Chelsea make fresh contract offer to centre-back
Chelsea have made a fresh contract proposal to centre-back Antonio Rudiger, according to Goal.
The German has entered the final five months of his contract, and he has yet to agree terms over a renewal.
He has already snubbed two offers on the table. The Blues have now made a fresh proposal to the defender.
Rudiger is eyeing £200,000-a-week to stay, and the London giants are now willing to meet his demands.
Talks are scheduled over the coming weeks, and there is growing optimism that he will commit his future.
Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid have been heavily linked with the German in the past few months.
They are willing to hand a better salary package, but Rudiger's preference remains to stay with the Blues.
He is prepared to accept a lesser salary, but would still prefer to be paid close to the club's highest earners.
Rudiger has been almost ever-present under manager Thomas Tuchel, having previously been out-of-favour.
