The latest news from the English press regarding the future of Antonio Rudiger at Chelsea seems to have discouraged moves for him.

It’s been reported this week that manager Frank Lampard had a conversation with the defender, and chose to return him to being an important part of the squad.

The Italian media is covering the news today, and the decision from the Chelsea boss is seen as a bad sign for clubs who wanted Rudiger.

Outlet Milan Live writes that AC Milan expected to make a new attempt to sign the German international in the January transfer window, but will now need to look elsewhere.

The same goes for Roma, who according to the report were about to face the Rossoneri in a fight for Rudiger’s transfer.

The 27-year-old doesn’t have a single appearance for the Blues this season, and the new slant will only prove to be true in case he’s used by Frank Lampard in the upcoming fixtures.

Perhaps Milan and Roma will have a clearer sign of his future by then.
