Rudiger’s contract for Stamford Bridge is in the last six months and he will postpone a decision on his future until the end of the season.
Mirror reported that United are also interested in the 28-year-old guy – Ralph Rangnik is a big fan.
United’s interest in Rudiger could also “cast a shadow” on Harry Maguire’s future, the report added.
While Rudiger is reportedly looking for a £ 400,000-a-week deal, United are aware that bringing in someone like Rudiger could cost them more if they make major changes this summer.
Maguire has endured a difficult season at Old Trafford, where his role as club captain was reportedly undermined in United’s dressing room.
Ralph Rangnik has strongly and publicly supported the England national team, but former United defender Gary Polister is confident that he will open his best form.
“He wants to be part of Manchester United’s return to form and become a better team,” Polister told Metro.co.uk.
“He has a captain and responsibility so he will feel he has to lead and he can do it while on the field.
“I don’t think he’s one of those characters to look for a cop like that, so he wants to go through that.
“It brings no mercy to anyone, and it can be seen as a sign of weakness if you are not offended that you have been left behind.
“I’m 100% sure he’ll want to get through this.”
