Real Madrid confirm the signing of Antonio Rudiger on a free transfer 

June 3, 2022



Real Madrid have confirmed the signing of Antonio Rudiger on a free transfer after the defender’s contract at Chelsea expired. 

The 29-year-old German defender reportedly signed a four-year deal at the Bernabeu until the summer of 2026.  His contract with the LaLiga side will be worth in the region of £315,000-per-week.

He will also net a signing-on fee that will take his wage significantly high.

Sources close to the deal have also indicated that Rudiger’s release clause at Madrid will be €400m (£342m).

The German said: ‘I’m proud to announce that I’ll be joining Real Madrid. I’m super excited for all the challenges ahead and can’t wait to play my first games for this huge club.’

Rudiger will be presented as a Real Madrid player on Monday, June 20 at midday.

In five years at Stamford Bridge, the Germany international won the FA Cup, Europa League, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup. He also won the Champions League last season having been brought back into the side by Thomas Tuchel following the sacking of Frank Lampard. 

He joined the Blues from Roma for £29m in 2017 when the west London club were managed by Antonio Conte.
