Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri on Courtois, Kepa and Hazard speculation

  • Chelsea transfer news Real Madrid Mateo Kovacic

The full worth of the deal to take Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao to Chelsea has been revealed by the Telegraph's Matt Law.

Kepa, who was one of David de Gea's understudies at the World Cup, believes his fee shows that clubs have a greater appreciation for goalkeepers these days.

Just an hour or so after Thibaut Courtois had faced the cameras in Madrid, the world's most expensive goalkeeper Kepa was presented to the English media.

Belgium goalkeeper Courtois has always been a reported target for the European champions and he will leave Stamford Bridge subject to the completion of a medical on Thursday.

She attended high school in the Slovenian capital, Ljubljana, and changed her name to Melania Knauss when she started modelling. The Slovenian immigrants, a former auto dealer and textile factory worker, had been living in the U.S.as permanent residents .

If Chelsea's 2-0 loss to Manchester City in the Community Shield was anything to go by, the idea of reserve goalkeeper Willy Caballero playing week-in, week-out wouldn't be much comfort to supporters - and the arrival of Robert Green doesn't do much to reassure, either.

"Tell everyone loud and clear, I have as much enthusiasm for leaving Madrid as I do for dying", Navas said after Madrid's victory over Roma in a friendly in New Jersey on Tuesday, the night before Madrid completed their move for Courtois.

He has spent the past two seasons in Bilbao's first team, making 53 La Liga appearances. He's amassed a reputation for his sharp reflexes, ability to move quickly on his feet and rapid movement. Madrid earlier this year also signed 19-year-old Ukrainian goalkeeper Andriy Lunin.

Real Madrid confirmed Courtois will undergo a medical on Thursday morning before signing a six-year deal.

Kepa had been with Athletic since 2004, rising through the youth ranks.

But it might not have happened had it not been for former Liverpool and Napoli goalkeeper Pepe Reina, who Kepa has cited as the reason that he chose to join Chelsea. "I have been here for nearly 15 years, I joined when I was nine".

"They are all very comfortable at the club and they have encouraged me to make the move and have an global experience".

"I've got a new opportunity in my career now and I have to make the most of it". I realise the game in England is different, but I have been given fantastic references by other Spanish players in this league.

Other Echo Fighters introduced during the direct include Chrom from Fire Emblem and Dark Samus from the Metroid Prime series. When it comes to choosing music , the library you have available will be tied to the stage and the franchise it comes from.

That bolsters Maurizio Sarri's midfield options significantly. Interestingly, the reigning European champions did not include a buyout clause in the deal, despite the Croatian having expressed his desire to make a permanent move away from the club.
