Uruguayan Star Who “Loved Watching Chelsea As A Kid” Is The Perfect Replacement For Antonio Rudiger.

Antonio Rudiger has continued to play hard ball with Chelsea regarding his contract renewal issue at the club. Rudiger rejected Chelsea’s initial offer and reports suggest the German wants a better offer.

Rudiger has since maintained that he will be keeping his options open as he will assess his options before signing any deal.

Many clubs have been linked with signing the Chelsea defender including Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. If Rudiger leaves Chelsea next summer, Uruguayan defender who once claimed he loved watching Chelsea as a kid, is the perfect man to replace him.

It is possible that Antonio Rudiger leaves Chelsea next summer, and that will mean the club has to sign a Replacement and Atletico Madrid’s Gimenez is the best replacement for Chelsea.

The Uruguayan defender is a very rugged and calculated defender just like Antonio Rudiger. When Frank Lampard was still the coach of Chelsea, the blues were linked with him and he expressed how much he used to love watching Chelsea when he was young.

The Atletico defender even liked a social media post linking him with a move to Stamford Bridge. Maria Gimenez is a very good defender and at age 26, he is just approaching his prime. Gimenez also possesses a very good leadership spirit.

The Uruguayan has a lot of experience at the top level. He has played in top quality match and would be the right fit for the Chelsea defense.


Maria Gimenez is currently worth €60M according to Transfermarkt, and that will be a very good investment for Chelsea.

Gimenez’s previous claims shows that he is a player that likes Chelsea. Players who like the club are very easy to convince to sign for the club.
