Real Madrid keen on landing Chelsea defender
Real Madrid are preparing a contract offer for Antonio Rudiger, who is likely to leave Chelsea at the end of the season.
The German has seven months left on his contract, and he has no plans of renewing his stay due to salary differences.
The hierarchy are reluctant to meet his £200,000-a-week demands, and the centre-back is willing to move on due to this.
Madrid are keeping a close watch on the proceedings, and Goal claims that they are lining up a pre-contract proposal.
The club can open talks with Rudiger at the turn of the year, but discussions are already underway with his representative.
Madrid are keen on adding more experience to their backline after parting ways with Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane.
Rudiger is seen as an ideal purchase with his ball playing qualities while he is also a goalscoring threat from set-pieces.
Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Bayern Munich are also in the running to sign the former AS Roma centre-back.
