After it was confirmed that Courtois is going to Real Madrid, Chelsea managed to quickly find him a replacement.
Chelsea have paid Athletic Club a world record £72 million for Kepa Arrizabalaga. This fee beats the previous record of Liverpool paying £65 million for goalkeeper Alisson Becker from Roma.
Kepa signed a massive 7 year deal with his new club.
“It is a very important decision for myself, my career and my personal life”, the goalkeeper told the club’s official website.
“The titles, the players, the Premier league, the city are all things that attracted me to this club. I am very glad that Chelsea decided to trust me and take me in”, added the 23 year old.
