Chelsea have confirmed Andreas Christensen will leave the club when his contract expires later this month.

The Danish defender, 26, is widely expected to join Barcelona on a free transfer.

Christensen made 161 appearances during a decade with the Blues, lifting the Champions League, Europa League, Club World Cup and Super Cup along the way.

A club statement said: "Chelsea thank Andreas for his contribution to our success in the last decade and wish him well in his future career."

Thomas Tuchel's squad is set to undergo a period of transition this summer as a result of the successful takeover of the Stamford Bridge outfit by a Todd Boehly-led consortium.

Antonio Rudiger has already agreed to join Real Madrid on a free and the world champions have also confirmed that Danny Drinkwater, Charly Musonda and Jake Clarke-Salter will not see their contracts renewed.
