Antonio Rudiger makes Chelsea contract demand as Romelu Lukaku sent transfer warning

Here is your Chelsea morning digest on Saturday, January 22, as the Blues prepare to face Tottenham Hotspur in an important London derby tomorrow.

Rudiger contract demand

According to Marca, Antonio Rudiger is asking for a new deal at Chelsea worth £46million – equivalent to £180,000-per-week if spread across a five-year deal or £220,000-per-week over four years.

Rudiger, 28, has been a mainstay in the Chelsea first team and a vital player for Thomas Tuchel, but with just six months left on his current contract, there’s still a worry that he won’t commit his future to Stamford Bridge.

Mourinho breaks silence

Former Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has broken his silence on recent links to the Everton job.

The Toffees are reportedly monitoring Mourinho’s situation at Roma as they look to replace the recently sacked Rafa Benitez.

He’s always spoken highly about Everton, but unfortunately for the Toffees, it looks as though he’ll be staying put in Rome – for now at least.

As cited by Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano on Twitter, Mourinho has emphasised that he is committed to the project at Roma.

“Right now I wouldn’t change my job here at Roma with another one,” the Portuguese manager said.

“I gave my world to Roma for three years and I feel this is my project.”

Carragher sends Lukaku transfer warning

Jamie Carragher thinks that Chelsea may be forced into selling Romelu Lukaku if his form doesn’t improve by the end of the season.

“Remember when Chelsea played Liverpool in August and the match preview was all about the ‘heavyweight’ clash between Lukaku and Virgil van Dijk? How long ago does that seem now? Lukaku has not looked in fighting shape since his comeback, that’s for sure,” Carragher wrote in his Telegraph column.

“If his form does not improve it will become a problem the club will have to consider between now and the end of the season, weighing up as to whether they will need another solution up front when planning for a renewed title bid next year.”
