Europen powerhouses Real began sniffing around the centreback in January when it became apparent he wouldn’t sign a new deal and have moved quickly to land their man.

An excerpt of a Chelsea statement read: “We bid farewell to Antonio Rudiger as he departs Stamford Bridge with his Chelsea contract expiring, bringing to a close his five trophy-filled years with the club.

“The German defender has left the Blues to join Real Madrid, having played a huge role in our successes in recent seasons. Rudiger lifted the FA Cup, Champions League, Europa League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup with Chelsea, playing a crucial role in all those triumphs at the heart of our defence.”

Rudiger, 29, has inked a four-year deal with last season’s Champions League winners and will officially be presented as a Real player on June 20.

A Real statement read: “Real Madrid C.F. have reached an agreement to sign Antonio Rüdiger, who joins the club on a four-year deal.

“Rudiger will be unveiled as a Real Madrid player on Monday 20 June at 12 noon (CET) at Real Madrid City.

“Following his unveiling, he will address the media.”
