Antonio Rüdiger

Spanish giants Real Madrid have confirmed the signing of Antonio Rüdiger on a free transfer on a four-year deal.

Rudiger will leave Stamford Bridge after five years having turned down a lucrative new deal and choosing to join the European champions on a free transfer.

A statement on Chelsea’s website read: “We bid farewell to Antonio Rudiger as he departs Stamford Bridge with his Chelsea contract expiring, bringing to a close his five trophy-filled years with the club.

“The German defender has left the Blues to join Real Madrid, having played a huge role in our successes in recent seasons. Rudiger lifted the FA Cup, Champions League, Europa League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup with Chelsea, playing a crucial role in all those triumphs at the heart of our defence.
