In the future, Real Madrid will follow a course of radical austerity. According to Spanish media reports, the club intends to focus on young talents in the future when it comes to commitments.
When it comes to established stars, Los Blancos strive for free transfer commitments. This is also the case for Antonio Rüdiger (28), whose contract with Chelsea will expire in the summer.

The Spanish newspaper “ABC” reports that Rüdiger, along with Kylian Mbappé (22), is Real Madrid’s dream player. This should make FC Bayern pay special attention, as the Munich team is also interested in signing the 47-time national player.
SPORT BILD reported in September that the Munich team had contacted Sahr Senesie, Rüdiger’s adviser and half-brother, and expressed interest in the player!
But Real also takes out its probes. Because Sergio Ramos (35, with PSG) and Raphael Varane (28, with Manchester United), two great defensive stars, left the club in the summer and the defense seems anything but stable this season despite the signing of David Alaba (29), coach Carlo Ancelotti wants reinforcements.
Rüdiger is playing a good season at Chelsea with coach Thomas Tuchel, and was recently ennobled by Rio Ferdinand as “the best defender in the Premier League”. He has not yet extended his contract.
