Rudiger's future remains the subject of much speculation, with the Germany international's deal at Stamford Bridge due to expire next June.
The 28-year-old has insisted that he has not been in talks with any club other than Chelsea, but he is not prepared to rush a decision on his future.
"For me, this will now be the most important decision of my professional career. I haven't spoken to any other club than Chelsea," he told Sky Deutschland.
Rudiger has been a key player for Chelsea since Thomas Tuchel's arrival as head coach, while he has already featured on seven occasions at club level this term, scoring once. body check tags ::
