Man City, Tottenham joining race for Rudiger as Chelsea talks stall

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger is attracting interest from two Premier League clubs.

The German will be a free agent at the end of the 2021/22 season and will be free to sign a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs from January onwards.

PSG, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Juventus are all interested in the signing the 28-year-old, who has stalled in talks with Chelsea over a new contract.

Gianluca di Marziohas said Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City have joined the race for Rudiger's signature.

Rudiger has already made 15 appearances for Chelsea this season.

The Germany international acknowledged there was interest from Bundesliga giants Bayern.

He said: "The interest from Bayern Munich honours me because that shows that I've done a few things right recently, but I won't let that distract me."
