Antonio Rudiger 'Rejects Lucrative Chelsea Contract Offer' Amid Transfer Speculation

Chelsea centre-back Antonio Rudiger has rejected a new contract offer from the Blues and intends to leave the club in January, according to sensational reports.

Since Thomas Tuchel’s arrival at Stamford Bridge, Rudiger has been given a new lease of life - affirming himself as one of the best defenders in world football right now.

On the face of it, the German has no reason to leave the club, but with his contract due to expire next summer, the 28-year-old is well within his rights to consider his options.

Interestingly, according to a report by Todo Fichajes, Rudiger has done exactly that, coming to the decision to take the next step in his career.

The report claims that Chelsea tabled a contract offer for Rudiger to consider, but has since rejected it - stating his intentions to move on from west London.

The star has an overall rating of 83, boasting an 84-rated physical and defence statistics, but EA have given him a pace of 75 in the latest instalment - despite Rudiger showcasing his electric pace already this season.

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.

With the months ticking down towards the end of his contract, it is believed that Chelsea could revive their interest in Sevilla defender Jules Kounde.

As was reported by the Guardian at the end of last month, Chelsea attempted to get the Frenchmen through the door over the summer, but failed in their pursuit.

Chelsea fans will wait for a more reputable source to report this information before giving up all hope of Rudiger sticking around, however, the signs are not positive.
