Rudiger Decided to Leave Chelsea for Real Madrid on a Free Transfer Motivated by Punishment

Antonio Rudiger has claimed that the fines imposed on Chelsea were not why he did not extend his contract with the club. The Blues defender discussed Rudiger future following the club’s FA Cup final loss at Wembley, with a transfer to Real Madrid on the cards. The Blues were defeated on penalties by Liverpool in the FA Cup final, falling short following misses from Cesar Azpilicueta and Mason Mount. With a free transfer move to Real Madrid looming, the Germany international talked about Rudiger departure and how he has cherished his five years at Stamford Bridge.

Losing Rudiger will be a significant loss for Thomas Tuchel, whose defense will be weak by Andreas Christensen’s free move to Barcelona. This summer, Chelsea’s new owners will be forced to invest considerably in defensive reinforcements. Jules Koundé of Sevilla is a long-term aim, while Leicester’s Wesley Fofana has a link. The three consortiums interested in purchasing Chelsea expect to learn this week which of them has been chosen as the club’s preferred bidder. Raine, the US bank in charge of the sale, evaluates bids from companies led by Todd Boehly, Sir Martin Broughton, and Stephen Pagliuca.

How did Rudiger describe his future?

“I do not want to go too deeply into matters. There was a possibility, but the penalties were not the issue,” Rudiger told reporters.

The German international said he liked his time in west London, “It’s been five years with typical ups and downs.” There were some positives, but I was hoping for a better finish with a cup victory, so I’m even more disappointed.

“It involves both parties. Chelsea has been kind to me, and I have been wonderful to them. My family and I are grateful. Here, I became a man. My children were born here and all. “London, particularly Chelsea, will always have a special place for me.” Rudiger said.

What did Antonio have to say about the FA Cup final loss?

Chelsea has now lost five consecutive domestic championships, the latest two against Liverpool on penalties. “I believe it was a great game, similar to the Carabao Cup final. We had opportunities, as did they. However, we know that penalties are usually a game of chance, and we lost. It is ultimately about winning, not about the following season. The game was about the present, and it was up for grabs. Unluckily, we did not win.

“It is always difficult to determine whether we are fortunate or unfortunate. It’s the third time I’ve lost the FA Cup final, so you can’t shout “unfortunate, unlucky, unlucky” every time. It is a difficult choice for me to make. There are occasions when we do not have a response to these queries. “I do not have a response.”
