Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger is being pursued by no less than six clubs with the German international’s contract currently set to expire in June, according to 90min.com.
Paris Saint-Germain are believed to be leading the way for the centre-back’s signature, whilst the likes of Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus and Tottenham are also involved in the battle to secure his services.
It has been suggested by Eurosport that Rudiger is demanding £200,000 a week to stay at Stamford Bridge; a sizeable increase on the £130,000 a week he is currently earning.
With the Blues unwilling to give the German such a pay rise, the centre-half has decided to wait and see what other options are available to him.
Manager Thomas Tuchel has asked Chelsea to prioritise negotiations for Rudiger, as he really doesn’t want to lose a key player, but there is now a growing possibility that the defender will leave on a free transfer next year.
