LATEST NEWS: Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that real Madrid has agreed with Chelsea on a deal 🤝 to sign their goalkeeper currently on loan at Real Madrid on a permanent deal


Real Madrid is once more coping with a season beset by injuries. This time around, Los Blancos have lost several important players to protracted injuries, but they have so far managed to function without them. Thibaut Courtois, who suffered an ACL tear only days before the season began, has arguably been the biggest casualty of the season.

To provide in for the Belgian, Real Madrid moved quickly and wisely to sign Chelsea custodian Kepa Arrizabalaga on a season-long loan. If all goes as planned, the Spaniard might wind up at Santiago Bernabeu for some time to come.

Real Madrid is prepared to negotiate with Chelsea over a long-term contract for Kepa, according to The Sun. However, they refuse to part with the Spanish custodian for a transfer sum higher than £17.5 million.

Kepa is a good fit in the Real Madrid starting lineup. The Spaniard has only lost one game while playing for Los Blancos, and only twice have they let up more than one goal. Big shoes were left by Courtois, but the Chelsea loanee has performed admirably thus far.

Real Madrid wants to pay £17.5 million for a Chelsea player.

It is hardly surprising that Real Madrid would try to sign Kepa to a long-term contract. The contract for Andriy Lunin is coming to an end this year. The 24-year-old could need to leave Santiago Bernabeu and get consistent playing time in order to advance in his career.

Kepa’s permanent signing shouldn’t prove to be a challenging transaction. Next summer, the Spaniard’s contract with Chelsea will expire after one year.

Naturally, Chelsea would suffer a significant loss if the Spaniard, who they purchased for approximately £71.6 million from Athletic Bilbao, were to leave for a £17.5 million transfer fee. Let’s observe how events transpire.
