Antonio Rudiger's staggering Real Madrid wages broken down ahead of Chelsea star's free transfer

ANTONIO RUDIGER'S staggering Real Madrid wages reveal he is set to earn £50million over the course of his time at the Bernabeu.

The defender will leave Chelsea at the end of the season when his contract expires.

Thomas Tuchel confirmed the pair sat down for "private talks" where it was concluded the German would not wait for the new owners to come in to renew his deal.

And he looks on course to complete a free transfer to Real Madrid in the summer.

Los Blancos are set to send doctors over to London in the coming days to complete Rudiger's medical.

And assuming all goes to plan, the ex-Roma defender will put pen to paper on an initial four-year deal, with the option of an extra 12 months.

According to Marca, Rudiger is set to pocket £6.7m as a signing-on fee – split into quarters and paid annually.

That will be added to his £7.6m basic pay per season, which works out as a net weekly wage of £145,000.

Together, that will earn Rudiger £37m across the four seasons, around £9m less than his initial demands before he agreed to lower them.

By comparison, the 29-year-old turned down a contract extension at Chelsea worth £200,000 per week before the club were hit with sanctions preventing any new deals from being signed.

On top of the £37m in wages, the centre-back is set to bag an additional £13m in commissions with Real Madrid – taking the overall total to £50m.

Rudiger is viewed as the ideal signing for Carlo Ancelotti.

He has vast experience, including winning the Champions League last season, as well as versatility and leadership qualities.

The 50-cap international provides strong competition for Eder Militao – although his arrival could see David Alaba revert to left-back, where he spent much of his time with Bayern Munich.

But boss Ancelotti produced a phenomenal response when quizzed about the transfer on Tuesday.
