Top four/five, definitely. Mid table I may give it to Germany. I think the likes of Schalke, Leverkusen and Gladbach are better than Bournemouth, Southampton, etc. Bottom of the table is hard to say. 

point still stands

Some players prefer a certain league but Chelsea is a no-brained upgrade for Christiansen. Even not playing every match, Christiansen is potentially an important piece of a great back line. I remember him discussing liking Gladbach a lot but he's in a position to move to one of the biggest clubs in the world and playing a massive role in years to come. I can't see many players not wanting that opportunity.

Some may disagree with this statement but it doesn't matter whether they do or not. The important question is how Andreas looks at this. I'd say the chances must be high that he prefers the Bundesliga, and Germany in general for that matter. BVB would not be so persistent in their desire to keep him unless they know that he wants to stay. 

Germany is where Andreas experienced the breakout moments of his life, that is where he has taken his first steps to manhood. I don't know if he was in a relationship when he left England but he almost certainly is in one now, and his partner could very well be German. In addition to the fact that he knows he can start at Dortmund, there must be lots of other reasons for Andreas to feel an attachment to BVB.

Ain't nothing money and playing for a EPl champion can't solve, just ask Courtois ;)

IF we do sell him to Gladbach please for the love of god add in a Buy Back Clause. If a buy back is in the contract then i am fine with him moving there and continuing to develop. 

He isn't going to Gladbach. He is staying with us. Dahoud is also leaving Gladbach for BVB.

Gladbach twitter has tweeted numerous times that he's coming back, hope the club give him an important role next season. He needs to really impress Conte this preseason.

After his second season on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach, Andreas Christensen is currently on international duty with the Danish national team, for whom he has been a first-choice center back for some time now. International duty involves plenty of media duty as well, and while talking with Danish reporters, Christensen confirmed that plans are in place for him to at least start the pre-season at Chelsea.

“I will join up with Chelsea on July 7th. I haven’t talked to Conte yet. I have talked to the sporting director and all those responsible for getting the players set up with a flat and what else belongs to them. The sports director says the plan is that I meet like all the others and go through the preseason,”

Basically, Christensen has confirmed what we’ve known for some time now. That is, he will start pre-season at Chelsea and look to impress Antonio Conte enough to earn a permanent first-team place for the upcoming season. With any sort of deal for Virgil van Dijk having fallen apart in recent weeks, one cannot help but think that Christensen will at least be thoroughly considered to bolster our defensive ranks.

Exciting times lie ahead, which could possibly see one academy defender replace another in John Terry.

Why do people keep comparing stats of players that play in a back 2 with our back 3? 

Christensen has played in a back 3, no?

BMG have played with a back three but it's not something that's a staple of their system. The stats will mostly come from him playing in a back 2 is my point, which will naturally make him look more busy than our CBs.

Sure. We will still play 343 but for a manager like Conte it's counter productive to just have one solid system.
