Chelsea are reportedly on the cusp of finalising a new contract for defender Andreas Christensen.

The Dane has been delaying negotiations in recent months, but it appears the Blues have eventually made the breakthrough.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the west London giants have made good progress in contract talks, and a renewal is 'very close'.

The news will come as a huge blow for Barcelona and AC Milan, who were planning to sign him on a free transfer next summer.

Christensen's current deal expires in June next year, and reports claim that he has agreed to sign a fresh three-year contract.

The Blues were initially eyeing a five-year extension, but they seem to have eventually accepted to meet the player's demands.

Aside from Christensen, the Blues are in regular talks with Antonio Rudiger, but the German has no plans of renewing his stay.

He is eyeing a staggering wage package of around £400,000-a-week. Real Madrid could sign him when his deal expires in June.
