Juve join race for out of contract Chelsea defender

Juventus have started talks with the representatives of Antonio Rüdiger, who’s contract expires this summer, according to Sky Sports. The Chelsea defender is a wanted man, because Real Madrid, PSG and Bayern Munich are chasing him too. These clubs, like Juventus, have also started talks with Rüdiger’s entourage.

Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick is a fan of the German defender too and knows his brother (who’s his agent as well), so the English club shouldn’t be written off yet either. Rüdiger could also stay at Chelsea, but the Blues latest offer, that dates back to the start of the season, was rejected by the German.


Rüdiger has been vital for Chelsea this season, playing 26 games in which he scored 2 goals and gave 4 assists. He also played 90 minutes in Chelsea’s 4-0 win over Juventus in the Champions League.

The 28 year old defender is no stranger to Italy. Rüdiger played 72 matches for AS Roma from 2015 until 2017.
