Saudi Arabia is making significant efforts to strengthen their football league by bringing in top players from around the world. 

In that context, a revelation made by El Chiringuito TV reports that one of the Saudi clubs, Al Nassr, has a big plan in the works. 

They are planning to make an incredible offer to Real Madrid defender Antonio Rudiger. It is said that Cristiano Ronaldo’s side is ready to offer him a contract that would last for four years, and they are willing to pay him an astonishing €100 million for this period. 

This huge amount of money shows just how serious they are about getting Rudiger to join their team.

Rudiger is important for Real Madrid

Currently, Rudiger is under contract with Real Madrid until 2026 after joining the Spanish giants from Chelsea in 2022. 

Although he faced some initial challenges adapting to his new team, he has since become a vital part of Carlo Ancelotti’s squad. 

The German international has not only proven his worth on the field but has also become a favourite among fans and a respected figure in the locker room.

During the 2023/24 season, the defender’s significance was made evident as he played a crucial role in Real Madrid’s successful Champions League campaign, showcasing his defensive prowess by effectively neutralizing threats from top players like Erling Haaland. 

Rudiger’s contribution to Real Madrid goes beyond his defensive skills. He made an impressive 48 appearances for the team this season, playing over 4000 minutes. 

This level of involvement underscores how indispensable he is to Ancelotti’s plans. Even at 31 years old, Rudiger is still at the peak of his career. 

Ambition over monitory benefits?

At 31 years old, Rudiger is expected to maintain his high level of performance for at least the next three to four seasons.

However, if he chooses to move to the Saudi league, he might be giving up the chance to compete for more Champions League titles with Real Madrid.

In conclusion, while Al Nassr’s offer is incredibly lucrative, Rudiger will need to weigh the financial benefits against the opportunity to continue achieving success with Real Madrid. 

His decision will not only impact his career but also influence Real Madrid’s defensive lineup in the coming seasons.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
