Chelsea agree to sell Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid

The Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri declined to discuss Courtois or Kepa after his side's final pre-season friendly on Tuesday night, against Lyon at Stamford Bridge.

Granovskaia is pleased with the Croatia international's arrival, telling the club's official website: "We are very happy to welcome Mateo to the Chelsea family".

I saw it in 2011 in a report of the local TV TVL, who interviewed him while he was packing to go to Madrid. I am joining a team that is winning all the time'. I believe my qualities will fit in well with this style. It's aggressive, he likes to attack, putting pressure on the opposition and I like that.

"But I want to let everyone know I have made the decision calmly and in a responsible way. I feel brilliant in this squad".

The two clubs reached a deal reportedly worth 80 million euros and the 23-year-old Spaniard signed a seven-year contract with the 2017 English Premier League champion.

Arrizabalaga, who made his full global debut for Spain against Costa Rica in a November friendly past year, will feel he has plenty to prove at Chelsea, as he attempts to live up to his remarkable price tag.

"I have references on him from players like Pepe Reina and others".

"I have spoken to various players before I came here; [Cesar] Azpilicueta, [Alvaro] Morata, Pedro".

"It's very courageous of the club to pay for me".

"What attracted me to Chelsea?". I will try to do my best for this club.

"It is an accumulation of things really and I am delighted that the club has signed me".
