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.

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".
