Antonio Rudiger has said that he is over the moon to have signed for Real Madrid.
The central defender has joined La Liga and UEFA Champions League winners Madrid on a free transfer after leaving Chelsea this summer.
The 29-year-old Germany international centre-back is pleased to have swapped Chelsea for Madrid.
90min quote Rudiger as saying: “It’s true that there were many conversations. But if I am honest, I only considered Madrid or Chelsea.
“The first time I heard about Madrid…imagine. It was like…wow. The first time they contacted me was in September or October, I believe. A club like this doesn’t call very often and it was amazing.”
Madid can be backed at 6/5 on Betfair to win the La Liga title again next season.
