Real Madrid leading the race for Manchester United transfer target

Real Madrid are leading the race for Manchester United transfer target Antonio Rudiger.

The Chelsea defender’s contract is due to expire this summer, and with sanctions placed against the club, they have been unable to tie him down to a new deal.

Now, it looks like Real Madrid are leading the race to sign the German defender, with Manchester United and Bayern Munich both withdrawing, according to Fabrizio Romano in the tweet below.

Toni Rüdiger has not signed with any club yet. Real Madrid are now the closest to find an agreement, talks ongoing for months. Real Madrid are on it since December. ?? #RealMadrid

PSG, interested. Man United and Bayern, out of the race… and Chelsea situation still not changed.
