Thibaut Courtois signs for Real Madrid

Thibaut Courtois signs for Real Madrid

Chelsea's hand was forced after No 1 Courtois failed to report for pre-season training in a bid to force through a move to Real Madrid.

But three years spent in the Spanish capital forged lasting connections for Courtois, and returning to Madrid will enable him to spend more time with his two children, who live there with his former partner.

"Kepa, who is eligible to play in Saturday's Premier League opener against Huddersfield, will train with his new team-mates for the first time tomorrow".

Kepa´s arrival at Stamford Bridge came shortly after Chelsea had agreed to sell Belgian global ´keeper Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid for a reported fee of 35 million euros.

According to Matt Law of The Telegraph, Chelsea have agreed to meet Athletic Bilbao's Kepa Arrizabalaga's buyout clause, which would make the Basque shot stopper a world record signing at €80 million.

"He has already demonstrated fantastic quality and consistency and will be a big part of any success Chelsea have in the coming years".

"It's a very important decision for me, for my career and for my personal life", he explained to Chelsea's club website.

When asked by CNN whether the issue of Russian interference came up, Paul said he had "general discussions about a lot of issues". His summit with Putin in Helsinki was their first full-fledged meeting since Trump took office in January 2017.

"(He has ended) the relationship that linked him to us since the 2004-05 season and the amount of compensation established in the contract has been deposited".

Manchester United legend Gary Neville believes Chelsea will miss Thibaut Courtois.

Italy worldwide Jorginho is the only big name signing at Chelsea since Sarri's arrival as manager after his £57m move from Napoli, with the doubts over the future of a host of star names lingering ahead of Thursday's transfer deadline.

Kovacic will join Chelsea on loan until June 30, 2019 as part of the deal, with the Croatia global spending a season away from the club he joined from Inter Milan in 2015.

The club have confirmed he has signed a seven-year contract.

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.
