Antonio Rudiger, a Chelsea midfielder, has received a massive offer from PSG, but he prefers to pursue other options.
Antonio Rudiger, a defender for Chelsea, is expected to leave the club this summer.
Antonio Rudiger, a Chelsea midfielder, has reportedly been offered a staggering £5.85 million annual salary to leave Stamford Bridge this summer and join Paris Saint-Germain.
However, it is reported that the defender would prefer to join Real Madrid.
Rudiger’s future at Chelsea is still uncertain, and he continues to pique the interest of a slew of European giants.
Since Thomas Tuchel took over in west London a little over a year ago, the Germany international has been one of the best defenders in the Premier League.
However, the player has yet to sign a new contract.
Overseas clubs are now allowed to negotiate with Rudiger, and according to Foot Mercato, PSG’s generous offer is higher than Real’s.
However, the wages alone may not be sufficient to persuade the 28-year-old to choose France over Spain.
Meanwhile, Rudiger’s agent is reportedly in talks with Bayern Munich and Juventus, and Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick is a fan.
Rudiger joined Chelsea from Roma in 2017 for £29 million.
Under Antonio Conte and his successor, Maurizio Sarri, he was a regular, and he also started for Frank Lampard at one point.
But he fell out of favor during Lampard’s second season in charge, only to be reintroduced when Tuchel took over from the former England midfielder.
Tuchel’s guidance has transformed Rudiger, who didn’t miss a minute of Champions League action after his compatriot was appointed last season.
Chelsea’s European success last season, when they won the trophy for the second time in club history, was largely due to the defender’s outstanding performances.
Despite the Blues’ recent resurgence, the ace has continued to shine this season.
Rudiger’s decision to leave Stamford Bridge later this year would be a huge blow to the club.
Tuchel also recently stated that contract talks were in good hands.
Tuchel stated, “We’re in talks.”
“It’s in good hands because I have complete faith in the club and in my player.”
“So for me, and obviously for Toni, it’s a no-problem situation.”
He still has it in him to deliver.
