In recent years, one of the best transfers of Real Madrid has been, without a doubt, David Alaba. Without paying a single euro for the transfer from club to club, Concha Espina’s side took over the services of the Austrian defender and now the white fans are enjoying his talent. As expected, the change of team has not made Bayern Munich happy, his old team. According to the Spanish newspaper Don Balon, the Bundesliga champion is thirsty for revenge against President Florentino Pérez and has set his sights on one of the great goals of summer 2022: Antonio Rüdiger of Chelsea.
According to the aforementioned source, Bayern Munich has serious intentions to incorporate the central defender for next season. Especially knowing that in a few months he will end his contract at Stamford Bridge and can reach zero cost as he is a free agent.
As in Real Madrid, the leader of the current Bundesliga wants to seduce Rüdiger with a five-year contract, transfer bonus and a salary that is quite competitive in the market. If he signed for the Bavarian team, the international with Germany would be one of the best paid in the squad.
The 2020 Champions League champion is close to losing Niklas Süle, so he sees the need to sign a guarantee center like Rüdiger. The Berlin-born would have, in addition to the approval of the board, the approval of coach Julian Nagelsmann.
Conversations with Real Madrid
As revealed by The Independent, the German defender would have already reached an “informal agreement” with the white box to reinforce it in the next season. The brother and the player’s representative would have been in charge of sealing the agreement with the institution of Concha Espina.
The agent of the Chelsea footballer would have met with the Madrid spheres a few weeks ago and they would have reached this agreement that is not official, but that would be closed in January, in the middle of the winter transfer market. With less than six months on his contract, Rüdiger can talk to everyone.
Thus the things, Carlo Ancelotti would have many variants in defense with Antonio. For example, you could play with a line of three in the background. The German would be placed in the center of the rear, Alaba on the left and Miltao on the right. His physical capacity would allow him to reach aid to his teammates and to the center of the field, without losing defensive balance.
However, this option seems highly unlikely. Real Madrid have rarely employed three-center schemes throughout their history, and Ancelotti has already insisted that the only possible formation for the team is 4-3-3.
Antonio Rüdiger, according to ‘Transfermarkt’, a portal specialized in soccer player appraisals, is valued at 28 million euros. The also former AS Roma and Stuttgart player can act as a right-back when the situation calls for it.
