If someone came in with a big, big offer for him I'd take it and run. Yeah, he looks world class at the moment and I'm loving every minute of it. But deep down, I think we all know that he's not a truly world class defender is he? He's excelling in this system, what happens if Tuchel goes?

He's clearly messing about with the contract, we should tell him to be reasonable or f*ck off.

Given he was wrongly made a villain for Lamps getting sacked I am glad to see he is getting a good reaction from the match going fans.

Hopefully that remains and we have a successful season together before he heads off to Paris.

A few sites have this story circulating that although teams have contacted Toni, including Bayern he has informed them as of now he is currently more interested in staying with us.

What this tells me is its purely up to the club, either they think he's worth committing £200k a week to or not.

As I've said before to avoid the scenario where we get stuck with him for a long-term deal and may not want that just offer a 2-3 year extension surely that's a win win for everybody, with the view to review and evaluate closer to the finishing period.

The problem is teams can offer him 200k with 4 or 5 years. I just hope he doesn't go to Bayern. I am beginning to hate those German c**ts. They tapped up Odoi and are the primary reason why his career as stagnated with all that hype too soon, they also stole Musiala from our youth set up.

He has said he won't won't rushed and it is the most important deal of his career:

Basically I take from that he will want to hear all the offers he has and talk to managers himself, as allowed, in Jan about what his role would be as well as about money.

Can’t have players doing that though, an offer has been on the table for 2yrs now. I would look for a replacement in Jan & sell him.

If he leaves he will forever be saying to himself "what it could of been" and "i threw it all away".

How do i know ? Ask the best ever player to wear the Chelsea shirt.

Think Franco was still happy he got to finish his career at his boyhood club, it was the ending he wanted.

Who is going to pay money got him when on 6 months they can have him for free?

This "most important deal of his career" stuff is all a load of nonsense ... unless he is incredibly bad with money, he is already made for life financially, and probably the next two generations of his family as well. 

He either wants to play for Chelsea or he doesn't. The club aren't exactly bad payers when it comes to player wages.

Hopefully all this Bayern, Juve,  £400K a week bollocks is just click bait in the media, or his agent scum going fishing.

I suppose the issue with Rüdiger, and this is assuming that Tuchel's long-term plan is to stick with a back three (which all of our transfer activity since he arrived suggests that it is), is that we don't have a alternative to him on the left side of the three who fits in naturally. He is our only specialist at left centre-back. This isn't true of any other 'defensive' roles in the back five:

On the right we have Azpilicueta, Christensen, Chalobah or at a push, James;

In the middle we have Christensen or Silva;

At right wing-back we have James, Azpilicueta or Hudson-Odoi (maybe Chalobah);

At left wing-back we have Chilwell or Alonso.

 

We've seen how awkward it is to fill the role whenever we've tried to rest Rüdiger or he's been unavailable. The default was an uncomfortable-looking Zouma, but I remember us trying Emerson (of all people) once in the cup. Early days for Malang Sarr, but my initial suspicion is that he's nowhere near good enough.

I suppose this is the roundabout way of saying that Rüdiger is very important in our current setup, and is in a very good position negotiation-wise. His isn't a role that can currently be filled from within the squad. If he leaves, he will need to be replaced by another specialist.

 

As an addendum, you really do have to give the guy credit. It was less than a year ago that we were on the verge of binning him off. Now he's a European Cup winner and a nailed-on starter.

That's why our summer pursuits of Hakimi and Kounde were a little surprising. They're both right sided players but the biggest lack of depth is on the left.

Made absolutely no sense considering our LCB was refusing to sign a contract. Bad planning.

Rudi saying all the right things and showing to be a leader in the group:

Shame we are likely losing his personality more than anything else at the end of the season. He seems to have become quite a leader.
