In Barcelona, the player moved as a free agent. He previously had an expired contract with Chelsea. He signs with the Catalans on a contract until June 30, 2026. The release clause in the agreement is €500 million.
It is the same length of contract as signed by Franck Kessie, who was confirmed as a Barca player earlier the same day. Both men have €500 million release clauses, while Christensen’s unveiling will take place on Thursday – the day after the midfielder signed from Milan.
The 26-year-old central midfielder has seen a move to Barcelona since it was revealed that he would not be signing a new contract with the English club.
The long drawn-out saga, complicated by ongoing financial problems at Barcelona, has finally come to an end.
