According to the ongoing report, Antonio Rudiger, Chelsea defender, is expected to join Juventus this summer on a four-year deal.
Rudiger’s Chelsea contract will expire at the end of the season, and the club will be unable to give him a new deal due to UK government sanctions imposed on club owner Roman Abramovich.
Rudiger was said to be exploring a contract extension at Chelsea before the suspension, where he has established himself as a great player after joining the Champions League champions for £31 million from Roma in 2017.
Newcastle, Manchester United, Bayern Munich, and Real Madrid have all been linked with a bid for the Germany international, but he has now allegedly decided to join Juventus.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the 29-year-old has agreed to join the Serie A champions.
Rudiger will reportedly sign a four-year contract with Juventus because he prefers them over both Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, and he will earn roughly £5.4 million each season, according to the source.
Juventus, on the other hand, has previously dominated the free transfer market. Andrea Pirlo, Aaron Ramsey, Dani Alves, and Sami Khedira are among the players who have been signed by the Old Lady without having to pay a price in the past.
