ANTONIO RUDIGER is set to QUADRUPLE his wages and become one of the world's highest paid players if he leaves Chelsea in the summer, according to reports.
The German has six months left on his Blues deal and it's said to be looking more and more likely that he'll leave.
Rudiger has some of Europe's top clubs waiting in the wings to hand him a bumper new deal, according to the Mail.
Real Madrid, Paris Saint Germain, Bayern Munich and Juventus are all said to be prepared to make offers.
The centre-back can sign a pre-contract arrangement with foreign clubs in January.
Rudiger currently earns around £100,000-a-week.
And any new deal he signs is expected to match Juve star Matthijs de Ligt.
The Dutchman earns £400K-A-WEEK.
