Chelsea defender Rudiger agrees lucrative long-term contract with Real Madrid

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has agreed to join Real Madrid on a free transfer in the summer.

The Germany international rejected the chance to stay at Stamford Bridge beyond this season.

He will officially join Real on July 1 on a four-year deal understood to be worth €400,000 (£342,000) per week, per Sky Sports.

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel confirmed last month that Rudiger would not be re-signing with the club.

A number of clubs across Europe were interested in Rudiger, including Barcelona, PSG and Manchester United.

But the 29-year-old was flattered by Real's interest and will now move to the Spanish capital.
