Chelsea star Antonio Rudiger has confirmed he has no intention of leaving the club despite speculation linking him with Bayern Munich.

German international Antonio Rudiger has played a key role for Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea side in 2021 alongside partners Andreas Christensen and Thiago Silva.

However, his previous situation under Frank Lampard, and a contract expiring next summer, had opened the door to a possible exit.

But despite the chat, Rudiger has confirmed he is flattered by the Bayern gossip but insisted he is fully focused on the Blues.

Renewal talks are set to be stepped up before the end of 2021 as Chelsea aim to keep him at Stamford Bridge.
