Former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson believes Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has decided not to extend his contract with the club.
The German national team center is about to expire with the team in June next year. Which until now has not renewed the contract with the ufabet club. In the opinion of Merson believes that Rudiger made the decision when Frank Lampard was a backup. Even being reborn in the era of Thomas Tuchel has not changed.
“Chelsea will miss Antonio Rudiger when he leaves because it will cost £60-70 million to find a replacement,” Merson told the Daily Star. definitely go If he wanted to sign a new contract, he probably did. Now the chances of holding him back are gone.”
“But that’s not Thomas Tuchel’s fault, I think he made the decision when Frank Lampard cut him off. Although he has been a key player since Tukle came in and won the Champions League, Rudiger will not be forgotten.
“Right now, teams are queuing to sign him and some will pay huge sums to get him. He was one of the two best players all season for me and it wasn’t easy to replace, but Tuchel should be able to pick up who’s coming.
“There are not many world-class centers. And the people he came have to use money to pull in. That’s why I don’t understand why when clubs let players out of contracts like this. It doesn’t make any sense.”
