As we all know, Rudiger wants a big new contract which will see him go up the ladder in terms of wages being payed. He wants a £200K a week contract but Chelsea haven't offered a contract close to this number.

Chelsea won't be held to ransom and I have to say I absolutely like this kind of approach.
I can understand Rudiger's desire for a better contract as this is probably his last big contract before he retires.
So the question for me is, are other clubs willing to pay such wages? Bayern, Real and PSG are reportedly interested, but I don't think they are going to pay that much for him.
Another to consider is the fact that he may not be as successful as he is right now with Chelsea, like what we have seen with Hazard and Willian.

What do you think guys?
I personally think that Roudiger will leave and we will let him go.

{Ed002's Note - Antonio Rudiger (CB) declared interest from Juventus, Real Madrid and Barcelona but all would want a loan to buy deal - the Spanish sides will push. Bayern Munich will look to buy and they have a pressing need. Bayern Munich have spoken with his agent to explore options. Juventus has a preferred option and would be unlikely to look any further unless there is a significant change - and I suspect they will have more than their preferred option ahead of him. Barcelona also have a preferred option and they will have a new coach who will no doubt have his own ideas before long. PSG is after a young CB and unless they sell Marquinhos they would likely not have any interest in Rudiger - and then he would not be top of the list. Real Madrid are a more interesting option as they have sustained interest and the need to add a starting CB. They have identified several but know that a couple are too expensive so a Rudiger transfer might be something they look to. Chelsea has no interest in selling and want him to sign a new contract and that remains the plan right now. If he is unwilling to sign he will be allowed to move on.}

We veery rarely if ever under Roman keep a player who wants to leave.

If the club make him an offer that it thinks is reasonable and he wants more or just feels he can do better elsewhere, then I guess he will leave.

There isn’t much more the club can do.

24 Sep 2021 11:31:44
Thanks a lot Ed002. Brilliant.

I agree Tom. There are lots of factors and complexities in the negotiations, but I guess in the end it's fairly straightforward.

24 Sep 2021 13:18:30
If rudiger doesn’t sign, is kounde still the target or possibly someone else like Marquinhos,

{Ed002's Note - It is sort of unrelated to Rudiger as Silva will need replacing. There are targets the same as in the summer and a couple of youngsters close to the first team.}

24 Sep 2021 13:36:44
Top man Ed, I forgot about silva, after his performance v Spurs it’s easy to forget his 37.

24 Sep 2021 18:01:38
I do think it will be in the club's best interest to tie Rudiger down to a contract that is suitable for both parties. He has shown that form is temporary and class is permanent. He is a terrific CB, his pace isn't spoken about much but its a HUGE asset to us which is a bonus to his qualities of a CB.

24 Sep 2021 18:18:38
I would love Marquinhos tbh he’s like a mini Thiago Silva and still very young. He’s a leader as well.

16 Sep 2021 15:52:10
Assuming Rudiger becomes available in January would it be correct to say that anyone signing him is likely to pay him a substantial signing on fee plus wages?
I am not clear whether this is the normal structure for a player out of contract or whether the offer would be purely very high wages.
If this were to happen is there any reason why Chelsea wouldn't offer him a signing on fee as well?
It's being reported that the club have offered him £140k per week but not a signing on fee.
If that is the case it would be surprising if he stayed.
Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure why you are making such an assumption. If Rudiger tells the club he wishes to leave I am sure they will facilitate it. Any club buying him if his contract were to run down would indeed pay a signing on fee and all footballers have "wages". The club may have made what they consider to be the best deal for both parties and if it goes nowhere the club will not be held to ransom and will let the player leaves if that is what he wants.}

Thanks as always for the clarification Ed.

All seems pretty straightforward to me!

17 Sep 2021 06:46:19
Thanks Ed.

Me too Tom.

17 Sep 2021 10:30:10
? Ed002; you are a hero.

17 Sep 2021 11:13:46
Thanks Ed.

15 Sep 2021 13:07:30
Any truth in the rumours that Bayern are interested in signing Werner?
What would be the clubs position if that was true?
Many thanks
P. S
I did a search but a series of warnings came up for some reason.

{Ed002's Note - Timo Werner (F) Seen by Borussia Dortmund as a potential addition when Haaland leaves and bayern Munich has a plan which may see Haaland and Werner paired to replace the potentially departing Lewandowski and Muller. If the player were to want to leave Chelsea the club would be supportive of that as they always are. But the summer is still far off.}

Bayern Munich is really smart indeed for wanting to pair Haaland and Werner. I feel Chelsea too should be trying to pair Lukaku and Werner- now that we have both players: TT please take note, if that is not what you are planning or doing.

15 Sep 2021 18:40:11
Thank you very much for that information.

16 Sep 2021 09:12:13
Very interesting read Ed002 much appreciated.

14 Sep 2021 17:24:38
Good evening Ed002; please is Chelsea interested in Jurrien Timber?

{Ed002's Note - Jurrien Timber (CB) Monaco have identified the player as a target andd ioffer a route to first team football but it would be seen as a sideways step. An ex-Chelsea player and advisor to the club has spoken with his agent and has recommended the player to Chelsea - but the club would not be able to offer first team football in the short term which is why the likes of Tomori, Guehi and Dynel Simeu moved on. Chelsea have two youngsters on the fringes of the first team and space would be an issue as the focus is on a starter. Barcelona have a scout in Amsterdam who has been pushing the club to look to Timber instead of another option. Spurs have had a scout attending the Ajax and Jong Ajax games and he has alerted Spurs to the player.}{

Thank you.

15 Sep 2021 15:41:03
Hi Ed002, who are the 2 youngsters on the fringe of 1st team action?

{Ed002's Note - Mbuyamba and Sarr.}

14 Sep 2021 13:18:31
ED002, What is our interest in De Ligt.
Are we looking to get him to Chelsea?

Appreciate you input.

{Ed002's Note - Matthijs de Ligt (CB) Barcelona and Real Madrid, as a Kounde alternative, have a declared interest but Juventus will resist selling. The player is happy to play in Italy but if the options arose to move his preference would be for Barce,lona or Real Madrid.}

Jorginho a agent talking again about jorginho going back to Italy, Italy, and a dream move etc etc, be handy if he could actually move his player on and get decent fee, wants to talk to Italian clubs as much as the media,

Agree0 0Disagree

Agents have a duty to do the best for their client.

He could just as easily be after a new contract from us with higher wages by saying what he is saying. I treat it all as a silly game that all agents play!

07 Sep 2021 08:23:15
Don't get frustrated Matt. Whatever happens, I'm sure we will get the best outcome.

07 Sep 2021 10:53:39
A month ago he was talking about extending his contract which seems a more likely outcome.

07 Sep 2021 12:59:44
See how Saul does, move him on and in the summer get kantes successor. I get it’s his agents Job but it’s all the time, tell this rubbish to the club if it’s for negotiations, not talking about his players desire to go Italy, we’ve all had that desire for him at some point.

05 Sep 2021 20:28:22
Apparently Martinez and Beundia won't be available for Villa v us next week,

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Sep 2021 21:55:03
They might be in prison at this rate never mind playing 😂.

05 Sep 2021 22:28:51
What a shambles and embarrassment,

06 Sep 2021 04:27:09
Obviously could be good news for us but this is exactly why clubs didn’t want to release their players. Ridiculous.

31 Aug 2021 18:13:04
Any chance you can put us out of our misery with Koundé Ed002- per Monchi's comments- are the club not going to pay the release clause needed to get him out of there?
Would appreciate it.

{Ed002's Note - That is not this issue I am afraid. If the issue can be resolved something may be possible but right now it is not.}

Agree0 0Disagree

31 Aug 2021 19:21:34
Does it have to do something with them securing a replacement?

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

31 Aug 2021 19:27:21
I can only assume will possibly try in Jan or next season for him?

31 Aug 2021 21:36:05
Think they want Botman but his club don’t want to sell.

01 Sep 2021 08:46:59
Hopefully something they can resolve over the coming months, and Chelsea can revisit a deal in January or next summer.
