FC Chelsea: Andreas Christensen did without FA-Cup
Andreas Christensen (26) from Chelsea FC apparently voluntarily dispensed with a mission at the FA Cup final on Saturday against Liverpool. His team ultimately lost 5: 6 in a penalty shootout.
According to matching English media reports, Christiansen did not feel good and therefore left the team hotel, which his Chelsea colleagues are said to have confused. Trainer Thomas Tuchel replaced Christensen with Trevoh Chalobah in the starting eleven at short notice.
After the game, Tuchel confirmed that the Danish central defender would leave the club free of charge in the summer. FC Barcelona is the probable goal, and FC Bayern Munich was initially considered a potential prospect.
In the last Premier League game against Leeds United, Christensen had played through. It is currently unlikely that he will return to the squad again for the final two league games against Leicester City and FC Watford. Chelsea still needs two points for a fixed Champions League qualification.

There was also a similar process at FC Bayern at the weekend, albeit with an less important game. Niklas Süle, who will switch to Borussia Dortmund free of charge in the summer, refrained from using the away game against VfL Wolfsburg (2: 2). "Niki was not that far in the final training session. I asked him if he wanted to go to Wolfsburg. He said: 'Rather not', explained coach Julian Nagelsmann.
