Newcastle United join the race to sign Antonio Rudiger

Antonio Rudiger - Chelsea FC

Newcastle United are in the race to sign Chelsea star defender Antonio Rudiger.

Antonio Rudiger’s contract runs out this summer and Chelsea are trying to renew it, but it seems both parties are yet to reach an agreement. The 29-year-old has not ruled out staying at Stamford Bridge, but his departure is looking likely as he looks no closer to penning a new deal. It is said that Rudiger wants a contract that shows his value.

A few weeks ago, Rudiger admitted that his future would also depend on the club. “I feel great here, I have always said it. I think the way I play you can see that I’m happy here. But there are also other people who have to make decisions.” Rudiger said to the Athletic.

According to Marca, Antonio Rudiger wants a contract worth over 45 million pounds. PSG and Real Madrid are in the race to sign Rudiger. 

With the exciting new project at Newcastle United, it will be interesting to see who Antonio Rudiger signs for. However, it will not be easy for any team to sign Rudiger as there is too much competition for the German international.
