Bayern Have ‘Contacted’ The ‘Agent And Brother’ Of Chelsea Star Amid Ongoing Contract Dispute

Bayern Munich have “contacted” Antonio Rudiger’s brother and agent Sahr Senesie to register their interest in the Chelsea centre-back, according to Bild journalist Christian Falk.

The 28-year-old’s contract expires at the end of the season, and there is reportedly a sizeable difference between the player’s wage demands and what the Blues are prepared to offer him. However, Falk still feels an agreement over a new deal is more likely than the centre-back joining Bayern:

Last week, Falk claimed that Rudiger was asking to be paid around €11m a season before tax, which translates to approximately £182,000 a week based on the current exchange rate; a sizeable but not unreasonable salary rise, considering his importance to manager Thomas Tuchel.

It does seem as though there is now more optimism that a deal can be struck, but there are a fair few teams circling waiting to see what happens. Along with Bayern, it is believed the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Juventus and Tottenham are all keen on snapping Rudiger up on a free transfer next year.
