Antonio Rudiger calls Romelu Lukaku a monster
Chelsea’s board of directors is having a lot of headaches when Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta are all out of contracts next summer, and there is no sign of them extending. The duo Christensen and Azpilicueta have both received offers from Barcelona, likely to join the Catalunya team.
In Rudiger’s case, the two sides have long failed to reach a consensus on a new agreement, because the Blues did not meet the income level requested by the German international. According to Sky Sports, there have been no further talks between Rudiger and Chelsea for more than a month.
It is reported that Rudiger’s agent is in constant talks with Real Madrid and PSG , but no official offers have yet been made. The 28-year-old star only determines the future based on sports projects. However, he did not rush to make a decision before the 2021/22 campaign ended, because Rudiger respects Chelsea and does not want the club to be distracted.
Besides, the German midfielder wants to consider all the options he has – including the possibility of staying in the Premier League. The signing of a new contract with Chelsea is not ruled out. Man Utd voiced their desire to have Rudiger’s service, when Ralf Rangnick admired the talent of the 28-year-old star.
