Toni Rüdiger has already completed his medical tests as new Real Madrid player, club sources confirm. Deal now 100% done as reported earlier. ⚪️ #RealMadrid— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) May 10, 2022

Florentino has masterminded another signing of a top defender on a free transfer, less than a year after securing the services of another Bundesliga graduate, David Alaba.
Miguel Gutierrez has recovered well from his surgery. The signing of the Rudiger will most likely push him closer to a loan given that the club would have Alaba and Ferland as LB options. There’s also been some whispers about a new contract for Marcelo.

There’s a handful of players Flo wouldn’t part with for.. Imagine the horror when the name ‘Marco Asensio’, entered my mind mid-sentence. That’s enough of that.
I suspect we’ll being hearing a lot about young Adeyemi. Who knows, he might even make his way to the Bernabeu someday, if he maintains his current trajectory.
The sting in the tale..

Aurélien Tchouaméni has agreed in personal terms to sign for Liverpool after the end of this season. His agents have spoken to the club and have negotiated a price of £42 million for the French Midfielder.
There’s been some noise linking Aurelien Tchouameni to Liverpool. Real Madrid have a strong interest in Tchouameni. We’ve lost out on Haaland. Rudiger and Tchouameni won’t cost anywhere near what Haaland would cost. Money is not an issue. I wonder what the hold up is.
