Rudiger‘s contract will be up by June 2022 and with no time in hand top clubs are holding their breath and closely monitoring his movement which includes the likes of Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, PSG, Bayern Munich, Machester United, etc. but his priority is to stay at Chelsea and a pay hike.
Rudiger currently earns around £90,000 a week and looking at his vital contributions for Chelsea over the year, the number is unjustifiably low. In February, Chelsea reached an agreement for £200,000 a week with Rudiger but his decision to put Chelsea up for sale exhausted those talks.
With Chelsea’s ownership on thin ice, it seems difficult for the board to come up with a conclusion for Rudiger’s demands. Christensen seems set to join Barcelona followed by club captain Azpilicueta who has extended his stay by a year.
It’s very unlikely for them to push for transfers as they want to leave the club on good terms. With the arrival of Ten Hag to Manchester United, he wants Antonio Rudiger to bolster the red devil’s defense.
New Destination for Rudiger
Man Utd are a feasible club for Rudiger in terms of wages, in terms of footballing narrative.
Man Utd are a big club but they most probably are out of champion league game time next season. But the likes of Rudiger leaving Chelsea and joining another premier league club is highly unlikely. Looking at Rudiger’s time at Chelsea there hasn’t been a single incident pointing out his desire to leave.
The likes of Real Madrid are also a viable option. A new challenge in Spain with guaranteed Champions League and first-team start. This season they’re even going to win La Liga (10 points needed in 6 games).
A similar offer from PSG is also considerable who’ll double down on his current salary demands. Guaranteed champions league game time but with no assurance of first-team football in a crowded squad. Sadly it is still the point in time where the only real Chelsea news is about players potentially leaving.
