Paris Saint-Germain might be attempting to move on from Sergio Ramos, who hasn’t lived up to what they had hoped for, considering he couldn’t stay healthy. Furthermore, with Presnel Kimpembe’s inconsistency, it comes as no surprise the capital club is linked to central defenders.
One target that the French giants are connected to is Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger, whose contract expires in June, and at 29-years-old, has plenty of years left in his prime. Furthermore, it seems the Germany international plans to make his decision soon.
According to The Athletic, Rudiger wants to decide on his future by the end of this month. Furthermore, the report adds that the defender had his mind made up to leave, but Chelsea did open discussions in December.
Talks were progressing until owner Roman Abramovich was sanctioned, leading to the current process of selling the Premier League club.
Nonetheless, considering the situation regarding the ownership of Chelsea, he doesn’t plan to wait around to see how that plays out if he sticks by his reported deadline.
Should he decide to move to the French capital, Rudiger would be PSG’s second center-back and possibly the anchor of the backline.
Marquinhos failed his test as the anchor of the defense and captain in PSG’s second-leg loss to Real Madrid, so perhaps bringing in a veteran defender still in his prime with UEFA Champions League experience. PS
