The contract of Antonio Rudiger at Chelsea expires at the end of the season, and there has been plenty of speculation about his future amid reports that the talks of a new deal have hit an impasse. Apparently, the club haven’t been willing to meet his wage demands as of yet. Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have all been credited with interest and are believed to be keeping an eye on the situation. However, the defender himself says he hasn’t spoken to any club other than Chelsea so far.
Speaking to Sky in Germany (via Fabrizio Romano), the 28-year-old said he felt this was to be the most important decision he’s ever had to make in his career, implying that it would not be made lightly.
Rudiger has been of immense importance to Chelsea’s resurgence under Thomas Tuchel and their Champions League glory last term, and Tuchel still believes the problems will be resolved before it’s too late. The Germany international will be allowed to talk to clubs outside England from January 1st unless he signs a new contract before that.
