Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger reportedly has a preferred destination in mind with his contract set to expire at the end of the season.
The Germany international is yet to come to an agreement with the Blues over an extension and has been tipped to leave at the end of the season.
Reports in England claim that Chelsea have made an offer to the 28-year-old, although the deal does not meet the player's demands.
With Rudiger now able to sign a pre-contract elsewhere, football.london have reported the defender prefers a move to Real Madrid over Paris Saint-Germain.
Los Blancos are still keen on bolstering their defence after losing both Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane before the start of the season.
Blues manager Thomas Tuchel recently stated he wouldn't try anything special to convice Rudiger to stay.
"I don’t know if that helps! Maybe that would push him out," Tuchel said, as per Metro.
"I don’t feel he needs a lot of coffees with me. He needs to feel the connection and the trust, he wants to feel it by minutes and actions. He doesn’t need words and pampering.
"He is a top professional, this is what he proves. He is very important, nothing has changed.
"It’s in good hands, I trust the club and my player. it’s not a problem for me. Toni can still deliver for us so he’s super reliable, nothing has changed. Once something changes you will be one of the first to know."
