Spanish giants Real Madrid are reportedly planning a January move for a key Chelsea player in January.

According to Alberto Pereiro via Onda Cero, Real Madrid will attempt to sign Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger in January and Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel will definitely not like this.

Rudiger’s Chelsea contract will expire at the end of the season and the Germany international is yet to reach an agreement with the Blues which means he can speak to other clubs in January.

After losing Raphael Varane to Manchester United and Sergio Ramos to PSG, Real Madrid are keen on signing a quality defender this summer and have identified Rudiger as a key transfer target.

Since joining Chelsea from Roma in the summer of 2017, Rudiger has won FA Cup, Europa League, Champions League and Super Cup.
