And he’s eager to begin the next chapter in a successful career with Rudiger, who will experience LaLiga for the first time.

The German also detailed his excitement at being contacted by Real for the first time about the move, which he reveals happened last autumn.

He told Marca: “I think in football as in life there are all chapters and this is a new one for me.

“Of course this new chapter is very big, it’s a big step for me. It’s probably the biggest of my entire career.

“The first time I hear about Madrid… imagine. It was like wow!

“The first time they contacted me was in September or October, I think I remember. A club like this doesn’t call often and it was amazing.”

Signing for Real also gives Rudiger a chance to reunite with former Chelsea star Eden Hazard – which the defender is looking forward to.

He spoke highly of the Belgian and supports him in showing the form that has made Hazard a fan favorite at Stamford Bridge.

Ruediger added: “I’m very happy to be reuniting with Eden, now in Madrid.

“I know these have been very tough years for him, with a lot of injuries and problems, but I still hope Madrid fans can see the Hazard I played with because he was without a doubt one of the best footballers of the world.
