Antonio Rudiger has finally addressed rumours surrounding his future.
The German defender will be out of contract next summer and is yet to extend his contract with Chelsea.
He has become a crucial member of Tuchel’s XI and enjoyed a brillaint start to the new Premier League season.
“Of course [Bayern’s interest] honours me and proves that I’ve been doing things right,’ Rudiger told the media.
“But I don’t let myself be distracted. I have an obligation to my club to perform well. I have to prove myself every game and not let myself be distracted by rumours.
“I make my decisions for myself. They don’t depend on anyone. I feel good where I am.”
Last month Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann has expressed his admiration for the German defender.
“I’m talking about him now as a football fan because he is a German senior international. He has made a super development.
“Thomas [Tuchel] has handled him extremely well – he was still on the sidelines at Chelsea a year ago and is now certainly one of their most decisive players.
“He has incredibly good aggression and is a very good defender. I haven’t spoken to Brazzo [Hasan Salihamidzic – Bayern Munich sporting director] about it and if I did, I wouldn’t tell you either!
“I just read that in the media as well. I’ll have to see when the contract expires and then I’ll see if I still have money in my wallet!”
