Antonio Rudiger ‘Fuming With Chelsea Latest Lowball Contract Offer Called It A Slap In The Face



ANTONIO RUDIGER reportedly feels Chelsea’s latest contract offer is a ‘slap in the face’.

Bild claims the defender has been left fuming after the Blues fell short of his wage demands by £60,000-a-week.

Antonio Rudiger has been left unimpressed with Chelsea’s latest contract offer

Rudiger, 28, has been one of Chelsea’s star men since Thomas Tuchel took charge at the start of the year.

He played a key role in last season’s Champions League final triumph over Manchester City.

And Blues fans were hoping his contract renewal would be taken care of promptly to prevent a free transfer next summer.

But Chelsea are now facing the very real prospect of losing Rudiger for nothing after another round of contract talks ended in disappointment.

And Rudiger apparently feels disrespected by the gulf in figures, reportedly describing it as a ‘slap in the face’.

Bayern Munich are known to be circling and are rumoured to be preparing a mega-money offer worth £400k-a-week.

There’s also interest from Real Madrid and Juventus.

And Chelsea are now being linked with a potential replacement in Netherlands ace Matthijs de Ligt.

But despite that, Rudiger is still said to prefer staying at Chelsea and remains hopeful of striking an agreement.

Reflecting on his future at the weekend, Rudiger said: “No [I am not thinking about the future]. I am concentrating on what is imminent.

“I owe that to the club, the coach, and the team. I’ve always said that Chelsea is my number one contact.

“I’m only focused on Chelsea at the moment. We’ll see what happens.
