Chelsea Sign Rudiger from Roma

Premier League champions Chelsea have signed Germany defender Antonio Rudiger from Roma on a five-year contract for an initial fee of £29m.

Rudiger, 24, completed the transfer one week after helping world champions Germany win the Confederations Cup.

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

The fee for Chelsea’s first major signing of the summer could rise to £33.3m with add-on clauses.
