Antonio Rudiger, a defender from Chelsea, has joined Real Madrid. The player has finally struck an agreement with Los Blancos to sign a contract extension until the summer of 2026. While Chelsea had hoped to keep Rudiger, the player recently said that he would be leaving the club.
The German defender has been an important member of the team, winning multiple championships with the club, including the Champions League. Rudiger, who joined Chelsea from Roma in the summer of 2017, has been an important player for Thomas Tuchel and his predecessors. Rudiger’s deal with the Blues expires this summer, with the star preparing to formally sign the contract as soon as the summer transfer market opens.
According to recent sources, Rudiger apparently decided to join Real Madrid in April, despite the fact that the agreement was signed in May. Despite having won the La Liga title weeks ago, Real Madrid will make the formal announcement at the conclusion of the current season.
