Bayern Munich's chief refuses to rule out a move for Antonio Rudiger

Hasan Salihamidzic, Bayern Munich's CEO, has refused to rule out a move for Chelsea centre-back Antonio Rudiger.

The Germany international's contract with the European champions is coming to an end in the next 12 months, and he has reportedly opted not to prolong his stay in West London.

As a result, Bayern Munich is said to be interested in bringing Rudiger back to Germany, and sporting director Salihamidzic has responded to the speculation.

Bayern's manager, speaking to DAZN, said: "It's not acceptable to discuss players who play for other clubs. In the press conference, Julian [Nagelsmann] mentioned that about him, but he is a coach who sees a lot of players, so why shouldn't he analyze an international and discuss his strengths?

"At center-back, [Bayern] is extremely well-equipped. We've done a great job of strengthening ourselves and bringing in a top talent in Upamecano. We have Lucas Hernandez, Tanguy Nianzou, and Benjamin Pavard available to play inside - we are really well staffed.

"We didn't have much time because I had a Friday appointment. We haven't seen each other in a long time, but we do communicate a lot about players."

Rudiger has started every game for Chelsea this season, and the 28-year-old has been linked with a move to Juventus.
