Antonio Rudiger ‘wants to speak to new Manchester United manager’
Chelsea centre-back Antonio Rudiger allegedly wants to speak to Manchester United’s new head coach before making a decision on a potential move to Old Trafford.
Rudiger’s contract at Stamford Bridge is due to expire at the end of June, and the Germany international continues to be heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge.
Man United are believed to be one of the clubs in the mix for the defender, and according to German journalist Christian Falk, the 29-year-old wants to speak to the club’s new head coach before making a decision.
The Red Devils are currently in the process of appointing a new manager, with Ajax’s Erik ten Hag recently meeting with the club to undergo an interview.
Paris Saint-Germain’s Mauricio Pochettino is also firmly in the frame for the position at Old Trafford, but Spain boss Luis Enrique has ruled himself out of the running for the role ahead of the 2022 World Cup.
Rudiger, also linked with Juventus, Real Madrid and PSG, has scored three goals and registered four assists in 42 appearances for Chelsea during the 2021-22 campaign.
The German is believed to be open to remaining in the Premier League if he leaves the Blues this summer.
