Chelsea To Extend Antonio Rudiger Contract (See Details)
Thomas Tuchel wants Chelsea to offer Antonio Rudiger a new deal which will see him remain with the club beyond 2022, MySportDab reports.
The Blues defender has been playing week in and out since the German man took charge from Frank Lampard.
The German wasn’t used as Kurt Zouma and Thiago Silva played more often, but things seems to be in the favor of the ex Roma player.
Antonio Rudiger is set for a new Chelsea contract as Thomas Tuchel is eager to let him remain with the club beyond his current deal.
The defender will be in action tomorrow against Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League as they look to defender their 1-0 advantage.
Chelsea will try to sign Antonio Rudiger to a contract extension before the summer to avoid the risk of him leaving on a free transfer in 2022.
With the Daily Mail reporting manager Thomas Tuchel is a driving force in getting a deal done as soon as possible.
Tuchel has needed the German centre-back to perform at a high level with Thiago Silva injured.
And the 28-year-old has rewarded his boss with steady play at the back over the past month with solid back to back performances.
Things have been good so far with the partnership of Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen.
