The Ligue 1 club are looking to keep him away from a possible transfer to Real Madrid and have therefore offered a more lucrative salary package: a contract of 7 million euros per season, according to the report. The move would become official when his contract with Chelsea expires this summer.
It has appeared that the 28-year-old center-back’s favorite destination will be the Santiago Bernabeu, so PSG sporting director Leonardo is doing all he can to persuade Rudiger to choose Paris as his next home.
The Germany international has been a priority for Thomas Tuchel’s side this season, with the club hoping he would renew his current terms at Stamford Bridge. But the arrival of another big European club at the negotiating table could now mean that the Blues must start looking for alternatives before next season.
