Transfer: Real Madrid Sign Kepa On Loan From Chelsea

La Liga side, Real Madrid have signed Chelsea keeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga on a season-long loan.

The 28-year-old keeper was not in the starting lineup and substitution for the Premier League side during Chelsea’s opening-day draw against Liverpool on Sunday at Stamford Bridge.

25-year-old Robert Sanchez was in the post for Chelsea on Sunday.

Real Madrid signed Kepa as a replacement for the club’s first-choice goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois, who suffered an ACL injury days before the new season and will reportedly be out for most of the 2023–24 season.

A statement on Real’s official website said, “Real Madrid CF and Chelsea FC have agreed on the loan of the player Kepa Arrizabalaga, who is linked to the club this season, until June 30, 2024.

“In his five seasons at Chelsea, he has won one Champions League, one Club World Cup, one European Super Cup and one Europa League.

“This year, he has received the award for the best save in the Premier League for the 2022/2023 season.

“Kepa is an international with the Spanish team, with which he has been proclaimed champion of the 2023 Nations League. With Spain, he also won the U19 European Championship in 2012.”

Kepa will be formally presented as a Real Madrid player on Tuesday afternoon.
