Chelsea centre-back, Antonio Rudiger, is reportedly holding out for a new contract worth £46m in total.
The Germany international is running down the final few months of his existing deal with the Blues but recently appeared to hint that he would be open to signing an extension.
Long-running talks over a new deal are yet to bear fruit, though, with Rudiger’s financial demands thought to be presenting a roadblock in negotiations.

According to Marca, Rudiger wants his proposed new contract at Stamford Bridge to be worth a whopping £46m, with Chelsea’s opening offer of £135k a week ‘upsetting’ the former Roma man.
Should Rudiger ultimately opt against extending his Chelsea deal, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United are expected to battle it out for his services.
Rudiger has two goals and two assists to his name from 22 Premier League appearances this term, and the 28-year-old has won the Champions League, FA Cup and Europa League during his time at Stamford Bridge.
