Andreas Christensen has been quite the curious case at Barcelona, ever since he joined the club on a free transfer.

The defender has been used as a pawn of sorts by the management, utilising his versatility at one moment while mulling his departure at the other.

Amid wide-ranging confusion over Christensen’s future at Barcelona, the club have a crucial decision to make this summer. And that decision could be influenced greatly by Barça’s ongoing economic woes.

Christensen’s rise to prominence is evident in his crucial goals at the Parc des Princes against Paris Saint-Germain, the Clasico at the Santiago Bernabeu, and most recently, in Girona.

Although the interested parties remain unnamed, the report adds that Christensen’s upcoming participation in the European Championship with Denmark could further inflate his market price.

A boost for Barcelona’s FFP margins

The decision ultimately rests with Christensen himself, who reportedly feels comfortable at Barcelona. However, his future might be swayed by the club’s transfer plans for next season.

Barcelona’s financial situation means any potential sale of Christensen would be a significant boost to their transfer kitty, as his entire transfer fee would be usable within La Liga’s financial fair play regulations.

Barcelona’s idea is to bring in a new defensive midfielder with the current finances they have. Should they achieve this task, Christensen will be allowed to return to his central defensive position, something Xavi Hernandez is desperately betting on.

But if the FFP margin pose problems for Barça yet again, the club might consider the sale of the Danish international.
