As Chelsea failed to sign target players at the concluded winter transfer window, Thomas Tuchel needs his key players to continue to do great job at Stamford Bridge. The latest updates should make all CHELSEA fans to be happy.
The Blues might actually have a chance at retaining Rudiger who has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid in recent months. Reliable sources have indicated that Chelsea have held constructive talks with the German defender and a common sense of understanding has been reported between Marina Granovskaia and Antonio Rudiger over the extension of his contract. The talks are taking baby steps because the negotiations are delicate, but massive progress is expected to be made in the next few weeks, preferably before the season ends.
Antonio Rudiger’s contract is expected to expire at the end of the season and according to his agent, he wants his salary to be increased to around €400k per week which will make him the most paid defender in the World. Chelsea were very reluctant at first about agreeing to the new deal but since finding his replacement will be equally as difficult, they have decided to negotiate for a cut-price salary.
Trevoh Chalobah is going to be a massive figure for Chelsea next season since Thomas Tuchel has expressed satisfaction on how the 20-year-old plays as a starting eleven player. Some have even said that Tuchel might decide against signing a new defender when Azpilicueta and Christensen leave because Chalobah and Sarr have proven to him that they are worth the risk to keep. Against Liverpool in the Carabao Cup finals, Chalobah was very solid and that earned him positive and reassuring remarks from Thomas Tuchel.
Thomas Tuchel said, “Trevoh Chalobah did not play for six to eight weeks, and he just played 120 minutes against Diaz, Mane, and Salah. And he was brilliant too. The assistance of Rudiger and Thiago Silva has helped him a lot and the other players have also been supportive towards him.”
