Antonio Rudiger could be heading to Real Madrid as a free agent ahead of the summer window, MySportDab reports.
The defender has been enjoying life at Chelsea where he already won every possible title with the club.
Real Madrid might be completing a move for him this summer window which things aren’t looking that good for the Premier League side.
Chelsea have seen many offers turned down by Antonio Rudiger and his representatives who were looking for more.
Unfortunately the Premier League clubs was hit with a ban by the UK government over the owner being a Russian.
This ban has seen them unable to sign any new contract with their players who are running out of their current deal with the club.
After Chelsea victory against West Ham United, Thomas Tuchel confirmed Antonio Rudiger has decided to leave the club when the season comes to an end.
Here Is What The Manager Said:
“Rüdiger will leave as we can’t compete because of the sanctions.
“But now we don’t take it personally. It’s his decision”.
With that being confirmed, Chelsea is now confirmed to lose two defenders in Andreas Christensen and the German.
Latest reports coming from Fabrizio Romano has also started that an agreement has been reach for Antonio Rudiger move.
Here Is What Was Said:
“Real Madrid have reached verbal agreement with Antonio Rüdiger.
“Contract not signed yet – but Real Madrid are now closing on Rüdiger deal on a free: here we go soon!.
“It’s gonna be a long-term deal. Final details to be discussed soon, before signing the contract.
The contract is expected to be a long one which the defender might retire after seeing off the deal with the Spanish side.
Chelsea are left with just Thiago Silva, Malang Sarr and Trevoh Chalobah who are all natural defenders.
It is expected of them to dig deep in the transfer market ahead of the new season which they will be looking to bring in new players.
