Real Madrid sign Antonio Rudiger from Chelsea

The reigning Spanish and European champions Real Madrid have signed  German international defender Antonio Rudiger from Chelsea, the two clubs confirmed on Thursday.

The 29-year-old centre-back, who was out of contract at Chelsea, has signed a four-year deal in the Spanish capital, Real announced.

 Rudiger will be expected to play alongside Eder Militao in the center of the team’s defensive line, something which will likely move David Alaba to the left flank. It’s likely that Ferland Mendy will be a backup as long as the three defenders mentioned above stay healthy.

Rudiger is an experienced defender who has been a crucial player for Chelsea all these years, so his presence will increase Real Madrid’s depth on defense. Los Blancos will now have the chance to deploy a world-class defensive line even when one of their starters is injured, something that was missed all season long.
