Chelsea defender Rudiger admitted in an interview with "The Athletic" that he did receive several lease contracts in Xia Chuang, but they fell through for various reasons.
Rudiger got in touch with Roma, Inter Milan and AC Milan this summer. They are all looking for the possibility of renting Rudiger, but Rudiger is not in a hurry. He told The Athletic: "At the transfer window. In the two weeks before the end, I studied several options. In order to get more playing time, I had the opportunity to be loaned out, but due to many reasons and time issues, the deal was not reached in the end."
"I myself rejected one or two options. I don't want to pack up and leave just because I was excluded from the big list a few times. I like living in London and playing at Chelsea."
