Clubs monitoring Rudiger after difficulties in contract extension

Chelsea are being ‘made to sweat’ over the future of Antonio Rüdiger, with the defender stalling over the club’s offer of a new £140,000-a-week contract. The impasse has alerted Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Juventus, who can all start talking to Rüdiger in January when his Chelsea contract will have only six months remaining. There is currently little sign of Chelsea reaching a breakthrough with Rüdiger before then, as their offer, worth around £140,000 a week, falls short of his expectations.

Chelsea have opened talks with Antonio Rüdiger over a new contract but remain cautious over his demands, with both Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid keeping an eye on the situation. The two European giants will be able to sign the Germany international in January on a pre-contract agreement, with the defender's current deal expiring in the summer of 2022. The 28-year-old would be happy to stay put in West London as long as his contract demands are met, with Rüdiger believing this will likely be the last big-money deal of his career.[ Nizaar Kinsella - Goal ]

If Chelsea want to extend Antonio Rüdiger’s contract, the club will have to double his current salary, which currently sits at €5.5M-a-year. Sevilla centre-back had an offer from Chelsea for a salary of €4.5M net. [ CFBayern ]
