Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has admitted Bayern Munich’s interest in him is flattering, but he claims he still feels good with the Blues and it suits him. The Germany international has less than a year left on his contract and will be free to talk to other clubs from January.
Bayern Munich are among a host of top European clubs that have shown interest in Antonio Rudiger this summer, especially as his contract expires. But talks are underway between Chelsea and Rudiger over a contract extension, although the London club remains wary of the German’s demands. The 28-year-old is reportedly happy to stay at the London club as long as his contract demands are met, as he reportedly believes this is his last chance to secure a big-money contract within his playing career.
Rudiger has made 159 appearances for the Blues and has scored eight goals in all competitions since moving to Roma. The Germany international has so far helped the club win one FA Cup, one Europa League and a Champions League during his stint with the Premier League side. The 28-year-old will be allowed to talk to other clubs about a pre-contract from January but insists he is not thinking about his next move, although he revealed he was honored by the Bundesliga champion’s interest in him.
“Of course, I’m honored by [Bayern’s interest] and it proves that I’ve done things right. But I’m not distracted. I have an obligation to my club to perform well. I have to prove myself in every game and not be distracted by rumours. I feel good at Chelsea where I am now, so that suits me,” Rüdiger said at a press conference.
