According to The Athletic, Antonio Rudiger will delay contract talks with Chelsea until after this summer’s European Championships.
The German international has become a key player for the Blues since Thomas Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard as Chelsea boss.
Rudiger has featured in all but one of Chelsea’s matches since the arrival of the former Borussia Dortmund and PSG boss.
The Blues are keen on extending the contract of the German international as his current deal expires in the summer of 2022.
The Athletic also claim Rudiger’s decision to delay contract talks with the club until the summer has nothing to do with the possible arrival of a defender in the summer.
