Chelsea defenders Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen and Thiago Silva are nearing the end of their contract with Chelsea.

Thiago Silva who who only signed for the club last summer, signed a one year deal with the option of a year’s extension. Christensen and Rudiger will see their contract run out in the summer of 2022.

All three defenders have done well under Thomas Tuchel and are in good form, and the Blues boss has admitted that at the right time, contract talks will resume.

“This is maybe the worst moment to talk about contracts, one day before a big match,” Tuchel said.

“Of course, everybody knows about the situation of these three players.

“All of them have performed at a high level so from there we will take the decisions in the club and we will communicate when the decisions are taken.

“Thiago is missing now since many weeks unfortunately, which is too long because we miss him a lot, but Andreas and Toni did fantastic jobs so far. We have to keep on going like this and the rest will be resolved.”
