Chelsea sign Kepa in world record deal

Share

Mario Stanić was the first, followed by goalkeeper Matej Delač, striker Stipe Perica, and offensive midfielder Marijo Pašalić, though they have all been sent out on loan from The Blues.

At 80 million euros, Arrizabalaga will become the most expensive goalkeeper in football history, ahead of Liverpool's Alisson Becker, who moved from AS Roma for 75 million euros earlier in the transfer window.

He is now in his home country and barring any more surprises, will move to Real Madrid before tomorrow's 5pm transfer deadline for a fee of around £35m.

Arrizabalaga has played 53 La Liga matches for Athletic Bilbao since breaking into the team in 2016.

Hamas fires rockets, Israel bombs Gaza despite talk of truce
The Gaza Health Ministry say pregnant 23-year-old Enas Khammash and her 18-month daughter were killed in Jafarawi in central Gaza. One vehicle was hit, the IDF Spokesman's Unit said; IDF tanks responded by attacking a Hamas position in the region.

In January, he signed a new long-term contract with Bilbao until 2025, amid interest from Real Madrid. "I have been here for nearly 15 years, I joined when I was nine".

"It's a very important decision for me, for my career, and also for my personal life", Kepa told Chelsea's website. Since I was little I've been an Athletic fan and always will be.

"On Wednesday 8 August, 2018, at 12:02 hours, the Spanish Football League [LFP] has certified to our club that player Kepa Arrizabalaga has complied with the requirements to end unilaterally his contract that linked him with Athletic Club", a statement issued by Athletic read.

Athletic, all along, were only expected to sell should Kepa's buy-out clause be matched.

Brown dwarfs are failed stars-objects much larger than most planets but too small to sustain fusion reactions. Auroras on Earth are created when charged particles from the Sun interact with Earth's magnetic field.
