The German defender who spent 5 years in England after joining Chelsea from AS Roma in 2017 has now departed for Spain after talks of a contract renewal broke down and the club had to deal with an unprecedented situation where they could not hold contract talks due to the UK government’s sanctions.
The defender announced the completion of this move on his social media platforms and some of his Chelsea team mates have reacted to it.
Rudiger was one of the most popular players in the Blue‘s dressing room so it comes as no surprise to see how his mates were treating him.
