Germany international Antonio Rudiger has reportedly made a final decision on his future with Premier League giants Chelsea.
Rudiger's deal with the reigning European champions expires at the end of the current season, but it looks as if the club will be losing one of their star performers.
Various reports in England have reported that German defender will leave Stamford Bridge in June after rejecting the club's latest contract offer.
The Sun have reported that the 29-year-old has rejected a contract that would have seen him earn more than £200,000 a week at the London club.
The report adds that Rudiger priced himself out of staying after asking for a bigger signing-on fee for his agent, but the Premier League have refused to meet that demand.
Renowned football journalist Fabrizio Romano claims that Spanish giants Real Madrid are now favourites to sign the German central defender on a free transfer.
This decision will be a big blow for Thomas Tuchel and Chelsea, who are also reportedly set to lose fellow defender Andreas Christensen to Barcelona on a free transfer at the end of the season.
