Antonio Rudiger is set to put the pen to paper on a five-year deal to join Chelsea. We understand the German defender is in London, ready to undergo his medical at Stamford Bridge and this means that Antonio Conte will have am highly-rated defender to strengthen his squad.
It is understood Manchester City tried a last attempt to land Rudiger to Etihad Stadium yesterday, but Chelsea raised up the previous bid to £35m plus £4m in add-ons.
Rudiger’s agent was spotted in Manchester last morning, while today is expected to be in London as the Roma defender is set to join Chelsea.
Sky Sport in Italy believes the deal could be announced in the next few hours.
