Rudiger wants Real Madrid transfer
Football Transfer Centre

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger is reportedly keen on joining Real Madrid on a free transfer this summer.

The German has entered the final six months of his contract, and he is reluctant to put pen-to-paper on a new deal.

Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid have been linked with him, and Foot Mercato claims that the former have made a contract offer.

Les Parisiens are ready to pay him around £115,000-a-week in addition to a significant signing-on bonus to join them over the summer.

The central defender is likely to reject their proposal as he has his sights on joining Madrid. He is prepared to accept a lesser wage package.

Rudiger has been an instrumental player for the Blues since Thomas Tuchel was appointed as the head coach in January last year.

Tuchel is obviously keen on keeping him at the club, but there has been a disagreement between the player and board over the salary.

He is currently earning around £90,000-a-week. The Blues are reluctant to accept his demands which stand at around £200,000-a-week.
