Among the five players, it is Rudiger's situation proving to be the most complicated, with reports claiming attempts to tie down the centre-back have not gone according to plan.

The German is said to be demanding around £200,000 a week, wages Chelsea are unwilling to sanction.

This has seen talks around his future break down significantly even as PSG and Real Madrid wait on the wings to land him on a free.

Skipper Cesar Azpilicueta is also in the final 10 months of his contract but has since hinted at penning a renewal.
