Reports are heavily linking Man Utd with a move to lure Antonio Rudiger, whose contract with Chelsea will expire next summer. According to Sport Bild (via SW), the Red Devils are interested in signing the German international.

Christian Falk, who is the Head of Football for Bild/Sport Bild have recently claimed that Man Utd have signaled that they are ready for talks in order to negotiate a deal with the former Roma center half.

The German journalist has claimed that the 28-year-old is looking to get a contract that will make him earn max £15million a year (£290,000 a week).

Rudiger was mainly a bench warmer under former boss of Frank Lampard but he has been one of the key players under the management of compatriot, Thomas Tuchel, who helped Chelsea win the Champions League last term and the Super Cup this season.

Man Utd desperately need to improve things at the back to challenge the likes of Liverpool, City and Chelsea. In your view, should they agree a deal worth £290,000 a week to sign Antonio Rudiger.
