Written by on August 9, 2018

Thibaut Courtois has completed his move to Real Madrid from Chelsea.

The deal is believed to be worth around £35m with Croatia international Mateo Kovacic joining the Blues on a season-long loan as part of the deal.

Courtois spent seven years at Chelsea but his first three on-loan at Atletico Madrid.

The Belgium goalkeeper had one year left on his deal at Stamford Bridge but spoke of his desire to return to Spain to be closer to his two children.

After completing his medical, the 26-year-old was presented to the media at Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu.

Courtois won two Premier League titles, one FA Cup and one League Cup during his time at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea have replaced Courtois with the £71.6m signing of Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao.
