January is approaching and the time is coming to sign players who will be released next summer. One of the most talked about players to leave his current team is Antonio Rüdiger, Chelsea's French centre-back. He wants to be paid 12 million per season and the Blues are refusing to give it to him.
This made clubs like Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Barcelona interested in acquiring the defender at the end of the season at zero cost. At the moment, he is comfortable with Thomas Tuchel in the dugouts, unlike when Frank Lampard was in charge. However, the price is high.
According to 'Footmercato', these European giants have found a big competitor. This is none other than PSG who would be willing to repeat the formula used with Messi, Ramos, Wijnaldum or Donnarumma to acquire the defender for the next season at zero cost. The media claimed that the Parisian side could pay him the salary he is asking for.
The club have already held talks with the player's agent and half-brother, Sahr Senesie. In addition, they indicate that Mauricio Pochettino would have given his approval to the operation, so the ball would be in the court of the 28-year-old. This would mean a new mess between Madrid and PSG, who already fought for Mbappé in the last transfer window.
