Antonio Rudiger Makes Chelsea Transfer Revelation And Names His ‘Untouchable’ Real Madrid Legend Antonio Rudiger says he would not have left Chelsea for any other … Read more
Antonio Rudiger was known for being slightly adventurous during his time with Chelsea and has already lived up to his reputation since joining Real Madrid this summer. Former Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has gone viral on social media after repeating a trick that he became known for at Stamford Bridge. The German defender sealed a free transfer to Real Madrid earlier this summer, having seen his contract in West London come to an end. He has featured three times for Los Blancos, making a brief cameo against Eintracht Frankfurt as the Spaniards lifted the UEFA Super Cup, before starting their first La Liga match of the season against Almeria. It was his most recent outing that saw him garner plenty of attention on social media, however. With the reigning Spanish champions taking on Celta Vigo, Rudiger was initially named on the bench but, with the side 4-1 up, he was handed an opportunity off the bench. During the 85th minute of the game, he was pictured sprinting forward towards the halfway line before exchanging passes with Karim Benzema and Fede Valverde. The German international was not finished there and elected to sprint down the right flank, where he was picked out by a delicious through-ball. Reaching the penalty area, he fed Benzema and aimed to get on the end of the Frenchman’s flick. Rudiger set his sights for goal, only to see his shot charged down, leaving the commentator at the time chuckling during the live broadcast. Will Antonio Rudiger be a success at Real Madrid? Share your thoughts in the comments below! The 29-year-old will certainly be keen to end his wait for his first Real Madrid strike having garnered a reputation as a goalscoring centre-back during his stint with Chelsea. He scored five goals in all during his final season at Stamford Bridge, three of those coming in the Premier League. He even scored against new side Real Madrid last term as Chelsea staged an impressive Champions League quarter-final comeback at the Santiago Bernabeu having lost the first leg at home. The Spanish side eventually reached the last four after extra-time and went on to win the title against the Blues‘ Premier League rivals Liverpool. Rudiger will hope to have another opportunity to impress Real boss Carlo Ancelotti in the next La Liga outing against Espanyol. Whilst the German has enjoyed life at the Santiago Bernabeu thus far, Chelsea are yet to find his direct replacement. They did sign Kalidou Koulibaly – who was sent off against Leeds on Sunday – from Napoli and continue to chase the signing of Leicester star Wesley Fofana. The Frenchman was left out of the side that lost to Southampton on Saturday. Tuchel will be keen for more defensive recruits after seeing his side turn in a disastrous showing at Elland Road. The Blues found themselves 2-0 down at the break in Yorkshire as Brendan Aaronson and Rodrigo found the net for Leeds – the first goal came after a howler from goalkeeper Edouard Mendy. Jack Harrison then made the scoreline even worse for Chelsea after the break.
Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United could line up with a slightly different side after the transfer window compared to the one that started the 4-0 thumping at Brentford. Manchester United have made their fourth signing of the summer as Casemiro arrives from Real Madrid. The 30-year-old holding midfielder is moves to Old Trafford after United agreed a fee on Friday night. He is the fourth player to arrive through the Old Trafford doors this summer after Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez all joined the club, with the latter making the £55m move from Erik ten Hag’s former club Ajax. There are expected to be more players arriving at United before the transfer window slams shut, especially after they lost their opening two games of the season against Brighton and Brentford. With just under two weeks to go, the Red Devils are chasing another midfielder, an attacker who can play anywhere across the front three, a second-choice goalkeeper and a right-back. If United get at least three more signings in those positions over the line, then Ten Hag can line-up with close to his ideal starting line-up for either their trip to Leicester City on September 1, or at home to Arsenal three days later. Despite making a glaring mistake against the Bees last time out, David De Gea is expected to continue as United’s No.1 for the time being, although Ten Hag wants to bring in a second-choice ‘keeper this month. Where will Man Utd finish this season? Let us know in the comments below! At the back, Diogo Dalot is set to continue at right-back despite Ten Hag’s attempt to strengthen in that area. Sergino Dest has been linked with a move to the Red Devils this month, but it doesn’t seem like that will happen until at least next summer, with United keen to bolster other areas first. Harry Maguire and Martinez make up the centre-back pairing, although Raphael Varane could easily replace one of them, with Malacia at left-back. The midfield is the area where Ten Hag is desperate to change following their dismal start to the season. Champions League winner Casemiro would sit at the base of the three, with Frenkie de Jong as the No.8 and Bruno Fernandes just in front. The saga surrounding De Jong’s possible switch to United has dragged along all summer, but the Red Devils haven’t given up on their approach of the midfielder. He is still their priority target for that position and Ten Hag wants to reunite with his former Ajax colleague. Antony could be another new face through the doors at United after the Brazilian attacker refused to train with Ajax as he tries to force through a move to Old Trafford. If the 22-year-old signs, he would surely play on the right of a front three alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho, with Marcus Rashford used as an impact substitute.
