World Cup winner issues fresh statement amid Chelsea transfer speculation
Antonio Rudiger insists he is only focused on Chelsea and ‘owes’ it to the club to keep performing amid speculation
Rudiger, 28, is out of contract at the end of the season and therefore free to talk to foreign teams from as early as January over a potential move away from Stamford Bridge.
There has been alot of interest in a player that has become a big part of the squad at Stamford Bridge, with the likes of PSG, Juventus and even Barcelona all keeping a very close eye on the developments at Chelsea.
Chelsea have placed Jules Kounde, Matthijs de Ligt and Pau Torres on their transfer wishlist as they prepare for the potential departures of both Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, But the German has recently opened up and admitted that he is happy at the Club
Despite the enormous amount of speculation surrounding him at present, Rudiger says his contract situation is at the very back of his mind and he will continue to give his all for Chelsea.
‘For now I am only concentrating on what is happening right now. I owe that to the club, the coach and the team,’ Rudiger told Welt am Sonntag.
Probed further on whether a return to the Bundesliga was a possibility, Rudiger reiterated: ‘I’m currently only focused on Chelsea. We’ll see what happens.’
Rudiger may not be the best defender in world football, but he is very solid, so letting him go would actually be a massive mistake from Chelsea
They should save a few million and tie him down to a nice new contract guys’
