Rudiger on Bayern radar

Bayern Munich have joined the race to sign Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger, according to Bild.

The centre-back has been with the Blues for the past five years, but he could leave on a free transfer next summer.

He has entered the final year of his contract, and there has been no progress over a renewal due to salary differences.

Rudiger wants around £200,000-a-week to extend his stay, but the Blues are refusing to offer him more than £150,000.

It is now reported that German champions have made contact with Rudiger’s brother, who also happens to be his agent.

They are keen on negotiating a pre-contract at the turn of the year, but the German is still eyeing a new Blues deal.

Fresh talks are planned next month, and the meeting could decide whether Rudiger stays or pursues a fresh challenge.

The 28-year-old is garnering plenty of interest. Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are also keen.
