The German’s future has been up in the air for much of the season, and the increased uncertainty around ownership has only served to further muddy the waters. Speaking after his side’s 1-0 win over West Ham, which Rudiger missed through injury, Thomas Tuchel finally confirmed that one of his stars had decided not to stay.

‘He wants to leave the club. He informed me in a private talk. We gave everything but we could not fight anymore because of the actions’, the Chelsea boss told Football.London.

‘Rüdiger will leave as we can’t compete because of the sanctions. But now we don’t take it personally. It’s his decision’

Real Madrid bound

And now, as per Fabrizio Romano, a move to join Spanish giants Real Madrid is close to being completed for the 28 year old.

The report suggests that Rudi will pen a deal keeping him at the Santiago Bernabeu until 2026, where he will face competition from both David Alaba and Eder Militao to nail down a starting spot.

Rudiger will join fellow centre-back Andreas Christensen in switching Chelsea for Spain in the summer too, though his Danish teammate has agreed to sign for Barcelona rather than Los Blancos.

It means that the pair will now be playing against each other in the biggest game of the Spanish footballing calender, rather than together as they did so often under Thomas Tuchel.
