Di Marzio: Rudiger leaving Chelsea for one of these 4 clubs

Chelsea defender Toni Rudiger is demanding €12m-a-year to sign a new contract.

Via Fussball Transfers, Cadena SER says clubs across Europe have been informed the German's personal demands by intermediaries. Rudiger is now inside the final 12 months of his current Blues deal.

Italian transfer expert Gianni di Marzio, of Sky Sports Italia, revealed: "Rüdiger is talking to Juventus, Man City, Tottenham and even PSG who still need a defender.

"It's difficult for him to sign a new contract. He will join one of the four named teams."

Indeed, it's suggested Chelsea have already informed Rudiger they won't up their last offer - which falls well short of what his camp are seeking. Rudiger's brother and agent has been taking soundings from across Europe since the start of the season.

With Chelsea, the 28 year-old Rudiger is now entering his fourth season. At Stamford Bridge, Rudiger has made 155 appearances, scoring seven goals. This season, the Champions League winner has made twelve appearances for the Blues, scoring once.
