Real Madrid have signed up Kepa Arrizabalaga, as he joined on a season-long loan deal from Chelsea.

The 28-year-old Spain international joins Real Madrid, as the Los Blancos were looking for a goalkeeper replacement for Thibaut Courtois who was ruled out until the end of the season due to an ACL injury.

Kepa will wear the No. 25 shirt during his stay at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Real Madrid released a statement on the club’s official website, thus: “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.”
