In recent seasons, it has become increasingly normal to see players run down their contracts at clubs and turn down offers of renewals. It doesn’t always end in them leaving, but David Alaba was just one example last summer who got the move he wanted without Real Madrid having to pay a transfer fee.

Now it’s Antonio Rudiger who is looking to make that same move to Real Madrid on a free transfer, this time from ChelseaLos Blancos are ready to welcome him with open arms.

Rudiger‘s Chelsea contract expires on June 30 and he is yet to renew, nor does he intend to. He’s not alone, but he’s the standout case at Stamford Bridge. He’ll be free to talk to other clubs from January 1, and Real Madrid are aware of his situation.

Unlike at Bayern with Alaba, nobody at Chelsea has commented on Rudiger‘s situation. The Bavarians confirmed his exit a year before it happened, but the European champions have kept quiet.

Bayern, curiously, are also interested. Some German outlets have said that they would be willing to meet Rudiger‘s salary demands.
