It’s no longer news that Real Madrid are after the acquisition of Rudiger from Chelsea with the intention of doubling the wage increase he demands from Chelsea by 200%.
Rudiger have been adamant to getting his pen on Chelsea Contract paper as his demands have not been met by the club.
The Chelsea defender rose to prominence after Thomas Tuchel got signed as the club new manager following the sack of Frank lampard and introduced a back three system with a defence system that made an error prone Rudiger a force to be reckoned with defensively.
Rudiger has made it known to the Chelsea board that he wants 200k euros in wages a drastic increase from his £115k wage be currently earns from the club.
His outrageous demand have brought about mixed opinions from fans who term the defender as been utterly greedy but his formidable form game after games continues to win the heart of fans who term his wage decision as greed as they feel who should be earning more than the current overpaid stars at Chelsea that currently are underperforming.
Players like Lukaku, Werner and pulisic earns more than the defender despite being on a pitiable form at the moment.
Thomas Tuchel has finally had his say on Rudiger wage demands from Chelsea this was what he said regarding this;
We absolutely accept and are fully aware of the importance of Toni and the role that he’s playing on and off the pitch,’ said Tuchel. ‘There is no doubt about that.
‘It’s true that nobody is bigger than the club and this is a team effort and a strong club. It’s not only about Toni and I mean that in the best way because we know what he’s doing and we’re fully aware of it.
‘In the end, we need a bit of patience. I have no update right now.’
Real Madrid wants his signature but they don’t desperately need him as that have an already water tight defence line already.
It would do Rudiger well to stay at Chelsea and hopefully turning out to be a legend at the club as he is currently loved by fans that support Chelsea.
