Real Madrid is eager to fill this gap. Rafael Varan’s move to Manchester United. And the conversion of Sergio Ramos to Paris Saint-Germain. Carlo Ancelotti is unhappy with his current defensive prowess and is looking for an experienced player to join David Alaba at the Las Blancos defense center this summer.
Chelsea’s center-back Antonio Rodrguez has emerged as the number one target for the La Liga giants and Ancelotti is keen to bring the German to the Santiago Bernabeu. The 28-year-old is out of contract next summer and has not agreed to an extension with the Blues despite talks in recent weeks.
According to the Spanish publication Marca.They want to take advantage of the real situation when the winter transfer window opens in January and have an open discussion with the players’ representatives. Rodrگرguez will be able to negotiate with clubs outside England and agree to an agreement in advance for next summer.
Rodiger’s experience is not the only attraction for the Spanish capital club. The fact that they can save a lot of money on transfer fees, and sign it for free, is another big consideration. The real ones have their finances in mind, and they are playing smart in the transfer market.
The Spanish giants took a similar approach to signing a free transfer from Bayern Munich to David Alaba when the defender did not agree to a new deal with the German giants last season. He signed a pre-contract with the La Liga club and joined them after his contract with Byron expired in July.
Chelsea want to retain Rodrگرguez, who has become a key member of Thomas Tachel’s first team. However, his latest offer is worth 125 125,000 a week, which has been rejected by Rodiger and his agents.
The German international will have no shortage of fans if he decides to leave Stamford Bridge next summer, as AC Milan, Juventus and Bayern are also interested in signing a free transfer with him. Rodiger is expected to keep his options open and review every offer before deciding to stay in England or decide on new pastures.
