Chelsea transfer news Real Madrid Mateo Kovacic

Hello All! It's Stuart Appleby here bringing you live Real Madrid news on Thursday.

Here is how social media have reacted to the 26-year-old's move, with many tipping Barcelona's Lionel Messi to score goals aplenty when they face Madrid.

Although Kepa conceded 43 goals in 30 league games last season, that was mainly due to the deficiencies of the weak team in front of him.

The Blues have confirmed that they have activated Spain worldwide Kepa Arrizabalaga's release clause of £71 million to sign him from LaLiga side Athletic Bilbao.

Chelsea appear to have learnt from their mistakes, with Kepa signing a seven-year contract.


"Today is the day I leave my Athletic home, it is a day of mixed feelings to leave the club I joined as a nine-year-old, ” wrote Kepa".

"I want to continue to add success to this club's history".

"I hope I'll be able to adjust and adapt as soon as possible".

Asked what he can offer Madrid that Navas cannot, Courtois said it is hard to say. It's a great challenge to me and means a lot.

Kovacic, who moved as part of the deal that sent goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to Madrid, will help manager Maurizio Sarri round out the squad as the "midfielder with different characteristics" he said he wanted earlier this week.


Reina played under Sarri for three years before moving on to AC Milan this summer, when Sarri also moved on to join Chelsea.

Sanchez had previously played in England with Aston Villa and he said: "I always maintained the same desire to return and here I am, with the same mission, with the same desire and dream".

"In terms of the price and me being the most expensive keeper in the world, it's something I don't think about", he said.

Report after report has surfaced over Courtois' exit, with stories going as far to say that a fee had been agreed between Chelsea and Real Madrid for the Belgian.
