Antonio Rudiger wants as much as €10 million per year from Juventus as the Bianconeri continue negotiations with the Chelsea defender.
According to Calciomercato, Juventus are continuing negotiations with Antonio Rudiger in a bid to convince the wantaway Chelsea defender to join them. The German international wants a €10 million-a-year contract to join the Bianconeri, which may prove steep for the Serie A giants.
Antonio Rudiger is one of the many high profile players who enter the next transfer window as a free agent. Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe certainly headline the list of potential free transfers, as the trend of running down contracts is becoming very common across the top-five leagues in Europe.
As with all those players, they have not confirmed their intention to leave their current employers. A similar narrative transpires around Rudiger, who is yet to publicise his ideas. The chance to remain at Chelsea is still possible, although his financial demands may force the Blues to concede defeat.
Rudiger is reportedly seeking a €30 million signing-on fee from his suitors. In addition to that, the Chelsea contract rebel is demanding a massive €10 million-a-year salary to join a new club.
The report mentions the salary numbers regarding Juventus, who continue to negotiate a potential deal with Rudiger. After opening talks with the defender, the Serie A giants remain in pole position to sign the former AS Roma star. Rudiger also remains in constant dialogue with PSG and Real Madrid, as he continues to assess his options ahead of the summer.
Juventus are reportedly willing to offer €6 million-a-year plus bonuses. Rudiger may look away from such an offer, although the Old Lady would like to continue negotiations to find a solution.
They have to be quick in reaching an agreement and get Rudiger on board. The real danger comes from the other big clubs across the continent who are interested in the high-profile Chelsea contract rebel. As things stand, the German international is open to all possibilities, including continuing at Chelsea, although the Blues may find it hard to re-sign him until the club’s sale is formalised.
