Real Madrid have offered 24-year-old to Chelsea FC, claims reporter

Chelsea confirmed the departure of the 26-year-old with a statement on their website, signing off with praise for their former goalkeeper.

A move to Real Madrid will mean a return to Spanish football for Courtois, who played for Atletico Madrid before becoming Chelsea's number 1.

Kepa's deal eclipsed the 72.5 million euros Liverpool paid Roma to make Alisson Becker the world's most expensive goalkeeper in July.

"Subject to the completion of the deal Mateo Kovacic will join the Blues on a season-long loan".

"I fulfill a dream, the one I had as a child when I dreamed of stepping on the pitch of this stadium with the colours of Real Madrid, the best club in the world".

Hello All! It's Stuart Appleby here bringing you live Real Madrid news on Thursday.

How all of this plays out onscreen is still anyone's guess, but if you dig Jackson as Fury, get ready to see a lot more of him. And, of course, there's always a chance that he could also turn up in the still-untitled Avengers 4.

Kepa said he became aware of Chelsea's interest in signing him to be the replacement for new Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois several weeks ago, and that Athletic had rebuffed several offers from the club before his buyout clause was met on Wednesday. He is sad that I am leaving because we are very close there but he told me that London is an awesome city, ' Kovacic told theEvening Standard.

"So many things attracted me to the club - all the titles the club has won, the other players, the city, the English Premier League", Kepa said.

Chelsea have taken Croatia global Mateo Kovacic on a season-long loan from Real as part of the deal.

They are trying to get players out before the deadline shuts and want to offload Danny Drinkwater, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Kurt Zouma and Michy Batshuayi.

'He is very happy that I am here, ' the Belgium global claimed after kissing Madrid's badge inside his new stadium.
