The Chelsea fanbase has been treated to another set of disappointing news over one of their star player's future at the Stamford Bridge. This is after German defender Antonio Rüdiger made his preference known on which of the potential moves he would most prefer should he leave Chelsea.

According to the 28-year-old, whose contract runs out in the summer and is yet to sign a new deal at the club, a move to Real Madrid would be prioritized over one to PSG should he move away from the West London club.

In a report by French media outlet Footmercato, the Germany international has received proposals from both the La Liga and Ligue 1 giants. PSG is said to have offered Rüdiger a net annual sum of £7m, an amount higher than what the Spanish giants have tabled to the former AS Roma man.

Toni has had his biggest resurgence under manager Thomas Tuchel, making him a regular starter and a crucial part that glues the team's backline together. He has successfully teamed up with Thiago Silva to form an incredible defensive unit at the Stamford Bridge. His improved form since Frank Lampard's sacking has seen fans and the Chelsea hierarchy call for a new long-term deal to tie him down, but the German has stalled on Marina Granovskaia's offer made at the beginning of the season.

Rüdiger rejected a £140,000-a-week offer from Chelsea because it is at least £60,000 short of the £200,000-a-week he's eyeing. With the defender turning 29in March, his next contract could be the biggest in his career and is being careful with it.
