Although Rüdiger is a regular in the schemes of Thomas Tuchel, the demands of the 29-year-old German center back when it comes to renewing his contract, which expires next summer, have led him to put an end to his time at Stamford Bridge.

This was confirmed by Tuchel in a statement to 'Sky Sports': "He informed me several days ago. We have given him everything for several months, now we enter a situation where we can no longer fight. Tony has said he wants to leave the club. Our hands are tied. This is his decision."

Real Madrid was chosen by Rüdiger

And so, the former Roma player went from negotiating the possibility of staying one more season with the Blues to having a step and a half inside the Santiago Bernabeu, something that has already been confirmed by the expert in the transfer market Fabrizio Romano.

“Real Madrid have reached verbal agreement with Antonio Rüdiger. Contract not signed yet - but Real Madrid are now closing on Rüdiger deal on a free: here we go soon! It’s gonna be a long-term deal. Final details to be discussed soon, before signing the contract.

Rüdiger's requirements are high

A long-term agreement that the Club Blanco and the player are discussing since the economic issue is the most delicate when it comes to reaching a successful conclusion. Because the reason that has led the German international to reject all the renewal proposals of the English has been precisely the economic one. 

Rüdiger's demands are high, to the point that he has even rejected a salary of 12.2 million euros per season at Chelsea. Although the British club was sure that with this offer on the table the response of its star would be positive, the highly-rated defender has not hesitated to reject it to put an end to his six long seasons at Chelsea, a team with which he accumulated 196 official games, 12 goals, and three assists. 

However, there are still a few details to discuss before Rüdiger signs a contract with Madrid, who have put the former Stuttgart man's name on their list of priorities. If his demands are not exorbitant, he will become the new player of the Merengues this summer.
