Losing 1-0 away to a desperate Everton isn’t the end of the world. I mean, the game was a difficult watch from a ‘Chels’ perspective, but this campaign is a write off for the majority of clubs at present. Sorry, as long as the West Londoners secure at least fourth, I should say. No, scrap that sentiment – third should still be achieved with this roster and hardened collective mentality. Unfortunately, bigger problems, as previously discussed, prevail on Fulham Road. Namely Rudiger, in addition to the Romelu Lukaku paradox.
‘Toni’ is off to Madrid, as we all know; it is surely painful for the faithful to accept. Fabrizio Romano asserts that Carlo Ancelotti was key in the switch as he was very keen to secure the Germany defender’s signature. A four year agreement will be announced at the end of the term.
Real Madrid will have Antonio Rüdiger's contract signed in the coming days. German centre back will join Real on a four year deal, the agreement has been reached also on commission and more. ⚪️🤝 #RealMadrid
Ancelotti was key as he really wanted Rüdiger.
