Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger wanted by biggest European clubs

By on 28th September 2021

Since Thomas Tuchel’s arrival at Chelsea in January, the Blues have managed to benefit in a number of different ways.

Although club legend Frank Lampard was replaced, the German arrived and turned the club into a dominant force within world football and, arguably, put them back on the football map as one of the most feared sides to currently be in the sport.

Of course, his crowning achievement at Stamford Bridge so far was to build on the work that the former boss managed to achieve in the UEFA Champions League and take them all the way to the final before beating Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in Portugal. A crowning achievement for bettors is when they stumble across, though, as the site provides them with a number of excellent games to play!

Tuchel has continued to work his magic as he has helped the club land the UEFA Super Cup and appears to have given players who needed confidence the lift that they have needed to reach the levels that they should be at.

Spanish duo Marcos Alonso and Kepa Arrizabalaga are just two of the names to have benefitted, whilst his compatriot, Antonio Rudiger, has arguably benefitted the most since the manager has come in.

The German centre-back had started his Chelsea career well, but things went a little south and the addition of Thiago Silva and the continued emergence of Andreas Christensen may have made his place at Stamford Bridge under threat.

However, despite the fact that Lampard had seemingly wanted the German gone, Tuchel’s arrival has led to a rejuvenation of sorts for the defender, which has led to calls for him being one of the best in the Premier League currently.

Unfortunately for the Blues, interest has also been attracted by other big European clubs, with reports suggesting that there are many who are ready to make Rudiger a pre-contract offer in January in order to tempt him to leave west London in the summer once his current deal expires.

There have been talks about a new deal and whilst Tuchel seems relatively relaxed and calm about the situation, there will be some who are not quite as comfortable about the situation.

It will be interesting to see what happens in the future, but many would suggest that there are very few places that Rudiger can go that would be considered to be better than where he is now, but football is a funny game and anything can happen, so it would be wrong to dismiss any speculation at the moment and think he will remain at Chelsea for the foreseeable future.
