After making his professional debut with Stuttgart, Berlin-born defender Antonio Rüdiger developed into one of the best center backs in the world with AS Roma and Chelsea, and in the summer of 2022 he chose Real Madrid as his new home after his contract expired at Stamford Bridge.
The 30-year-old defender has found his place in Spain and has made 28 appearances so far this season. He has played 28 games so far this season, and his team is in a tight race with Girona for the top spot in the standings. He is also a frequent call-up to the German national team, where he has played in 66 matches.
According to Nacional, the experienced center back is eager to draw up a new contract in order to be paid for his services, and is waiting for an offer from Liverpool, who are looking to strengthen their final line, in order to get the upper hand in the negotiations.
32-year-old defender Joel Matip is out of contract at the end of the season and is likely to leave the club with an injury. Virgil van Dijk, who is the same age, is not sure how much more he can play at the forefront in the future, and the time for a generational change is approaching.
He has plenty of experience in the Premier League, but there are many factors that make him disliked by coach Jurgen Klopp, such as his emotional volatility and his unwillingness to chase until the end in losing games, so he does not have a future as a probable target.
It can be seen as information released by the players who want to create a ready-made offer from other clubs in order to mislead Real Madrid. The German defender is also not eager to play at Anfield, and it seems to be nothing but gossip news.
