“I thought that Real Madrid would never happen to me. It just didn’t even cross my mind,” Ruediger told the Spanish sports newspaper AS. Numerous clubs were interested in him in the summer. However, only two clubs came into question for the native of Berlin.

“Obviously there were more teams, but I only considered two, Chelsea and Real Madrid. I’d worked very hard in London over the past five years and achieved a certain status. That was it, or Madrid,” stressed Ruediger .

FC Barcelona also wanted to sign the 29-year-old. However, the Catalans didn’t stand a chance against Real Madrid, as Rüdiger revealed: “They [Barça] knocked on my door, they did. But for me that wasn’t an option. As I said, Madrid wasn’t even a dream for me because it seemed out of reach… If you look at the names that have played here: Zidane, Ronaldo, Cristiano… To have the opportunity to play with Playing Modric, Kroos or Benzema… It was hard to say no.” (Quoted via sports picture)

When his move to the Bernabéu was confirmed, Rüdiger continued, he was overwhelmed. Half-brother and advisor Sahr Senesie brought him the news: “He was the one who told me. I couldn’t believe it! I still can’t explain what I felt. I still get goosebumps.”
