Real Madrid are favourites to sign Rudiger for a long time.
The story of Chelsea losing its defenders continues with Rudiger. The Blues had a talk with the 28-year-old defender.
Earlier, it’s looked 100% certain that Antonio Rudiger will leave the club for nothing this summer, and the defender has done little to comfort fans on that front, always saying nice things about the club but never saying he’s staying.
But there are now “encouraging talks” between Chelsea and the defender, according to the latest update from the switched on and plugged in Matt Law at the Daily Telegraph.
Real Madrid are favourites to sign the centre back for a long time and seem to have moved on to other plans, meaning Rudiger now may not have a better option on the table than staying put at Chelsea.
Chelsea would love to see the return of at least one out of three players including Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta. The last two players are almost out of the club as they are having discussions with other clubs.
