Antonio Rudiger’s move to Real Madrid is almost confirmed, with Fabrizio Romano claiming an agreement has been reached.
With the big defender coming in, Carlo Ancelotti will have to rethink his regular lineup, here are two options:
Alaba at left-back
Real Madrid XI: Courtois, Alaba, Rudiger, Militao. Carvajal, Casemiro, Modric, Camavinga, Vinicius, Benzema, Rodrygo
In this formation, David Alaba will return to his left-back position which he played for many years at Bayern Munich.
With Marcelo leaving, that would provide an extra option to Mendy in that position.
Real Madrid XI: Courtois, Alaba, Rudiger, Militao – Carvajal, Valverde, Modric, Modric, Vinicius, Benzema, Asensio
Ancelotti can play a back-three to accommodate Rudiger.
Fede Valverde can be used as a wing-back, with Carvajal playing the same on the right.
