Roma defender Antonio Rudiger says he is not interested in rumours linking him with a transfer move to Chelsea or Manchester United.
Reports have suggested that Jose Mourinho is a keen admirer of the 23-year-old Germany international and could launch a January bid
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has also been credited with an interest in the centre-back, who made his first appearance of the season in the win over Sassuolo last Wednesday following cruciate ligament damage that kept him out of Euro 2016.
“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,” Antonio Rudiger 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.”
Rudiger’s return comes as a huge positive for Spalletti, with Roma having been hit by a raft of injuries in defensive positions.
