Real Madrid To Complete Thibaut Courtois Signing This Week

Thibaut Courtois Thibaut Courtois is trying to engineer an exit from Chelsea

We thought that Thibaut Courtois would be the man to do that, hence why we sacrificed club legend Petr Cech.

Kepa arrives at Stamford Bridge as the most expensive goalkeeper in footballing history, eclipsing the fee Liverpool spent to recruit Alisson from Roma this summer.

Today, Kepa Arrizabalaga completes his move to Chelsea....

It's ironic that Arrizabalaga is heading to Chelsea to replace Real Madrid-bound Courtois, because just a few months ago he almost simplified the goalkeeper merry-go-round by moving to the Bernabeu himself. The Belgium worldwide has less than 12 months remaining on his contract and this may witness Los Blancos acquire him for a knockdown price of around £32m.

Kepa may be a relatively unknown name for Chelsea fans and Premier League watchers, but there's a reason that Real Madrid were so eager to move for him just a few months ago.

"I am really happy and excited to be here @ChelseaFC".

With Thibaut Courtois joining Real Madrid, Chelsea signed 23-year-old Arrizabalaga as an instant replacement for the Belgium global.

Real Madrid announced in its statement Courtois will sign a six-year contract, and the club will present him to its fans Thursday at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

Bilbao are notorious non-negotiators, only selling their players for the fees of their release clauses or for the demanded club fee.

"I hope they remember me fondly, and I wish them all the best".

Nevertheless, the young Spaniard is not thinking about the pressures of the price tag and is instead relishing the challenge in the Premier League with Chelsea.

"Some players take more time to adapt, some less".

Kepa made the Athletic number-one spot his own after returning from a loan spell with Real Valladolid at the start of the 2016-17 campaign.

"I've got a new opportunity in my career now and I have to make the most of it".
