Antonio Rudiger’s Chelsea career under Frank Lampard appears to be drawing to a close after he was left out from the squad for the second successive game, according to Daily Mail. Rudiger has been left out from the squad of the game against Liverpool and now against Barnsley.
The Germany international will leave Stamford Bridge before the October 5 transfer deadline. Paris Saint-Germain are interested in taking the central defender during this window.
Despite losing his place in Lampard’s plans, Rudiger maintains his reputation as one of the most accomplished defenders in Europe. Rudiger has two years left to run on his current deal but has not been approached about signing an extension. That means he effectively becomes a free agent in January 2022.
