“We gave everything me and the club but we could not fight anymore because of the actions,” Tuchel explained.

“Without the sanctions we would at least be able to carry on fighting, but our hands are tied.”

Chelsea are prevented from signing new players, and even renewing contracts with their existing squad is far from straightforward.

Media report says Rüdiger’s team have been discussing potential moves with top clubs such as Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus.

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich could also be interested in him as a replacement for the departing Niklas Süle.
