(Video): Antonio Rudiger’s “family” chat hints at staying with Chelsea

Antonio Rudiger has long seemed like he’s leaving Chelsea on a free transfer this summer. He’s never confirmed it, but his reluctance to deny it tells you everything you need to know.

But the last few weeks have seen a few hints – from Rudi and from his coach – that hint in the other direction. His latest interview is all about “family” and how his kids were born and are growing up in London.

Could this be the start of a gentle trend towards a new deal for Rudi? We sure hope so.
