Chelsea refuse Antonio Rudiger deal extension terms

Chelsea & Antonio Rudiger deql transfer extension may not happen as the French defender may leave on free transfer next summer as they refuse to meet his demands over new contract according to ESPN.

Sources have told ESPN Rudiger wants to double his £100,000-a-week wage to sign what would likely be the last big deal of his career.
Chelsea have so far only indicated they are willing to offer around £150,000-a-week and the impasse has alerted the interest of several top European clubs.

The financial impact of COVID-19 has limited the transfer power of many top sides and so the prospect of a Champions League winning centre-back in the peak years of his career being available for nothing will likely attract Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Juventus — all of whom have previously expressed an interest in Rudiger.

He will be free to talk to overseas clubs directly from Jan. 1. Rudiger also previously said he discussed a move to London rivals Tottenham Hotspur last summer when Jose Mourinho was in charge.

Sources told ESPN Rudiger’s preference is to stay in west London but Chelsea have previously taken a firm stance with players in similar positions, refusing to accept Willian’s request for a longer contract than the club originally offered before allowing him to join Arsenal on a free last year.
