Kepa joins Real Madrid on loan

Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has joined Real Madrid on a season-long loan deal.

The 28-year-old Spain international, who joined the Blues in a £71.6m switch from Athletic Bilbao in August 2018, is contracted at the Bernabeu until June next year.

Real Madrid were looking for a new goalkeeper after Thibaut Courtois suffered an ACL injury in training on Thursday which is expected to keep him out for most of the 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.
