Tottenham Hotspur want Real Madrid’s Antonio Rudiger?

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly outlined their intentions to move for Real Madrid centre-back Antonio Rudiger, according to a report.

After leaving Chelsea as a free agent at the end of the last season, the Germany international joined Los Blancos, where he has scored two goals in 31 appearances during his first season.

At first, Rudiger found it difficult to secure a regular spot in the backline, with David Alaba and Eder Militao ahead of him. However, due to Ferland Mendy’s injury, Alaba has been shifted to a left-back position, resulting in Rudiger playing the full 90 minutes in seven of Real’s last eight La Liga matches.

As a consequence, Rudiger is expected to start in the first leg of the Champions League last-16 match against Liverpool on Tuesday.

Despite signing a four-year deal at the Bernabeu, the 29-year-old’s future is already under scrutiny, and reports suggest Tottenham Hotspur have identified him as an ideal defensive target for the upcoming summer window.

Fichajes reported that Rudiger hasn’t entirely convinced in Ancelotti’s backline in his debut season at the Bernabeu, and the club may be open to selling him in the summer if they manage to secure the services of Josko Gvardiol from RB Leipzig. Therefore, Rudiger could potentially leave before his contract expires in 2026.

As Rudiger approaches 30 next month, Spurs would not have to spend extravagantly to bring the defender back to the Premier League, where he previously featured in 133 games for Chelsea.
