Antonio Rudiger ‘rejects £200k-per-week Chelsea deal’
Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has reportedly rejected the Blues’ latest contract offer worth £200k per week.
The 28-year-old now has less than six months left to run on his existing deal with the European champions and has consistently rebuffed the Blues’ attempts to tie him down for longer.
Rudiger has supposedly been left dissatisfied with Chelsea’s previous terms, as the former Roma man seeks a new deal which reflects his role as one of Thomas Tuchel’s regular fixtures.
According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea recently upped their offer to £200k per week, but Rudiger is still holding out for a higher salary to stay at Stamford Bridge.
The report adds that Chelsea still remain hopeful about their chances of keeping Rudiger on the books, but Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain continue to monitor the situation closely.
Rudiger has remained a vital component of Tuchel’s side amid his contract standoff, scoring three goals and setting up four more in 30 appearances across all tournaments this term.
