Chelsea centre-back Andreas Christensen has told manager Maurizio Sarri that he is not happy at Stamford Bridge but he is unlikely to leave the club next month.
The Danish international was the first choice defender last season, while David Luiz was out of favour under Antonio Conte.

But new Blues manager Sarri is favouring David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger this season, with Christiensen, has instead been limited to the Europa League and Carabao Cup duties.
But Sky Sports journalist Dharmesh Sheth has revealed that the 22-year-old has approached his manager and told him that he’s not happy at the club due to his pitch time limit.
He said on the Transfer Talk podcast: “Andreas Christensen was a regular under Antonio Conte. Remember Conte kind of froze out David Luiz and brought Christensen in.”
“Now it’s flipped. David Luiz seems to be a flavour of the month as far as Sarri is concerned and Christensen isn’t getting a game.”
“He’s obviously not happy and he’s made it clear that he’s not happy – but he doesn’t expect Chelsea to sell him this month.”

When asked who might leave the club in the new year, Sheth replied: “Danny Drinkwater, remember him?”
“He’s still at Chelsea believe it or not. He hasn’t played since the Community Shield, though.”
