In the midst of Chelsea’s uncertainties, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are ‘ready to meet’ Rudiger’s demands.
Antonio Rudiger’s Chelsea contract expires in less than a year.
Chelsea clinched the Premier League title this weekend with a 3-1 win over Southampton and a 1-1 tie between Liverpool and Manchester City. Thomas Tuchel’s team won all three points thanks to two late goals, but subsequent disclosures may have marred an otherwise brilliant few days.
In what was a pretty unremarkable first 45 minutes, academy graduate Trevoh Chalobah opened the scoring with a diving header at the back post, his second goal of the season.
After a foul by Ben Chilwell on Tino Livramento, who departed the Blues last summer, right inside the area, the Saints equalized in the 61st minute when James Ward-Prowse sent Edouard Mendy the wrong way from the penalty spot.
Following a VAR review, Ward-Prowse was sent out for a late lunge on Jorginho, and he turned from hero to villain in only six minutes.
Timo Werner put the Blues back in front in the 84th minute with a well-worked goal, before Ben Chilwell sealed the win five minutes later with a thunderous volley.
However, the revelation that one of Chelsea’s key players, Antonio Rudiger, is being courted by hefty offers that could lead to his departure may dampen emotions.
The German defender’s contract at Stamford Bridge expires in less than a year, and it has been widely reported that he is having difficulty negotiating an extension due to his increased wage demands.
However, according to The Athletic, both Bayern Munich and Real Madrid are willing to pay whatever it takes to secure the 28-year-signing. old’s
Rudiger is the only Chelsea player to have played every minute of Premier League football so far this season, which explains why the club is keen to keep him.
The story goes on to say that the former Roma player wants to stay in west London, but that if Roman Abramovich is unable to pay a sufficient salary, Tuchel will be forced to look for a replacement next summer.
Tuchel, the former PSG manager, stated last month that he would like to keep Rudiger in his squad after multiple impressive performances. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
