Former Chelsea star, Antonio Rudiger has been officially unveiled as a Real Madrid player following a free transfer deal.
Earlier in the day, the 29-year-old completed his medical at the Sanitas La Moraleja University Hospital shortly after signing a four-year deal at the Bernabeu.
Speaking with reporters, Rudiger said: “It’s a very special day for all of us, but especially for me.
“I would like to thank my parents because without them I could not be here. They have always supported me and that throughout my life has been very very important.
“I also want to thank the president of Real Madrid for giving me the opportunity to play for this great club. I can promise you that I will give everything to this club. I want to win as many titles as we can. Hala Madrid and nothing else!”
Rudiger also confirmed that Barcelona showed an interest in signing him, but he told his brother, who is his agent and advisor, that it was ‘Real Madrid or nothing’.
The club’s president Florentino Perez added: “Today one of the best defenders in the world arrives at Real Madrid. Antonio, from now on you are part of a unique club and family.”
