Done deal: Real Madrid official sign Antonio Rudiger

Antonio Rudiger, a German center-back, will be a madridista for the next four seasons, according to Real Madrid and Chelsea. Rudiger will be introduced as a Real Madrid player on Monday, according to the club’s official announcement.

Rudiger will be expected to play in the middle of the team’s defensive line with Eder Militao, relegating David Alaba to the left-wing. As long as the three defenders described above are healthy, Ferland Mendy will most likely be a backup.

Rudiger is a seasoned defender who has played a key role for Chelsea over the years, so his addition will add to Real Madrid’s defensive depth. Los Blancos will now be able to field a world-class defensive line even if one of their players is injured, something they haven’t been able to do all season.

Rudiger, like David Alaba a year ago, comes as a free agent.
