Chelsea: the extension of Andreas Christensen at a standstill
Like Antonio Rüdiger, Andreas Christensen (25) will be out of contract at the end of the season.

According to Goal information, the Blues’ proposal would keep Christensen among the club’s lowest wages. As a reminder, from January 1, the Dane will be free to negotiate with the club of his choice.

Manchester United: Solskjaer should keep his post
Threatened after the defeat (0-5) against Liverpool, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should be kept at the head of the Manchester United first team, according to The Athletic and the Sun.

Manchester United will travel to Tottenham next Saturday (6.30 p.m.).
Manchester United: Zidane would not want to succeed Solskjaer
Increasingly contested after Manchester United’s defeat against Liverpool, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be sacked in the coming days or weeks to come.

On the other hand, Antonio Conte appears well as a big option by the Mancunian leaders.
Barça: the Catalan club launches a new offensive for the extension of Dembélé
According to information from Mundo Deportivo unveiled this Tuesday morning, FC Barcelona would have embarked on an operation « Dembélé extension », whose contract ends next June. The objective of the Catalan club is to manage to directly convince the player to extend his adventure at Barça, while his agent would push for a departure.
According to the Spanish daily, the club coached by Ronald Koeman would have set a deadline of one month to convince the French. If this fails, Dembélé could be sold during the next transfer window, in January.
Bayern: towards a sale of Coman by next summer?
Under contract with the Bavarian club until June 2023, the French international Kingsley Coman could change tune by the next summer transfer window. After extending the contracts of Leon Goretzka or Joshua Kimmich recently, Bayern have not reached an agreement with the Habs player. In question: too high salary requirements demanded by the winger trained at PSG.
The Munich board would however be anxious to avoid another « Alaba case », free party to Real Madrid last summer, by finding a base in Coman next summer. Handicapped by injuries this season, he has only played six games (four in the Bundesliga and two in the Champions League). Two names have already been put forward to succeed him at Bayern: those of Karim Adeyemi (Salzburg) and Antony (Ajax).
Conte, Zidane … who are the possible successors of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer?
After the humiliation suffered by the Red Devils at home against Liverpool (0-5) on Sunday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is more than ever on an ejection seat. The United manager, despite the confidence of the Board, is in a more than unfavorable position and several names are starting to filter in England to succeed him, such as those of Antonio Conte and Zinedine Zidane, both free and having been approached recently. by Newcastle.
However, according to former United legend Gary Neville, now a consultant for Sky Sports, the Norwegian could remain in office until the end of the season. « The reason why I see him stay until next summer is the passive with José Mourinho and Louis Van Gaal. They are not going to bring someone back in a hurry, especially since it makes two years that he has been working with this group. He needs a trophy at the end of the season. At any other club he would be in trouble. But because of what happened with Mourinho and Van Gaal, they’re not going to do it now. «
