Real Madrid confirm Rudiger signing on four-year deal


Real Madrid have confirmed the long-awaited signing of Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger on a four-year deal.

The 29-year-old will move to the Bernabeu on a free transfer after he turned down the Blues' attempts to renew his contract.

Rushhoursport  reported last month Rudiger was set to join Real after choosing the newly-crowned European champions over a host of other elite clubs, including Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Manchester United.

It was reported at the time that the Germany international's new deal would be worth €400,000 (£340,000) per week.

Real say they will present Rudiger as their player at a ceremony on June 20

Writing on Twitter, he 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."

Chelsea added: "Chelsea Football Club thanks Toni for his contribution to our success over the last five years and wishes him well in his future career
