Thomas Tuchel wants Chelsea to offer Antonio Rudiger a new deal as he wants to work with him when he signs a long term deal.
The Blues defender has been playing week in and out since the German man took charge from Frank Lampard who was sacked.
The German wasn’t used as Kurt Zouma and Thiago Silva played more often, but things seems to be in the favor of the ex Roma player who is now playing regular.
Antonio Rudiger is set for a new Chelsea contract as Thomas Tuchel is eager to let him remain with the club beyond his current deal which expires in 2022.
The defender will be in action tomorrow against Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League as they look to defender their 1-0 advantage from the first leg.
Chelsea will try to sign Antonio Rudiger to a contract extension before the summer to avoid the risk of him leaving on a free transfer in 2022 when his contract expire.
With the Daily Mail reporting manager Thomas Tuchel is a driving force in getting a deal done as soon as possible for the defender.
Tuchel has needed the German centre-back to perform at a high level with Thiago Silva injured and he has been solid so far.
Although, the 28-year-old has rewarded his boss with steady play at the back over the past month with solid back to back performances and they have kept some clean sheet.
Things have been good so far with the partnership of Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen which have produced a long run of unbeaten.
