PSG in talks to agree deal for Chelsea 28-year-old defender

Paris Saint-Germain could sign one of Chelsea’s key men next year, according to the latest reports.

Les Parisiens are said to have pinpointed defensive powerhouse, Antonio Rudiger, as their summer target, and are planning to go all out to lure the player to France.

Foot Mercato reports that they have already held discussions with the player’s entourage Sahr Sanessie over his client’s potential transfer to the Parc des Princes.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino is understood to be in love with the prospect of landing the Chelsea star, who he thinks has a lot to offer.

Meanwhile, the Ligue 1 giants could face stern competition from other European outfits for the services of Rudiger.

His situation at Stamford Bridge has drawn the attention of the likes of Bayern Munich and Real Madrid, who have joined the hunt for Rudiger’s signature.

It’s worth noting that the former Roma ace is already in the final year of his deal with Chelsea, meaning he will become a free agent at the end of the term.

Sources have said that the centre-half has no intentions of staying in London. He could start talks with suitors as early as January.
