Rudiger 28-year-old center-back’s contract at Stamford Bridge will expire in the summer of 2022 and he has no intention of renewing his deal.

The London Side Chelsea has long prioritized extending Rudiger’s contract, even above trying to sign Raphael Varane from Real Madrid before he joined Manchester United in the last transfer window.

Chelsea Coach Thomas Tuchel has been involved in trying to convince the German international to commit to fresh terms, but the mission appears impossible.

Had Not Signed  A New Contract With Chelsea

The last offer the Blues made was around €8 million (£7m/$9m) net per year, but Rudiger is aware that he would still be paid less than team-mates such as Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Marcos Alonso, Timo Werner, Thiago Silva, Kai Havertz and Romelu Lukaku.

After the return of Carlo Ancelotti as a coach, Madrid has been discussing a move for a new central defender.

Rudiger is the preferred candidate and the Santiago Bernabeu side hopes to add him to the likes of Eder Militao, David Alaba, and Nacho to shore up the position.

Madrid has studied other options in their hunt for a new center-back, but they are optimistic about signing Rudiger despite various obstacles that stand in their way.

One of those is that Rudiger’s contract situation makes him coveted by several top teams in Europe, with Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain also keeping a close eye on developments in west London.

Another issue, which Bayern will also struggle with, is the difficulty of meeting his salary demands, as media in England and Germany claim he wants around €12m (£10m/$14m) net per season.

‘Helped Chelsea To Clinch The Champions League Trophy’ Mendy

The 29-year-old Senegal custodian, who has enjoyed a good run of form since joining the Blues from Rennes in September 2020, capped a great season by helping Chelsea to clinch the Champions League trophy after beating Manchester City 1-0 in the final.

Despite the achievement, Mendy feels his save that denied the France international from putting Real Madrid ahead in their semi-final clash at Stamford Bridge, was his best ever.

The Blues and Los Blanco were tied at 0-0 when Mendy stretched to keep out a powerful shot from Benzema that looked destined for the bottom corner.

And three minutes after the save, Chelsea scored their opener and went on to beat Real Madrid 2-0 and progress to the final after a 3-1 aggregate result.

Asked to pick his best save in the entire campaign of the Champions League, Mendy told the club’s official website: “I think it was against Madrid, in the semi-final at home, because the score was 0-0 and they had a great chance.

“I made the save from Benzema to keep us in the game and we scored three minutes after, so for me, it is the biggest save I have made.”

Incredible Achievement For Me And I Am Really Proud To Be In Chelsea

On Monday, Mendy was named the runner-up to Italy’s Euro 2020-winning goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma for the Yashin Trophy.

“It is an incredible achievement for me and I am really proud to be in Chelsea and to be part of the club,” Mendy explained his latest achievement.

“We did an excellent job last year and we continue this year. Hopefully, everything will continue well. See you next year!.

“For football, 2021 is the best year of my life because it was an amazing season, we won the biggest title in Europe in my first year in a big club. It’s my best year at the moment but I hope the next years will be better or the same.”

Last season, Mendy managed to keep 16 clean sheets in his 31 Premier League matches for Chelsea and also recorded nine shutouts in the Champions League.
