Top 24-year-old responds to Chelsea transfer reports
Antonio Rudiger remains coy when quizzed about the speculation linking him with a transfer from Roma to Chelsea
Antonio Rudiger remained coy when quizzed about the speculation linking him with a transfer to Chelsea this summer.
The Roma defender has been touted as a target for the Blues in recent days, with reports claiming that the 24-year-old is close to completing a move to Stamford Bridge.
Rudiger is currently celebrating helping Germany beat Chile in the Confederations Cup final in Russia on Sunday night.
And the player himself insists that he is not thinking about his future right now as he celebrates helping Germany win the trophy for the first time.
Rudiger is quoted as saying by Metro: “It’s not about the future now… it’s now about enjoyment.
“I need to enjoy this moment, and I’m enjoying it to the fullest. The rest, we will see in the coming weeks.”
Chelsea are thought to be on the lookout for a number of defensive reinforcements this summer, with the Blues having lost both John Terry and Nathan Ake so far this summer.
The west London side continue to be linked with a host of players this summer, but the Blues have so far only concluded a deal to sign goalkeeper Willy Caballero on a free transfer from Manchester City.
