Report: Antonio Rudiger Hands Juventus Transfer Blow Amid Real Madrid Interest

Juventus are set to miss out on the chance of signing Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger, according to reports.

The 28-year-old's deal at Stamford Bridge is set to expire at the end of the season and no extension has yet been agreed. 

Rudiger is wanted by Chelsea and Thomas Tuchel but the parties are still apart on their demands and willingness to agree a fresh contract. 

It has seen clubs across Europe show interest in signing the Germany international on a free transfer next summer, including the likes of Juventus, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Barcelona and others.

He also responded to the transfer links to Bayern Munich, adding: "The interest honours me. That shows that I've done a few things right recently.

"But I don't let myself be distracted. I have an obligation to my club to perform well. I have to prove myself every game and not let myself be distracted by rumours. I make my decisions for myself. They don't depend on anyone. I feel good where I am."
