Chelsea Board told German has made transfer decision amidst contract talks
Antonio Rudiger will not sign a new deal at Chelsea – no matter how much the club offer him, talkSPORT understands.
Rudiger has been a standout performer for Chelsea this season and one of the clubs most important players, but he could leave the club at the end of the season as his contract expires.
It is no secret that his preference would be to stay, but there has been a number of top clubs show an interest in getting a possible deal done at the end of the season, which has left many Chelsea fans shocked at the fact he could leave
Now talkSPORT transfer inside Alex Crook has now provided an update which doesn’t make great reading for Blues fans. Asked if he could stay, Crook responded: “I don’t think so, Jim.
“We know his advisors have been in talks with the likes of Real Madrid and PSG.
“I was told several weeks ago that it didn’t matter how much money Chelsea threw at him, his heart was set on a move to Real Madrid.
“We’ve seen numerous high profile examples – maybe Cristiano Ronaldo the highest of them all – of when a big club like Real Madrid come in for you it’s very difficult to keep them out of their clutches.”
Rudiger is one of the very best defenders in the game and Chelsea would be massive fools to let him leave, we have said that before and will again. So Fans will be hoping that the board manage to get a contract deal done sooner rather than later as there are a number of top clubs eyeing up a potential deal.
As we said, he is one of the best defenders in the game and Chelsea would be fools to let him leave, especially on a free deal.
