After featuring in their Champions League triumph last season, Rudiger has entered the final year of his deal at Stamford Bridge and is said to have turned down a number of offers in search of a higher wage.
The German reportedly expressed his desire to be one of the highest earners in Thomas Tuchel's side, giving the Blues a tough decision to make, and European giants Bayern Munich and Juventus are now circling.
According to The Mirror, the two sides have prepared £400k-per-week wage packets to offer to the 28-year-old, that would more than triple his current salary.
With his deal expiring at the end of the season, clubs are free to discuss a pre-contract agreement with the centre-back after the turn of the year.
Rudiger featured in 19 Premier League games for the Blues last season, having broken back into the side following Tuchel's appointment, and he has started in each of their first eight competitive games of the new term. body check tags ::
