The summer transfer window closed on August 31st, with many clubs signing their transfer targets even on the day of the deadline. The January transfer window will be the next one, and some clubs are already making plans for it.
Real Madrid is one club that has already made plans to make signings in January. On transfer deadline day, the Spanish giants signed David Alaba from Bayern Munich and French teenager Edouard Camavinga. Carlo Ancelotti's team is trying to reinforce, particularly in the defensive positions, and the Italian manager has one player in mind.
During the January transfer window, Ancelotti wants Real Madrid's board to make a move for Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger. Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho believes the German is the ideal alternative for Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane, who both left the club during the summer transfer window.
Antonio Rudiger's current Chelsea contract expires in less than two years, and despite multiple conversations with the Chelsea Board, he has yet to negotiate a new term.
A move to Real Madrid is a possibility in this situation, but it is contingent on the German defender's choice on his future. However, it remains to be seen whether Ancelotti will be granted his request and Real Madrid will make a genuine attempt to buy Rudiger from Chelsea in January.
