Several clubs are interested in signing the defender, who was nominated for UEFA Defender of the Season.


The report lists Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain as serious contenders for the German, as the club have utilisted the free agent market over the past summer. The French club signed Lionel Messi, Sergio Ramos, Gini Wijnaldum and Gianluigi Donnaruma on free transfers this summer.

Spanish rivals Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid are also interested in acquiring Rudiger for free next summer and could battle for his signature on a free transfer.

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich could look to bring the 28-year-old back to Germany after departing Stuttgart to sign for Chelsea under Antonio Conte.

Sport1 continue to confirm that 'everything is open at the moment' so it remains to be seen as to whether Rudiger will sign on with the Blues or look to move abroad at the end of his current deal.
