Chelsea sign Kepa in world record deal

Chelsea sign Kepa in world record deal

Thibaut Courtois is keen for former Chelsea team-mate Eden Hazard to join him at Real Madrid.

We thought that Thibaut Courtois would be the man to do that, hence why we sacrificed club legend Petr Cech.

"When I arrived at Chelsea I had to replace [Petr] Cech and there was the same question", Courtois said.

Kepa Arrizabalaga believes goalkeepers are finally getting the credit they deserve after Chelsea paid a world record 80-million-euro fee for a 'keeper to Athletic Bilbao for his services. This would be the second time it has been broken during this window after Liverpool won the race to sign Allison from Roma. I was only 19 years old when the club showed a great belief in my abilities.

"It's very fearless of the club to pay for me".

Arrizabalaga, who only signed a new seven-year deal with Athletic in January, becomes Maurizio Sarri's second high profile signing since taking charge, following in the footsteps of midfielder Jorginho, who followed Sarri from Napoli for around £50m.

Best meteor shower of the year peaks this weekend
The Perseid meteor shower may be an annual event, but it's such an exciting celestial show that it's always worth another look. Although not an outburst year (150-200 meteors per hour) spectators should see about 60-70 meteors per hour this weekend.

Courtois signed his six-year Madrid contract before addressing the media, and he voiced his delight at completing a £35 million move to "the best club in the world".

Athletic confirmed on Wednesday that the 23-year-old's release clause of 80million euros (£71m) was activated and his contract terminated, although made no mention of Chelsea.

Atletico supporters have hit out at Courtois following his £35million move to Real Madrid from Chelsea, having previously spent three seasons on loan with Atletico.

He wrote: "No permanent option in Kovacic deal, so Chelsea are just developing players for Real Madrid while Loftus-Cheek and co sit on the sidelines".

"I had excellent references from them about the club, knowing them and being able to talk to them has been a great support for me over the last few days", he told Chelsea's official app, The 5th Stand. I didn't expect to play last night but I feel good. "I want to thank them for their support".
