Tuchel confirms Rüdiger will leave Chelsea in summer

Germany defender Antonio Rüdiger will leave Chelsea at the end of the season after turning down the offer of a new contract, manager Thomas Tuchel confirmed on Sunday.

“The situation is that he wants to leave the club,” Tuchel said after their 1-0 English Premier League (EPL) win over West Ham.

“He informed me of this in a private talk.

“It is disappointing. We will miss him a lot.”

Tuchel said competing for his signature was made harder by UK government sanctions imposed on the club owned by Russian Roman Abramovich as a result of the invasion in Ukraine.

“We gave everything —- me and the club —- but we could not fight anymore because of the actions,” Tuchel explained.
