Chelsea complete world-record £72m signing of Kepa Arrizabalaga on seven-year deal from Athletic Bilbao (Photos)

Chelsea has completed the signing of goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao for a world-record fee of £72million.
The 23-year-old has put pen to paper on a seven-year deal at the Blues and will be the club’s No 1 following the departure of Thibaut Courtois, who has sealed a £35million move to Real Madrid on a six-year deal.

Kepa’s deal now makes him the most expensive goalkeeper in the World, followed by Brazil’s Alisson who Liverpool paid £66.8m for last month.

On moving to Stamford Bridge, Kepa said: ‘It’s a very important decision for me, for my career, and also for my personal life.

‘So many things attracted me to the club, all the titles the club has won, the other players, the city, the English Premier League.

‘He has already demonstrated fantastic quality and consistency and will be a big part of any success Chelsea have in the coming years.
