Chelsea have completed the signing of Antonio Rudiger from Roma in a deal which is reportedly worth a meaty £34million.
The German international centre-back has agreed a five-year contract at Stamford Bridge, directly replacing John Terry who went a-waltzin’ out of the exit door at the end of last season.
With clubs desperately trying to out-do each other in the ‘quirky player unveiling video’ racket, Chelsea served up this hot piece of nonsense to announce Rudiger’s arrival…

Crikey. We never thought we’d pine so hard to see players just holding up scarves in empty stadiums again.
Anyway, that’s Willy Caballero and Antonio Rudiger added to Antonio Conte’s squad so far this summer.
Decent signings both in different regards, but hardly the marquee business being demanded by the Italian coach.
Where’s that new striker coming from?
