Thibaut Courtois COMPLETES Real Madrid transfer: Goalkeeper unveiled at the Bernabeu

Thibaut Courtois COMPLETES Real Madrid transfer: Goalkeeper unveiled at the Bernabeu

The Basque club confirmed the 23-year-old's release clause has been activated and his contract terminated, although there is no mention of Chelsea.

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

Chelsea have taken Croatia global Mateo Kovacic on a season-long loan from Real as part of the deal.

Courtois has been absent from training this week before Thursday's closure of the transfer window for Premier League clubs.

Kepa, who came close to joining Real Madrid in January, becomes the world's most expensive goalkeeper, his fee surpassing the 67 million euros Liverpool splashed out for Roma's Alisson last month.

Keylor Navas has vowed to fight Courtois all the way and defend his place as Real's No.1 goalkeeper. I will try to do my best for this club.

"Kepa is a talent we have admired for a long time and we are extremely excited about his arrival", she said. "It's an accumulation of things, and I am very glad Chelsea has chose to trust me and to take me in as well".

The 24-year-old Croatia worldwide arrives at Stamford Bridge with a big reputation, but there is no official option for Chelsea to make the move permanent after the 2018/19 season.

Luka Modric's heart is set on a move to Inter but this will not stop Real Madrid president Florentino Perez from making a last ditch attempt to change the 32-year-old Croatian's mind.

Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri praised Arrizabalaga on Tuesday night.

"We have tonight agreed terms with Real Madrid for the transfer of Thibaut Courtois, subject to the agreement of personal terms and a medical".
