Barcelona have confirmed their second signing of the day, with Andreas Christensen announced just hours after Franck Kessie’s arrival.
The Danish defender left Chelsea when his contract expired this summer and therefore joins the Spanish giants on a free transfer.
Christensen has joined LaLiga side Barcelona on a four-year contract, with a massive £430million release clause at the Nou Camp.
The club said on their website: ‘At 1.88m, Christensen is a powerful centre back who is excellent in the air. Technically proficient with the ball at his feet also, he is a perfect fit for the blaugrana back four.’
Christensen, 26, joined Chelsea in February 2012 and graduated to senior football after two years in the academy.
In six seasons at Chelsea – two were spent on loan at German side Borussia Monchengladbach – he made 161 appearances in all competitions, scoring two goals.
