Rudiger wants to follow Alaba’s lead

Antonio Rudiger wants to become next summer’s David Alaba. Chelsea‘s German centre-back has decided not to renew his contract at Stamford Bridge and is planning on leaving the European champions on a free transfer at the end of the season.

As such, the 28-year-old’s representatives have been sounding out a number of Europe’s top clubs ahead of a potential move, with both Bayern Munich and Real Madrid the clubs that appeal most to the defender.

Rudiger‘s deal will expire at the end of the current campaign, and Chelsea‘s attempts to renew his contract have fallen short so far. The club have offered 6.5 million euros a year for him to renew, but he is asking for 10 million euros, leaving a resolution still far way.

Now Rudiger‘s agent is working to find a solution elsewhere. Having been at Chelsea since 2018, when he signed from Roma, the German has made huge strides forward in recent seasons and particularly since Thomas Tuchel‘s arrival.

Real Madrid are on the lookout for a centre-back for 2022/23 and although their focus remains on younger players, they are always attentive to market opportunities in the form of players becoming free agents, as was seen with their signing of Alaba this past summer.

Los Blancos will have to weigh things up financially, but they could well start sounding Rudiger out to join Alaba, Nacho Fernandez and Eder Militao at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu next summer.
