Chelsea fans react as Real Madrid linked with Antonio Rudiger transfer

Real Madrid have made Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger their number one transfer target for the January transfer window, according to Marca via the Daily Mail.

The defender has been in stunning form for the Blues. In the last six months, he has helped the club win the Champions League.

It would appear that becoming an integral part of Thomas Tuchel’s team isn’t enough, however.

He recently rejected a new deal worth £125,000-a-week deal. As a result, Chelsea could cash in on the centre-back during the January transfer window.

Losing him for free isn’t something the club will want to do and that could force the club’s hand when it comes to January.

After losing Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane, Carlo Ancelotti is desperate to bolster his defensive ranks.

He sees Rudiger as someone who can undoubtedly enhance his defensive options and could move in January.

The 28-year-old has enjoyed a trophy-laden time of things at Stamford Bridge. He has won two FA cup titles, the Europea League, Champions League and the Super Cup since arriving.

What have Chelsea fans said about Rudiger possibly leaving?

It would seem as though the fan base is divided. Many aren’t overly fussed if he goes, whilst others think it would be an aberration if he was to depart.

The Blues are in a great place right now and they won’t want anything to rock the boat. As a result, losing a top defender at the midway point of the season wouldn’t be ideal.

Rudiger has come on leaps and bounds under Tuchel and it would be a shame for Chelsea to see him leave.

Here is what the fan base have been saying on Twitter regarding the £100,000-a-week enforcer.
