Chelsea are on the verge of losing Antonio Rudiger not just because of the Sanctions placed on them by UK Government which prevented them from negotiating any deal with Players.
Chelsea’s inability to step up and be proactive is also a reason why they are parting ways with the German Defender who has been a consistent figure under Thomas Tuchel’s reign at Chelsea.
Antonio Rudiger has always made his wants known. Since the beginning of this season that Chelsea has been trying to get the German Defender to renew his contract, Antonio Rudiger made it known that it’s going to require a lot of money to renew his commitment to Chelsea.
He was earning £100,000 every week and wants his wages to match that of Chelsea’s top earners. Chelsea’s first offer was around £150,000 but he rejected it.
The Blues’ last offer was £230,000 which will make Antonio Rudiger the most paid Defender in Chelsea’s History if he had accepted it but, he also turned it down. Chelsea didn’t have any other Chance to table an improved bid to the Germany International before the Sanctions were imposed.
From being an underpaid Defender in EPL, Antonio Rudiger is about to become one of the highest earning Defenders in Europe.
Real Madrid’s offer to Antonio Rudiger includes a 4-year-contract with a weekly wage of £400,000. You have got to ask yourself how a Player goes from £100,000 per week to £400,000 every week. He’s literally going to be making quadruple of what Chelsea is currently paying him at Real Madrid next season.
Just in January last year, Antonio Rudiger was an outcast at Chelsea. He wasn’t getting playing time and he was already seeking for an exit.
Thomas Tuchel came in, handed him an opportunity and the German Defender grabbed it. He upped his game from being an ordinary defender to become an enforcer and a Player that doesn’t afraid to play dirty.
Antonio Rudiger could have signed a contract that will see him getting more than £400,000 if he wanted but he chose not to. Manchester United reportedly wanted to sign him and the Red Devils gave him the most expensive offer but, he overlooked it by choosing Real Madrid
