After losing out on their main summer target, Romelu Lukaku, Chelsea took some consolation in completing the move of German defence rock, Antonio Rüdiger to Stamford Bridge on a five-year contract.

The deal for the Roma defender, who was solid at the back as Germany cruised to a Confederation Cup triumph recently in Russia was finalised on Saturday when the two clubs agreed a fee that could rise to £34million for the 24-year-old.

CHECKPOINTCHARLEY understands that personal terms have now been tidied up and the ex-Stutgatter will become the second major signing of the summer for the Premier League champions after the arrival Willy Caballero from Man City.

 An excited Rudiger said: “It’s a great feeling because not every player has the opportunity to join a huge club like this.

“I am looking forward to meeting up with my new team-mates and I’m very proud to officially become a Chelsea player.”

After spending the last two seasons in Serie A, joining Roma on loan at the start of the 2015-16 season, it was obvious to see in Russia that Rudiger has become a world class defender, like German coach, Joachim Löw had always believed.

Solid move by Chelsea.
