in Germany.
