Chelsea FC signed a £34 million, five-year deal with Roma’s defender Antonio Rudiger, who will play centre-back or right-back on the Premier League team next season.
Beefing up the defense
The Premier League champions have confirmed their signing with Antonio Rudiger from Roma on Sunday.
Chelsea FC signed a five-year deal with the German defender from AS Roma.
Antonio Rudiger, 24, is the second addition to Antonio Conte’s side after the acquisition of goalkeeper, Willy Caballero, was released by Manchester City.
Chelsea FC technical director Michael Emenalo said that while Antonio Rudiger is young, he is “experienced at club and international level” and has all of the “requisite attributes” to succeed in the Premier League.
Emenalo added that the champion Premier League team has had their eye on the 24-year-old player for some time now and are fully “confident” that he will fit in with the rest of the Chelsea team.
