Real Madrid Confirm Signing Of Thibaut Courtois From Chelsea

Thibaut Courtois is now set to join Real Madrid pending a medical after both Chelsea and Madrid announced they had agreed to a deal on Wednesday night.

Real Madrid is expected to pay Chelsea £35 million pounds for Thibaut Courtois and the deal includes Mateo Kovacic joining Chelsea on a season-long loan.

Courtois has now signed a six-year contract at Santiago Bernabeu.

Chelsea have already moved to replace Courtois, activating the €80 million (£71.5m) buyout clause in the contract of Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga to make him the world’s most expensive goalkeeper.
