“To be honest I didn’t speak to (Germany teammate) Toni Kroos too much about it here,” Rudiger told reporters.

“I spoke more to Mateo Kovacic about Real Madrid and he told me quite a lot.

“And because of him speaking a lot with [Luka] Modric, and because of him, I spoke with him and he told me ‘You’re going to enjoy it here, it’s the right step to do.

“I never heard anyone say anything bad about Madrid. I’m looking forward to starting.”
