Kepa Arrizabalaga is already in Madrid in preparation to travel to London and sign for Chelsea.
With Thibaut Courtois on the verge of signing for Real Madrid, Chelsea have been forced into action in the transfer market to find a replacement.
There are very few goalkeepers in the world who are either as good as Courtois or have the potential to be – Arrizabalaga is one of them, and we’ve got him!
The Spaniard will fly to London tomorrow, according to Marca, ahead of official confirmation that he is a Chelsea player. That could come in the afternoon or evening.
The below video (supposedly) shows Arrizabalaga in an airport in Madrid. He’ll stay the night in the capital city before flying to London in the morning.

It’s a little surreal that Chelsea are set to break the world transfer record fee for a goalkeeper. Let’s hope that the £71.6M proves to be a worthy investment!
