Chelsea ace Antonio Rudiger 'agrees four-year deal to Juventus' amid Man Utd, Real Madrid and Bayern transfer interest

ANTONIO RUDIGER is allegedly set to sign a four-year contract with Juventus.

Chelsea’s German defender, 29, becomes a free agent in June when his current deal expires.

The Blues have tried – and failed – to convince Rudiger to sign an extension for much of the season.

And after Roman Abramovich's assets were frozen and sanctions placed on the club prevented them from negotiating new contracts, hope of keeping him have pretty much evaporated.

Manchester United, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich were all monitoring the situation.

However, a fresh report has claimed that Rudiger’s future is now sorted.

La Gazzetta dello Sport states that the star has said “yes” to a move to the Bianconeri.

He will sign a four-year deal with the Serie A giants as he prefers a move there over Madrid and Bayern.

Rudiger will pocket around £5.4 million per season in Italy.

Rudiger has been one of the world's best since Thomas Tuchel arrived at Chelsea.

The Blues have a number of deals expiring this summer, including defenders Rudiger, Cesar Azpilicueta and Andreas Christensen.
