Chelsea are getting close to reaching an agreement to extend Antonio Rudiger contract with them, MySportDab reports.
There is some positivity for the Blues that an agreement can be reached for the defender who PSG and Real Madrid are still hopeful of signing.
Chelsea have reportedly made another new offer closer to what Antonio Rudiger is demanding to get for him to extend his stay beyond the season.
They have offered closer to Antonio Rudiger’s £200,000-a-week wage demands in another bid to keep him as they are doing everything not to lose all their defenders this season.
Bayern Munich have already ended their pursuit of the defender with them not willing to go any higher in wages for the German.
Antonio Rudiger is yet to agree terms with the Blues, while Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are still strongly interested in making a move if he drops to free agent.
They will be hoping to get something good while they are able to offer a large signing-on fee as well as competitive salary packages if things go their way.
Although the Blues are already working on potential backup plan in case things didn’t go as planned with extending contracts of their defenders.
Barcelona Ronald Araujo is another name being drawn up alongside Pau Torres and Jules Kounde who almost joined from Sevilla in the summer of 2021.
Chelsea lost out on Niklas Sule who already reached an agreement to join Borussia Dortmund when the season comes to an end.
The likes of Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta are hoping they get a new contract too, but they also have Barcelona who want to sign both of them.
Thiago Silva already extended his contract which is just leaving Antonio Rudiger and two others yet to get a new deal with few months left for them to make that happen.
