Antonio Rudiger was close to an exit from the club under former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard. His value dropped under Lampard as he sought an exit from the club due to lack of playing time.
However, Rudiger has become a man in form under Thomas Tuchel and his value has massively increased.
Rudiger has one year left on his contract with Chelsea, and talks have so far not been progressive.
According to Eurosport, Rudiger and his representatives want Chelsea to add £60,000 to his current £140,000-per-week package.
According to the report, previous talks were held in March, and the 28-year-old demanded for a £20,000 weekly pay rise.
With Rudiger’s current form and value, the club may just have to meet his demands or risk losing him.
He seems the best or probably only candidate suited for the left center back role in the three-man defence. Rudiger was superb in the second half of last season.
