Rudiger to Real Madrid a ‘done deal’

Spanish football journalist Alvaro Montero recently told Sky Sports News that Antonio Rudiger’s free transfer from Chelsea to Real Madrid this summer is a “done deal”.

On April 26, he said: “I asked someone inside the club [Real] yesterday and he started laughing and said, ‘Yes, it’s a done deal’.

“Things can change but there is a deal between the player and the club. I believe when he scored at the Bernabeu [for Chelsea this month] he was already a Real Madrid player.

“It was his desire and if nothing strange happens he’s going to play for Real Madrid next season.”
