Free on June 30, Antonio Rüdiger has still not extended with Chelsea and PSG would like to get him back this winter or at the end of the season. And the lines seem to be moving well for the future of the German central defender.
Antonio Rüdiger turned down a nice offer from Chelsea
Under contract until June 2022 with Chelsea, Antonio Rüdiger could go free at the end of the season. If he does not reach an agreement with the Blues by January 1 to renew his lease, the German international will be able to negotiate with the club of his choice. And according to the latest echoes from abroad, the trend is definitely not towards a renewal in this file. Indeed, according to the information of the media ABC, Antonio Rüdiger has rejected a last proposal from his management with a salary of 11 million euros, almost double the 6 million euros annually he receives at the moment.
Arrived in 2017 against a check of 35 million euros, the former central defender of AS Roma wants to offer himself a new challenge away from London and should therefore listen to the different proposals of other clubs. Eager to secure the services of a new defensive player, Paris Saint-Germain is on the lookout for him this winter or next summer. Leonardo, the sporting director of the Parisian club, is even said to have already approached the entourage of Thomas Tuchel’s protégé to confirm his interest. But Paris is far from alone on this occasion.
What future for Antonio Rüdiger?
On the sidelines of the gathering of the German selection, Antonio Rüdiger came out of silence about his future. The former Borussia Dortmund resident has notably bounced back to the interest of Bayern Munich.
“Of course, I am honored and this proves that I do things right. But I’m not distracted. I have an obligation to my club to perform. I have to prove myself in every game and not get distracted by rumors. I make my own decisions. They don’t depend on anyone. I feel good where I am”, confided the Berlin native.
According to the Spanish newspaper ABC, Real Madrid would also like to lure him with a larger salary than the one he currently receives at Chelsea. The competition for Rüdiger’s signature looks tough. The Paris Saint-Germain is therefore warned.
