Revealed: Which Chelsea man is “edging” closer to the exit door


Revealed: Which Chelsea man is “edging” closer to the exit door as teammates expect departure

Chelsea’s contract conundrum

Chelsea fans are slowly having to come to terms with the fact that the side that won the Champions League only 6 months ago may not be together for much longer.

In the final of that competition, Antonio Rudiger, Thiago Silva and Cesar Azpilicueta all started at the Estadio de Dragao, while Andreas Christensen came on as a substitute for Silva, who was forced off injured. Now, the future of all four is somewhat in doubt.

Thiago Silva seems certain to stay, and extend his time in west London, as he continues to excel even at the age of 37.

However, talks for the renewals of both Christensen and Azpilicueta have stalled.

And there could be worse news on Rudiger.

Rudi on the way?

One contract that looks as though it is slipping away from the Blues is that of Rudiger’s.

The German centre-back is thought to be keen to stay, but has not been offered a salary he deems reflective of his squad status, and as a result is on the verge of jumping ship, and joining Spanish league-leaders Real Madrid come the summer.

Indeed, this is a feeling shared by the players.

As per the reliable Matt Law:

“Real Madrid players believe Antonio Rudiger is set to move to the Spanish club on a free transfer at the end of the season with Chelsea yet to receive any encouragement over his Stamford Bridge future.”

On the potential of a deal being agreed with Chelsea, rather than Los Blancos, the same source revealed:

“While Chelsea would like to keep Rudiger and would be prepared to increase their original offer, they are also aware that being held to ransom could cause problems within the dressing-room and set a bad precedent.”

Should Chelsea risk this to tie down their best defender?
