Antonio Rudiger, a Chelsea defender, has revealed that he was close to leaving the London club last summer.
“Last summer there were really two teams that were actively interested in me. To be honest, one of those teams was PSG, with Thomas Tuchel at the time. In addition to the offer from Paris, there was also a call from Jose Mourinho, who was calling me to Tottenham,” BBC quotes Rudiger as saying.
“At Chelsea nobody told me I had to leave. But I was a bit upset because I knew my position in the team,” he said.
However, he went on: “In the end, nothing happened. Now everything is going well for me, and I am very happy about that. To be honest, I have always been treated well at Chelsea. The number one priority for me is to extend my contract with the Blues.
“But I cannot sign a contract with the club myself, so I have to wait to see what happens in the future. Everyone – me and the club – knows how much I love Chelsea, so it all depends on the people who make those decisions.”
