Courtois Sends Message To Hazard About Real Madrid Transfer

Justin GreeneAug 10, 2018

"He has played an important role in the club's success, and we wish him the best of luck for the future", it read.

Additionally, Chelsea now reportedly rid themselves of the pain in the side that would have been Thibaut Courtois should he have had to play in London this season.

Chelsea have made Kepa Arrizabalaga the world's most expensive goalkeeper as Maurizio Sarri's men swiftly moved to replace Real Madrid-bound Thibaut Courtois.

The 26-year-old added: "I had to take the chance (to come back) because my two kids are here".

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

Despite posting a heartfelt message to Chelsea fans - and being part of two title-winning squads - Courtois' kind words were not replicated by the Stamford Bridge faithful and he had to delete his post.

Spanish football giants Real Madrid's central midfielder Mateo Kovacic has joined Chelsea on a season-long loan deal on Thursday.

In January, he signed a new long-term contract with Bilbao until 2025, amid interest from Real Madrid.

Luka Modric returned to training at Real Madrid on Wednesday (Aug 8) along with five other World Cup players, against a background of contradictory rumours about his future.

Navas will now face an uphill battle to retain his starting spot over Courtois, who won the Golden Glove as the best goalkeeper at the World Cup with Belgium. I didn't expect to play last night but I feel good.

That status could be a considerable burden for the 23-year-old to bear as he adapts to a new country, club and league, but Kepa is adamant that the figure will not enter his thinking at Chelsea.

Kepa earning more than £190K-a-week at Chelsea is the true reflection of our desperation, rather than the transfer fee we paid for him.

"I had excellent references from them about the club, knowing them and being able to talk to them has been a great support for me over the last few days", he told Chelsea's official app, The 5th Stand.
