Chelsea, United, not for Rudiger

Roma fullback Antonio Rudiger has played down speculation linking him with a move to the Premier League.

It has been reported that both Manchester United and Chelsea are interested in the 23-year-old.

But, speaking ahead of Roma’s Europa League clash with Austria Vienna, Rudiger says getting back to full fitness is his top priority.

“There’s a lot of talk about changes in the squad, but I’m really happy to play for Roma. I’m not bothered about transfer rumours,” he said.

“In the end, I’m happy to be healthy again. It wasn’t easy but now I can play again. I’m ready to play [on Thursday]. I hope for the best, but it’s the coach’s decision in the end.”
