Antonio Rudiger finally clears the air on Chelsea future

The Blues defender Antonio Rudiger has cleared the air on his future plans amidst his son-to-be-out contract at Stamford bridge.

The Germany international is out of contract at the end of the season and, therefore, can talk to foreign clubs in the new year over a free transfer for next summer’s transfer window.

Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, and Paris Saint-Germain are all reportedly interested in his services.

However, it is likely that Rudiger wants to stay with the Blues. The delay in signing a new contract is that Chelsea’s financial offer is allegedly below his expectations.

About the speculations on his contract, Rudiger told the Guardian: “The most important thing is that I feel happy here,”

“I think if people look at it, they can see I’m happy. About the contract situation, I talk with the club. This is for nobody’s ears. It was how I said it would be after the Euros – there would be talks. There was a talk between Marina [Granovskaia, a Chelsea director] and my agent.”

Rudiger added: “We have the situation where we are at now and I have nothing to do with all the speculation. This is not on my mind.

“I’m focused on what I’m doing because this is why I wake up every morning.”
