Barcelona and Real Madrid are Interested in Signing Chelsea's Key Defender On a Free Transfer.

Chelsea's German center-back has emerged as one of Barcelona and Real Madrid's key transfer target for the summer transfer window. Both Real Madrid and Barcelona are struggling defensively this season. Barcelona have conceded a high number of goals, approximately 2 goals per game this season in all competitions. On the other hand, their main rival, Real Madrid are also not perfect defensively.

Antonio Rudiger helped Chelsea to win the UEFA Champions League trophy and The UEFA Super Cup last season. He played an important and crucial role in the competitions. Last month, Rio Ferdinand described the German as the current best defender in the English Premier League. Currently, Rudiger is out of contract in the summer after rejecting a new deal with Chelsea.

Real Madrid are looking for a defender to fill the void left by Sergio Ramos when he signed for PSG. The Spanish giants signed David Alaba on a free transfer last summer transfer window. Alaba is yet to get a perfect center back patner. Spanish outlets Marca and Murndo Deportivo recently reported that Rudiger is Real Madrid's number one target in the summer transfer window.

Barcelona are also desperate to sign a solid center back. This is because they have conceded a high number of goals this season as compared to previous 3 seasons at the same time of the season. The Catalan club has started the season on a sluggish way as they are currently position 9 in Laliga and last position in their Champions League group. Spanish outlets Marca and Murndo Deportivo reported that Rudiger is their main focus in the summer transfer window.
