Rudiger in line for Chelsea recall, Mail say

Antonio Rudiger is reportedly in line for a recall to the Chelsea side.

Rudiger has been left out by boss Frank Lampard and was available for a loan move during the recent transfer window.

The defender stayed at Stamford Bridge amid doubts over his long-term future.

But the Daily Mail say Lampard is ready to reintegrate Rudiger following discussions between the pair.

The newspaper say there were “heart-to-talk” talks with Rudiger, that “it is understood he will be involved in first-team matters with more regularity” and that “there is a growing sense he will be afforded more playing time in the coming weeks.”

The Mail also reports that Chelsea have decided to train in Russia ahead of their Champions League game against Krasnodar.

Bayern Munich recently cancelled a training session there because of the country’s rising number of coronavirus cases.
