The 29 years old German defender will depart Stamford Bridge at the end of the season for free to Real Madrid in Spain according to Fabrizio Romano. Although there is news that Andre Christensen is set to depart the team for Barcelona while Cesar Azpilicueta could also be heading to Spain.
Rudiger accepted a four-year contract valid until June 2026. No official announcement made yet about his contract agreement with Los Blancos, but it is certain verbal agreement has been reached.
Antonio Rudiger joined Chelsea in 2017 from Roma and has since then cemented his place in Tuchel’s team, and had fallen apart with Frank Lampard. He has won six trophies with Chelsea including the Champions League and has made a total of 196 appearances.
Chelsea fans in recent months have faced a lot of crises and would hope to return everything to normalcy when the club is acquired by prospective new owners.
