Chelsea agree world record fee to sign Spanish goalkeeper

Chelsea agree world record fee to sign Spanish goalkeeper kikiotolu

London giants, Chelsea FC have agreed a world record fee to sign Spanish goalkeeper, Kepa ahead of likely Courtois departure.

Chelsea have agreed to pay a world record £71 million to sign Athletic Bilbao’s goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

With Courtois trying to force a move to Real Madrid by going, the blues have taken drastic action by paying Kepa’s Athletic Bilbao buy-out clause ahead of Thursday’s Premier League transfer deadline.

The deal which has been greeted by widespread astonishment would eclipse the £66.8m Liverpool paid Roma to make Alisson Becker the world’s most expensive goalkeeper in July.

The deal will also shatter Chelsea’s record that had stood at £57m for striker Alvaro Morata, who joined from Real last summer.

The path of Courtois to Real could be further smoothed by Real’s offer to send midfielder Mateo Kovacic on a season-long loan to Chelsea.

Along with Kepa, Kovacic is expected in London to complete a pre-deadline switch to Chelsea in what constitutes a frantic end to the transfer window.

Chelsea had budgeted for trying to sign a midfielder and a new goalkeeper in the remaining days of the transfer window, so the chance to get Kovacic without paying a fee appears to have freed cash to spend on Kepa.
