Carlo Ancelotti is reported to be desperate to sign Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger on a free transfer this summer.

Antonio Rudiger runs out of contract at the end of the June with Chelsea. Antonio Rudiger joined Chelsea from Roma in 2017. After joining the Blues, Rudiger scored 12 goals and registered seven assists in 196 appearances.

The likes of Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United, Juventus, and Barcelona are believed to be interested in signing the defender.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid is also believed to be interested in signing the 29-year-old. He has scored five goals and assisted four times in 47 appearances for Chelsea this season.

According to Marca, Los Blancos were initially put off by Rudiger’s wage demands. However, are now willing to sign him after his agent lowered the amount required.

Moreover, several reports suggest that in a meeting with Florentino Perez, Carlo Ancelotti told the president last week that he wanted Antonio Rudiger to move to his club in the summer.
