The German is linked to a move to Bayern Munich with the German outfits hoping to materialize a move
Rudiger is yet to extend his Chelsea contract and could possibly leave the club should they fail to reach an agreement despite the defender’s impressive stats.
Having put out some pretty performances for the Blues, Rudiger has come to become one of the most wanted defenders in Europe.
With already the Champions League and Super Cup among his list of achievements with Chelsea, leaving the club now may not be a bad idea for Rudiger.
Especially when this offer is from another top tier club as Bayern Munich who are even currently considered favorites for both the German Bundesliga and the UEFA Champions League.
Rudiger has entered the final year of his contract and is able to sign a pre-contract agreement with clubs outside England from January ahead of a free transfer next summer.
Reports this week suggested sides around Europe were preparing to make a move for the Germany international after talks between him and Chelsea were said to have stalled.
Rudiger’s fortunes have taken a huge turn in the last 12 months, having been set to leave Chelsea on loan last January after falling out of favour under Frank Lampard.
However, the 28-year-old opted to stay and quickly found himself back in the side when his countryman Tuchel replaced Lampard at the end of that month.
Rudiger has since missed just five of Tuchel’s 36 matches in charge, establishing himself as a key player and playing every minute of Chelsea’s run through the knockout stages to win the Champions League in May.
But with an interest from Bayern Munich lately, Rudiger has voiced his feelings saying; “The interest honors me. That shows that I have done a few things right recently.”
“I feel good where I am now. so that fits,” he added.
