Chelsea complete club-record £141.6M transfer

Chelsea FC and Real Madrid announced Wednesday on their respective websites they've agreed to transfer the star goalkeeper from the Premier League club to the Spanish giant.

Real Madrid confirmed Courtois will undergo a medical on Thursday morning before signing a six-year deal.

In making a move for Kepa the Blues eclipsed the previous world-record fee for a goalkeeper that was set by Liverpool in their acquisition of Roma's Alisson earlier this summer.

That status could be a considerable burden for the 23-year-old to bear as he adapts to a new country, club and league, but Kepa is adamant that the figure will not enter his thinking at Chelsea.

The Belgium global, named best goalkeeper at the World Cup this summer as he helped his country to third-place, signed a six-year deal after completing a medical on Thursday.

Kepa played 30 times in La Liga for Bilbao last season and kept seven clean sheets as the Basque side finished 16th in the table.

And thus, Kepa's move to Chelsea was triggered by Courtois leaving for Real Madrid, the very club that very almost prised the Spain global from Athletic in the first place.

What appears to be a massive oversight from Chelsea translates to the dream scenario for Real Madrid, however. In terms of the price, it's something I don't think about.

Kovacic will join Chelsea on loan until June 30, 2019 as part of the deal, with the Croatia global spending a season away from the club he joined from Inter Milan in 2015. I want to thank the fans for their great support.

Bilbao are notorious non-negotiators, only selling their players for the fees of their release clauses or for the demanded club fee. I just hope I can adjust and adapt as soon as possible but we're all different. Marca said "he would stay at Madrid" because "the club meant to increase his salary". "My goal was to come to Real Madrid, everyone knew that".
