Antonio Rudiger is set to decide his future ‘in the coming weeks’ as the Chelsea defender approaches the end of his contract at Stamford Bridge.
Rudiger is into the final months of his deal at Chelsea and has so far failed to agree terms on an extension with the West Londoners, though the Germany international has not ruled out remaining at the club.
Chelsea’s ownership situation has complicated matters regarding a new deal and Rudiger has been free to negotiate with foreign sides from January.
Real Madrid remain interested in a deal for the centre-back, whilst both Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus are both ‘pushing’ to secure in a race described as ‘open’ by Fabrizio Romano, while Manchester United have also been linked.
