Antonio Rüdiger has made it clear he will not 'rush' into signing a new contract with Chelsea.

The German international is out of contract next summer and has been linked with a host of European top clubs, including Bayern München.

So far, however, Rüdiger claims he has only held talks with Chelsea.

"For me, this will now be the most important decision of my professional career, so I won't rush anything," Rüdiger told SID.

"Personally, however, I have not yet spoken with any other club than Chelsea."

The 28-year-old added that he last talked to 'The Blues' about his future less than two months ago.

According to Bild, Rüdiger is open to a move to Bayern, who see him as a potential replacement for Niklas Süle.
