Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has said he is “confident” defender Antonio Rudiger will sign a new contract to stay with the European champions.
The 28-year-old Germany international is able to speak to other clubs and is out of contract at the end of 2021-22.
Rudiger scored the only goal as Chelsea beat Tottenham 1-0 in the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final on Wednesday to seal a 3-0 aggregate win.
“Things are clear. Talks are going on and we are confident,” said Tuchel.
“Nothing has changed. Everybody knows the situation, let’s wait and see.
“We have things to offer and he is the player he is in a Chelsea shirt and a Chelsea environment. He knows that very well.”
