A shock report by Fichajes means that Chelsea can be keen to simply accept presents of simply €20m for star defender Antonio Rudiger.
Rudiger was frozen out at Chelsea with Frank Lampard on the helm, however Thomas Tuchel’s determination to start out him in his first sport as supervisor of the Blues signalled an opportunity in fortunes for the German.
The previous AS Roma centre-back has scarcely put a foot improper since then, starring in Chelsea’s Champions League triumph and nailing down that left-centre-back place in Tuchel’s again three.
Sadly, his contract is because of expire subsequent summer season and in current days there was some critical doubt casted over the chance of him penning an extension to that deal.

Chelsea have a call to make. Both danger dropping one among their star gamers on a free, whereas making an attempt to persuade him to remain, or cash-in when the January switch window comes round.
Surprisingly, and we’ll take this with a pinch of salt, Fichajes report that Chelsea can be keen to do the latter in the event that they had been to obtain a proposal within the area of €20m [£17m].
That appears extremely low-cost for a participant who has been among the finest defenders on the planet this calendar 12 months, no matter his contract scenario or age (Rudiger is 29-years-old).
You think about Tuchel would reasonably have Rudiger at his disposal for the second-half of the season than lose him for a determine that will make nearly no distinction to his switch finances.
