Football – Mercato – Real Madrid
Just a week ago, Real Madrid formalized the signing of Antonio Rüdiger, who is out of contract on June 30 with Chelsea. This Thursday, the German international released all his truths about his transfer to the White House, expressing his immense happiness to wear the merengue colors from the next season.
After five seasons of good and loyal service to Chelsea, Antonio Rüdiger will wear the colors of real Madrid upon recovery. At the end of the contract on June 30 with the Blues of Thomas Tuchel, the German international has decided to engage freely and free of charge in favor of the White House this summer. Indeed, the club led by Carlo Ancelotti formalized just a week ago the €0 transfer of Antonio Rüdiger, who is signing up for the next four years. Fulfilled by his departure to the Real Madrid, the 29-year-old defender got totally fired up during an interview with brand.
‘I only considered offers from Madrid and Chelsea’
” My signature ? I’m very proud and at the moment I don’t realize what that means yet, because I haven’t been to Madrid yet. I will go with all my family as soon as this gathering with Germany is over. At that time, I think I will really realize what signing for Real Madrid means. (Is it clear to you that this is the biggest step in your career?) I think in football, like in life, there are always chapters, and this is a new one for me. Obviously, this new chapter is very important, it’s a big step for me. It’s probably the biggest of my entire career. How many offers have I had? In this period, it’s true that there have been a lot of conversations, but if I’m honest, I only considered (the offers) from Madrid and Chelsea. (When Real Madrid calls you, what’s the first thing you think of? The first time I heard of Madrid… imagine. It was like: ‘wow’! The first time they contacted me, it was in September or October, I think I remember. A club like this does not call often and it was incredible. If I like the Santiago Bernabeu? Yes, yes, of course. I’ve already seen pictures of what it’s going to look like when it’s finished and it will be much, much better. I can’t wait to play there”rejoiced Antonio Rudiger, before adding a layer, expressing his immense happiness to evolve under the leadership of Carlo Ancelotti and alongside Karim Benzema, Toni Kroos and Company.

“The first time they contacted me was in September or October”
“If Carlo Ancelotti said he wanted me after the clash Real Madrid – Chelsea? Yes… Everyone knows who Ancelotti is in the world of football. He is a top coach and he proved it again by winning La Liga and the Champions League. I don’t need to say much about him and I can only say that it’s a great honor for me that a coach like Ancelotti wants me. I’ve watched it since I was a kid on TV. It’s an honor. If I spoke with Carlo Ancelotti? Yes, I spoke to him. It was a welcome conversation, when everything was already closed. He told me that everyone is very happy to have me in Madrid and that makes me very happy. It’s clear that Ancelotti is one of the people who make Real Madrid very strong, but he’s not the only one. There’s (Karim) Benzema, Toni Kroos, (Luka) Modric, Casemiro… He told me they were all very happy and that makes me proud. And it also makes me see that I have worked well for the past three years. It gives me a lot of motivation to do even better at Real Madrid. If there is additional pressure because of the 14th Champions League won by Real Madrid? Yes, it’s the pressure, but that’s the story of Real Madrid. They are used to winning and their mentality is this: winning. But their winning mentality goes with my character. (…) I will give everything in every game and in every situation. I can promise it. I’m going to give 100% every day.”has developped Antonio Rudiger.
