Chelsea defender speaking with two Premier League clubs?
Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger is reportedly holding talks with Manchester City and Tottenham Hotpur amid his uncertain Blues future.
The Germany international has been in a contract stand-off with the Blues as they have refused to meet his weekly wage demands.
He will enter the final six months of his deal in January, and Real Madrid and Bayern plan to open talks over a pre-contract.
However, Gianluca di Marzio claims that the centre-back prefers to stay in the Premier League when his Blues contract expires.
The defender does not have permission to speak with domestic clubs at the moment, but his agent is working behind the scenes.
Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur are among the top English clubs that have been informed over Rudiger's situation.
Spurs were keen on landing the German on loan when Jose Mourinho was their manager last year, but a deal failed to materialise.
Rudiger has been an almost ever-present figure for the Blues in the Premier League since Thomas Tuchel took charge as manager in January.
