Chelsea transfer news today, Chelsea latest news today, Tuchel latest news today, breaking from Stamford Bridge live update.
Chelsea is concerned Rudiger’s new contract demands could upset the dressing room.
The 28-year-old is calling for a minimum wage of £ 200,000 a week and Chelsea’s latest offer is said to have fallen £ 60,000 a week below Rudigers’s demands.
According to the Telegraph, the Blues are ready to increase their original bid but are aware that reluctance to pay a ransom could lead to a behind-the-scenes riot at Stamford Bridge.
The experienced professionals César Azpilicueta and Thiago Silva do not yet have to renew their contracts with the West Londoner, while Andreas Christensen has already refused two contract extensions.
And Chelsea officials fear that surrendering to Rudigers’ demands would set a bad precedent for future renewals with the rest of the team.
Tuchel will not only try to retain Rüdiger, Azpilicueta, Christensen and Silva but will also present new deals to Mason Mount and Reece James at the end of the campaign to avoid interest from other parties.
What if Rudiger’s contract is not renew, can it affects Chelsea not to lift the trophy?.
Let see how it goes. But, it will be better if Rudiger’s contract is renew and signed.
