Chelsea are yet to find an agreement with Andreas Christensen over a new contract, The Telegraph reports.
The Denmark international has been a regular starter for the Blues in recent seasons, but his future with the club remains uncertain.
His contract expires at the end of the campaign, and there has reportedly been an impasse in negotiations due to multiple differences.
The Blues have refused to meet the financial demands of Christensen’s agent while the defender is reluctant to sign a five-year contract.
The Dane prefers to extend his stay for only three seasons. This has stunned the club’s hierarchy, who thought that a deal was in the bag.
There could be a fresh round of talks after the international break, and the Blues will be hoping to find a resolution before the New Year.
Else, Christensen can negotiate a pre-contract with a foreign club. The Blues could also be tempted to sanction his sale in the next transfer window.
