Kepa Arrizabalaga ‘deal agreed’ as Chelsea trigger release clause

Kepa Arrizabalaga ‘deal agreed’ as Chelsea trigger release clause”

Courtois played for Atletico between 2011-2014 on loan from Chelsea before moving back to Stamford Bridge and becoming first choice there, forcing legend Petr Cech out of the squad.

Upon completing his move to Chelsea, Kepa said: "It's a very important decision for me, for my career, and also for my personal life".

The 26-year-old only had a year left on his deal and has been absent from training this week as he looked to push through a move before the transfer window ended for the Blues on Thursday.

Chelsea have signed Spanish goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga for a world record 80 million-euro ($92.8 million) fee from Athletic Bilbao, the Premier League club said on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old Spain global is now the most expensive goalkeeper of all time and will join the Blues on a seven-year deal.

Madrid's starting goalkeeper has been Keylor Navas, who helped the club win the last three Champions League titles.

The deal that sees Courtois join Real Madrid for a reported £35million sees midfielder Mateo Kovacic head the other way on a season-long loan.

The Croatia global revealed during the World Cup that he would seek a move away from the Bernabeu this summer as more than half of his appearances over the past three seasons have come from the bench.

Hazard has been strongly touted as a target for Real Madrid this summer but there is yet to be any official confirmation of the Spanish club's interest in signing him.

Chelsea FC will get their Premier League campaign under way with a clash against Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

The 22-year old will displace Liverpool's Alisson as the most expensive goalkeeper in world football, just a couple of weeks on from the Brazilian's £67 million move to Anfield. After playing for Inter Milan and Real Madrid, Kovačić's stint at Chelsea will make him the fifth Croatian footballer in history to wear the jersey of the London club.
