Real Madrid have announced Kepa’s signing

He joins the long list of Chelsea players to have left the club this summer, which includes Mason Mount, Kai Havertz and N’Golo Kante.

And some fans think Kepa is the latest Blue to upgrade by changing clubs.

One supporter reacted to the news saying: “Mount upgraded, Havertz, upgraded, Loftus-Cheek upgraded, Kepa upgraded.

“All went to bigger clubs but I’m supposed to believe they were the problem ”

Another fan simply added: “He is upgrading.”

A third said: “He chose the better club.”

Another commented: “He really went up a notch.”

Kepa signed for Chelsea in 2018 for £71.5million – a world record fee for a goalkeeper.


He has made 163 appearances for the Blues but spent large spells out of the team after losing form.

Edouard Mendy was brought in to replace the Spaniard in 2020 but Kepa won his place back under Graham Potter last season.

But the capture of Robert Sanchez from Brighton meant an exit was always a possibility for Kepa this summer.
