“An outrageous price” Rudiger states his demands to stay at Chelsea

Rudiger ‘demands £225k a week and signing-on bonus to stay at Chelsea with Man Utd on red alert over free transfer.

ANTONIO RUDIGER is reportedly demanding a whopping £225,000 per week and a signing-on bonus to stay at Chelsea.

And that is keeping Manchester United on red alert as they consider a shock approach.

Rudiger, 28, is out of contract at Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.

According to The Athletic, he is now asking for an extra £25,000 per week on top of his previous wishes.

And the report adds if he does sign an extension in West London, he would want an additional one-off payment.

However, he has reportedly rejected an offer of £140,000 per week from the Blues as well as a £173,000-a-week deal from Real Madrid, who have stepped away from the negotiating table.

Speaking in January, Rudiger was adamant he is committed to staying with his current club.

He said: “You have to think about your family.

“My kids were born here in London so that tells you that my family feel great here.

“The rest is up to other people to make decisions and then we will see if we come together or not.”

Rudiger, who turns 29 next month, can enter talks with overseas clubs now with Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich interested.

But it is United who are now tracking the 49-cap German over a summer free transfer.

Compatriot Ralf Rangnick will move into an advisory role at the end of the season to help pave way for a younger, long-term manager.

Nonetheless, Rangnick is a big fan of the centre-back and wants him at Old Trafford next season.

Fellow Chelsea defenders Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta are also into the last six months of their Stamford Bridge deals
