, Antonio Rudiger ‘happy with Chelsea and Thomas Tuchel’ as Blues refuse to give up on star defender signing new contract

ANTONIO RUDIGER is happy with Chelsea and Thomas Tuchel despite garnering interest from a host of top European clubs, reports say.

The German is believed to be happy at Chelsea and talks are still ongoing over a new contract.

Rudiger has become one of Chelsea’s most important players

Reputable Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that there is no agreement on a salary.

Despite this, Rudiger remains happy at Chelsea and with boss Tuchel.

Romano said on Twitter: “Chelsea are still negotiating with Toni Rudiger agents over new contract.

“Talks ongoing – there’s currently no agreement on salary but it’s not over as Rudiger is so happy with Chelsea and Tuchel.”

Romano went on to confirm interest from European powerhouses Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.

Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann recently heaped praise on Rudiger and admitted he is a big fan.


Nagelsmann praised Tuchel for how he handled Rudiger.

He said: “In principle I am no fan of talking about players who are under contract with other clubs while we are outside the transfer window.

“But I’m talking about Rudiger as a football fan.  He has made fantastic progress.

“Thomas Tuchel has handled him extremely well since taking charge.  He was previously on the scrapheap at Chelsea.

“But now he is one of the most important members of their defence. He has incredibly good fighting spirit, and is a very good defender.

“I always think it’s great when a player lives up to his job description – and that is always the case with Toni.”

And should talks over a new contract with Chelsea stall and the possibility of a move away arise, Rudiger could TRIPLE his wages and pick up a cool £400,000-a-week.

Rudiger accepts that whatever decision he makes, it will be the biggest of his career.

The player told Sky Deutschland: “For me, this will now be the most important decision of my professional career.”
