Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger Is Set To Sign A 4 Years Deal With Juventus
Chelsea’s defender becomes a free agent in June when his current deal expires.
Chelsea have tried and failed to convince Rudiger to sign an extension for much of the season.
After Roman Abramovich’s assets were frozen and sanctions placed on the club prevented them from negotiating new contracts, hope of keeping him have pretty much evaporated.
Manchester United, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich were all monitoring the situation.
However, a fresh report has claimed that Rudiger’s future is now sorted.
La Gazzetta dello Sport states that the star has said “yes” to a move to the Bianconeri.
He will sign a four-year deal with the Serie A giants as he prefers a move there over Madrid and Bayern.
£5.4 million is offered to Rudiger per season in Italy.
Rudiger has been one of Europe and the world’s best since Thomas Tuchel arrived at Chelsea.
Rudiger played a key part in their Champions League success and also helped them to lift the Club World Cup last month.
The Blues have a number of deals expiring this summer, including defenders Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta.
