According to Goal, Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger could secure a move to Paris Saint-Germain or Real Madrid at the conclusion of his contract, after he snubbed both Tottenham and West Ham during the summer. 

The Blues are hoping to resolve the German international’s contract situation, which expires at the end of the season. 

Rudiger, 28, had been previously on Spurs’ radar when he was at Serie A side Roma, but made the move to Stamford Bridge instead in 2017. 

Spurs, accompanied by West Ham, both tried their hands at signing the centre half last summer when he had fallen down the Chelsea pecking order under Frank Lampard, but decided to fight for his place in west London. 

But with Rudiger remaining at Chelsea again for this season and his contract up in the summer, Goal report he could secure a move to giants PSG or Real Madrid, which would include a large pay-day. 

The report claims Rudiger sees this as one of his final opportunities to ensure his financial security, and those two clubs could meet his desired figure. 

If either club continue to keep tabs on the German, he could begin to facilitate a move in January, where he would be free to sign a pre-contract agreement. 

Spurs Web Opinion 

Spurs have shown a keen interest in Rudiger before, and particularly when Jose Mourinho was at the club last season. It doesn’t seem likely that a move will happen considering he is keen to secure a hefty wage packet as he approaches what is likely to be his final handful of years at the top level of European football.
