Thomas Tuchel will have to amend one of Frank Lampard’s decisions at Chelsea. The English coach did not give priority to the renewal of Antonio Rüdiger and the German center-back will be released in 2022 if he does not sign a new contract with the Stamford Bridge club.
The Teuton has made an extraordinary end of the season under the orders of Thomas Tuchel and the ‘blues’ see the continuity of one of their defensive props threatened.
Apparently, at the moment when Chelsea decided to start talks with Rüdiger to renew, Lampard decided to paralyze them by having the player in the background.
Marina Granovskaia, the negotiator of the English club, put on the table a new contract for the footballer. However, everything was paralyzed and with the recent success in the Champions League, largely due to the good work of Rüdiger, now the rush is coming.
Several clubs, among which are PSG and Tottenham, are attentive to the situation of the German international, who started the season as a substitute and has been gaining weight in the team until he is one of the leaders.
Chelsea do not want to lose their leadership and their physical power for the defensive parcel, but the current situation will force the ‘blues’ to scratch their pockets to retain the 28-year-old player.
