Representatives of Antonio Rüdiger are engaged in discussion with three clubs – PSG, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.
The Chelsea defender is into the last six months of his current deal at Stamford Bridge, and, although manager Thomas Tuchel wants him to stay, it is down to the club and the player to reach an agreement.
And, with a choice of top clubs from which to choose form, Rüdiger is in the driving seat.
Now his agents are reported to be talking hard numbers in terms of signing on fee and weekly wage, and he will either be able to sign a pre-contract agreement this month or before the end of the season if an agreement can be reached.
With the German set to be a free agent at the end of the season, the possibility that another Premier League club could attempt to sign him as well then cannot be ruled out.
