According to Manchester Evening News, Man City paying attention to Antonio Rudiger and Chelsea’s situation over his contract. Rudiger’s contract will be expiring in June 2022 and many clubs are interested in acquiring the German’s signature. Other big clubs like Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Tottenham Hotspur are also interested.

The 28-year-old is free to sign a pre-contract with another club as he has entered the last six months of his contract. Rudiger is a great addition to any club and can be signed as a free agent. This is the best situation for any club pursuing Rudiger as he will be normally expensive when he is under contract.

Moreover, Rudiger and Chelsea are not able to reach agreeable terms to sign an extension. This has attracted more attention towards the situation and Manchester City have also kept their tabs open for Rudiger. City will look forward to strengthening their defense with Rudiger.

Antonio Rudiger has made 32 appearances for Chelsea and is undroppable for Tuchel. The injury crisis at Chelsea has helped him become more important for Chelsea and get more game time. That has led to more interest from other clubs and also because of his delayed contract extensions talks.

What can Antonio Rudiger help Man City with?

Antonio Rudiger is physically at the top of his game and capable of doing most of his tasks. He will also be available as a free transfer, which is a huge advantage. If the contract had a few more years left on it, he would have a higher market value. Furthermore, Rudiger is dissatisfied with Chelsea’s contract renewal offers.

Many clubs are currently suffering from a lack of depth or players who are underperforming. Rudiger, on the other hand, appears to be at ease in the back, and his contractual arrangement has attracted some clients. He makes 1.2 tackles and 1.9 clearances per game in all competitions. Moreover, he attempts 4.5 long balls per game and has a pass success rate of 88.2% (stats via whoscored).

Chelsea will attempt to keep him at the club for another few years. The Blues are dealing with a similar situation with Andreas Christensen and would not want to lose two center-backs in the same window. Furthermore, they are currently dealing with an injury problem, and Rudiger has remained at their side throughout. He was also instrumental in Chelsea’s Champions League final against Manchester City.

Manchester City might lose a defensive player in the summer as their players have also attracted heavy interest. Therefore, they need to get back up players in case a defender leaves. However, Chelsea might try to renew his contract to get his services for a longer period of time.
