Andreas Christensen, a Danish defender whom Barcelona just announced they had signed on a free transfer, needs to be more aggressive, according to one former midfielder.
Following a deal with him earlier in the year, the Blaugrana confirmed the defender’s acquisition this past weekend. They now need to work to get him registered in time for the season to begin.
The eight-year contract of the Danish defender with Chelsea expired at the conclusion of the previous campaign, and he departed the club.
He now joins players like Gerard Pique, Clement Lenglet, Ronald Araujo, Eric Garcia, and others in Barcelona’s defense, which often struggled in the first part of the previous season.
Christensen, in Fabregas’ opinion, still lacks one more quality
Cesc Fabregas, who played for Chelsea and Barcelona before joining Chelsea, says he is delighted with the deal but feels Christensen is missing one characteristic.
“He seems to be a fantastic player. On a recent Twitch live, Fabregas observed, “You could see how he could read the game and anticipate the action when he was little.

“Now, I always think he needs to be a little bit more of a bastard at times. It resembles Eric Garca a little bit, in my opinion. In today’s game, you must be a bit more powerful without assaulting anybody.”
In addition to Christensen, Barcelona has been searching for defensive reinforcements. Jules Kounde of Sevilla has been regarded as a potential transfer target.
The French defender has made it known that he wants to leave his club, and Sevilla are willing to sell. However, the exorbitant asking price makes a transfer difficult.
Following the activation of a few economic levers, which was accomplished via the sale of shares of the club’s property, Barcelona is anticipating an instant increase in money that will aid them in the near term.
