Antonio Rudiger still has not agreed a new contract at Chelsea, and according to, an agreement is not getting any closer.

Letting the defender’s contract run down a little seemed sensible a year ago, when he wasn’t in the team anyway, but his revival since then means that locking him in to a long term deal has become essential.

If the club doesn’t come to an agreement with the former Roma man before January, he can start speaking to other teams about a free transfer – and it’s easy to see him being tempted by a big offer from elsewhere.

Certainly the situation is now playing into his hands quite nicely, and he’s unlikely to give up the superb leverage of his situation – at least until he can turn it into a deal he’s happy with.

As it stands, it looks increasingly likely that Rudiger heads into the sunset next summer.
