Rudiger ready to quit Chelsea; demanding £400,000-a-week contract

Antonio Rudiger is ready to leave Chelsea for a bank-busting contract.

The Mirror says Rudiger is set to make himself one of the highest paid defenders ever with a £400,000-a-week pay packet abroad.

The 28-year-old Chelsea defender, one of the most influential figures within the European Champions' ranks, is out of contract at the end of the season.

Bayern Munich and Juventus, famed for snapping up top-class stars on free transfers, are both keen on his services and are understood to have a monster pay packet waiting once negotiations with foreign clubs are allowed to begin in January.

Fans favourite Rudiger is keeping his options open after being offered a new deal by Chelsea worth just £130,000-a-week. Striker Romelu Lukaku, the same age as the centre-back, is currently being paid £350,000-a-week.

Despite Rudiger's key role in landing the Champions League in May - Chelsea lifted the trophy with the best defence in the competition - the deal was offered to his representatives post-season with a deadline of the end of the summer to agree.

Rudiger's camp stood their ground and are now ready to listen to offers directly with rival European clubs at the Club World Cup in January which is expected to be taken away from Japan and moved to Abu Dhabi.
