Antonio Rudiger has opened up on his future at Chelsea ahead of this weekend’s Champions League final. Rudiger is about to enter the final year of his contract with the Blues. The German international is yet to decide on whether to sign an extension.

Chelsea manager is now hoping Rudiger will sign a new deal at Stamford Bridge.

“Nothing is better than what he is doing for a new contract,” Tuchel said earlier this month. “If he wants to have a new contract he has our full support to stay at the club. He is speaking with his performances. He has been amazing since day one.”

After securing a place in next season’s Champions League by finishing fourth in the Premier League, Chelsea now play Manchester City in Saturday’s Champions League final. Rudiger was asked about Tuchel’s comments and his future at the club.

“That’s nice and I’m happy too,” he told Kicker. “You always make your decisions to some extent dependent on the coaching staff, but in the long term you can never rely on them anyway. After the European Championships, we can talk.”
