Manchester United planning to launch a ‘highly-lucrative’ offer to snap up Chelsea star.

Manchester United are reportedly preparing a huge offer for Chelsea star Antonio Rudiger.

The 28-year-old contract with Chelsea is set to expire at the end of the season, and he has rejected the opportunity to extend his deal with the club.

According to Football Insider, Manchester United have added Antonio Rudiger to their transfer wish list and are preparing to make a move for the German next summer.

The Red Devils are believed to be keen to sign a top-quality defender to partner Raphael Varane at the heart of the club’s defense next season.

Manchester United have reportedly grown frustrated with inconsistent performances from the likes of Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, and Eric Bailly.

Antonio Rudiger joined Chelsea from Italian side AS Roma in the summer of 2017 in a deal worth £29 million. Rudiger immediately became a regular member of Chelsea’s starting line-up and was a key member of the Blues’ squad during his first two seasons with the club.

Rudiger played a key role in Chelsea’s Champions League victory last season and has continued his good form for the club during the 2021-22 campaign.

He helped Chelsea win two FA Cups, a Champions League title, and a Europa League title during his four-and-a-half seasons with the club. The 28-year-old has entered the final six months of his contract with Chelsea.

He has thus far been unable to agree on a contract extension with the Blues. Chelsea have reportedly refused to meet Rudiger’s exorbitant wage demands.

Manchester United, on the other hand, possesses the finances required to meet the German’s wage demands and will look to make a ‘highly lucrative offer’ next summer.
